Paul Flynn Racing

Owners become part of the Flynn Racing family.

We offer a personal and tailored experience to maximise the potential of every horse

Welcome to Aughnavalley Stables

Based in the beautiful surrounds of Colehill, Co Longford Paul Flynn’s dual purpose yard is a perfectly personalised operation which stands out from the crowd. It’s a combination of a keen eye for an opportunity, a wealth of experience and attention to detail has led to Paul Flynn being recognised as one of the best dual-purpose go to trainers in the UK & Ireland.

Paul runs a growing, close knit operation and prides himself on delivering a personal experience. The yard has become adept at getting any horse to the top of their game by catering specifically for unique and individual needs, allowing the experience and dedicated team to unlock each horse’s maximum potential.

The staff get to know each horse and owner requirements individually and then map out a route best tailored to each horse’s ability. Owners become part of the Flynn Racing family, getting to know Paul and everyone at Colehill for that personal and fully engaged experience in the great world of horse ownership.

This mantra has culminated in a plethora of winners including successful raiding parties to the UK and those flagship big race wins such as the Galway Hurdle in 2011 with the brilliant Moon Dice.

Paul recognises the importance of all his staff at Colehill and is extremely proud of the hard working, passionate and committed group who make the whole experience rewarding for the operation, the horses in their care and the owners.

Pauls Training Record 2017/18

Did you know:   

Paul rode over 200 winners in the UK whilst based with Philip Hobbs, including What’s Up Boys to win the Coral Cup at the 2000 Cheltenham Festival. Then, a year and a half later, he rode the same horse to win the prestigious Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury.

Once hanging up the boots it was always a natural progression that Paul would turned his attention to training. He had his first runner, Bronte Bay, at Gowran Park in April 2007, and has quickly gone from strength to strength as a top class handler.

He won the valuable Arthur’s Day Handicap at the Galway Festival in 2009 with Drunken Sailor, who won four more handicaps besides, and he then won the prestigious Galway Hurdle with the talented Moon Dice in 2011.
