Fergal has been involved in racing ever since leaving his beloved Ireland in 1989, in pursuit of a National Hunt training career in England.
Located just a stone`s throw from Cheltenham, O`Brien McPherson Racing has two training yards offering some of the best facilities in the country.
Following the merging of Fergal O`Brien Racing and McPherson Racing in the summer of 2021, to become O`Brien McPherson racing, winners continue aplenty. Never ones to rest on their laurels, Fergal along with Graeme McPherson are focused on becoming the very best and offering the very best for their owners.
Training is spread across the two yards at Ravenswell and Martins Hill with facilities including over 160 boxes, state of the art hill and circular gallops, turf and all-weather schooling fields, horse walkers and more. Horse welfare is paramount and the facilities allow for the very best care and attention to all horses.
Fergal is Head Trainer and supported by Sally Randell as Assistant Trainer overseeing both yards within the business. Graeme oversees the day-to-day management of the operation. 2020/21 season was the best season so far with Fergal achieving over 100 winners, no mean feat to achieve. The 2021/22 season is already on target to eclipse this figure – 200 winners in a season is the next target!
