Our Notable Winners

The measure of any organisation is sustained success over a long period of time.  At Paul Nolan racing we have been fortunate to train some wonderful horses since 1996. We have enjoyed some great days in Cheltenham since Dabiroun was our first Festival winner in 2005 also giving Nina Carberry her first festival success. Three Galway Hurdles is a unique achievement and in 2016, we achieved big winners at the Leopardstown festivals with The Mooch and Golan Lodge.
