to Carriganóg Racing

The Home of Group 1-Winning Trainer Joseph O’Brien.

Set in the picturesque location of Owning Hill near Piltown in County Kilkenny, Carriganóg Racing is headed up by Joseph O’Brien and is based in a yard that is steeped in racing history.

Joseph’s grandfather Joe Crowley was the first to train from the yard on Owning Hill and enjoyed great success there. In later years, Joseph’s parents Annemarie and Aidan were both crowned Irish Champion National Hunt Trainers while based there and Annemarie’s sister Frances also trained an abundance of winners from the yard. Quite literally thousands of winners have been trained on its famous uphill gallop over the decades. With there having been substantial improvements and developments made to the yard in recent years, it is now very much a world-class training facility.

Our team is at the heart of
Carriganóg’s success…

Without the experienced, dedicated and diligent team that we have here at Owning Hill, Carriganóg Racing would not have the success and revered track record it does. We’re always building our team and only look for the very best people in the industry to continue to grow and nurture the future of horse racing. If you think you have what it takes to join us, we’d love to hear from you…

Carriganóg has a range
of world-class facilities
that surround its famous uphill gallop.
