Ado McGuinness Racing prides itself with excellent facilities including a 6 furlong sand gallop, horse walker, 20 acres of turn-out paddocks and equine spa.

“The use of the beach as part of our daily routine is what sets us apart from other racehorse training establishments. I have no doubt that the beach has played a major role in the success of the stable down through the years. We are blessed to have such a facility on our doorstep”
– Ado McGuinness

Below is a little taster of our facilities and what we do on a daily basis with our equine athletes.


We’ve had horses with ado for the last 16 years. Never could we have dreamed of the great experiences ahead of us when we first walked into his yard. We have had almost 40 winners with him to date including the Irish Lincoln, Birdcatcher Premier Handicap, 2 graded hurdles and a graded chase. We’ve had four wins at the Galway festival and won at the Punchestown and Leopardstown festivals. On behalf of our club I cannot emphasise enough what a pleasure our involvement with Ado McGuinness Racing has been and long may it continue

After in-depth research our choice of Ado McGuinness Racing to train our Dooley Thoroughbreds racehorses has been a dream come true. Ado has a hard working team around him and communication via Stephen Thorne with the owners is perfect. The use of the beach helps the horses minds and recovery after races. The yard makes you feel part of the family and its definitely been the best choice we could of ever made
