Welcome to Commonstown Stables

Many Champions have come through the ranks here and Jessica alongside Emma, Kate and her team continue to source, develop and nurture Grade 1 and Group 1 winning horses for owners great and small.

Attention to detail, committed and accessible at all times.  This is a yard with history made and much more to come. 

I hope this site will give you a taste of all the goes on in the world of Commonstown Stables, one of Ireland’s most successful dual-purpose training operations and hopefully give you the opportunity to learn more about our team and more importantly the horses we are lucky enough to train.

With over 80 horses in training, we are all kept on our toes throughout all 12-months of the year, and with pictures and news updates we hope to be able to keep you in tune with what is happening behind the scenes.

Jessica Harrington 

Moone’s Queen Of Cheltenham

As one of Ireland’s leading three day event riders Jessica represented her country at the highest level including the Olympics. A training licence was taken out in 1989 and alongside her late husband Johnny Harrington she quickly established herself as a leading force in Irish National Hunt Racing.

Success at the Galway Festival in 1994 with Oh So Grumpy was a kick start to her now renowned reputation for handling quality jumps horses. No one will forget Moscow Flyer, a horse of a lifetime for all involved but Space Trucker’s victory in the Grand Annual in 1999 laid the way for the likes of “Moscow”, Spirit Leader, Cork All Star, Boston’s Angel, Jezki and then the three most recent heroes of Cheltenham 2017 Sizing John, Supasundae & Rock The World.

Ownership with Jessica Harrington Racing

Racehorse Ownership in Ireland is a unique experience that gets each owner to the heart of the sport.

From those early mornings on the gallops watching your own horse work, to the intense build up to the race in the parade ring
followed by those heart stopping moments of cheering on your charge.

There really is nothing like it and it is now an experience open to everyone.
