PAUL D'ARCY is a Group 1, Classic winning trainer, based in Newmarket. Since starting out in 1998, Paul has achieved great success from a very small number of horses and has demonstrated his ability to achieve excellent results at the top level. Paul's win strike-rate is always excellent and in 2011 it was 12% with 20 winners, 21 seconds and 21 thirds from 20 horses. Prize money won was over £143,000. The highlights of the season were Listed races won by EDINBURGH KNIGHT and CALEDONIAN SPRING and the win of EDINBURGH KNIGHT at the new Champions Day at Ascot.

The pinnacle of Paul's training career thus far is the Irish 2000 Guineas win in 2003 of INDIAN HAVEN. Paul was responsible for buying INDIAN HAVEN as a yearling for 62,000 guineas and campaigning the horse to win the Free Handicap before winning in Ireland. There cannot be many trainers to have achieved such a feat from a yard of 20 horses.

Paul has always sought to gain valuable 'black type' for fillies and has achieved it for NIGHT LILY, SUZI'S DECISION, KYLANE, LADY HIGH HAVENS, TORA BORA, CIRCLE OF LIGHT and TI ADORA. The highlight of the 2015 season has been the win of SHADOW HUNTER in the Listed Roses Stakes at York and her excellent third in the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes at Newmarket.

Paul's record with handicappers is equally good, with the likes of multiple winners, EDINBURGH KNIGHT, NIGHT LILY, NELSON'S BOUNTY, SIR DUKE, EASTERN BREEZE , TI ADORA, RED INVADER and SPRING LOADED. Two year olds have also been successful including Group 2-placed LADY HIGH HAVENS, and Listed winners CALEDONIAN SPRING and FOREST MAGIC.

Paul’s longstanding association with Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock has proved highly fruitful. Early on in their association the purchase and improvement of Caledonian Spring proved exemplary. That horse was sold on to Hong Kong for a tidy profit and many similar transactions have followed. This is a clearly a real boon to Paul’s training operation as the realisation of a horse’s residual value has become increasingly important below the very top level.

Perhaps the main advantage to being in a small yard is the time to give individual attention to horses to identify their needs and to maximise their potential. Paul aims to get the very best from every single horse, no matter what its ability. Our owners are very valued and feel free to visit the yard at any time and actively participate in their horses training. Paul is an excellent communicator with his owners and is always accessible.

Paul's years as a jockey, riding for amongst others, SIR MICHAEL STOUTE, BARRY HILLS and SIR MARK PRESCOTT, stand him in better stead than most to assess a horse's ability and give him a another perspective on training.
