Ger Lyons | Racing

WELCOME to Glenburnie

Our top-class training facility, stabling just under one hundred horses, is located in the Boyne Valley, Co. Meath.

Over the 25 plus years of his career, Ger has built up a skilled team with a wealth of experience. His motto ‘Keep it Simple’ means that we operate a smooth routine which the horses enjoy. The dedicated team on the ground ensure that each and every horse's needs are met while experienced work riders, including champion jockey Colin Keane, provide valuable feedback from the gallops.

From the outset Ger has sought to grow his string and, most importantly, the quality of that string. During the nationwide lockdown of 2020, Guineas weekend took place in a virtually empty Curragh one month later than usual. With an outstanding ride from Colin, Siskin landed the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas (Gr1) in the colours of the late Prince Khalid Abdullah. A first classic! Roll on just five weeks and the Camelot filly, Even So, went into the Juddmonte Irish Oaks (Gr1) somewhat under the radar. She won by two lengths. The 2020 season was an incredible year for the yard but with both stable stars now retired to stud in Japan, we are meeting the next challenge of building on that success.
