Senior Assistant Trainer - Robin O’Ryan

Robin joined us as Assistant Trainer in December 2005 and we have never looked back. To say he is an invaluable member of the team would be an understatement!

Rob takes over the reins in Richards’s absence and is a familiar face at both the races and the bloodstock sales.
