Welcome To Lafferty Racing!

PAUL Lafferty runs a Group 1 winning yard at the magnificent Summerveld Training Centre in KwaZulu-Natal  and, during the 2013/2014 racing season, trained Harry’s Son to G1 success and official title of Equus Champion two-year-old colt in the process.

Lafferty Racing’s intention is to campaign horses successfully locally and internationally. The aim is to establish our stable around solid foundations incorporating communication, trust, interaction and enjoyment for the client.

Following sustained growth and success, the stable is establishing a satellite operation in Dubai to race at the Dubai International Carnival from 2016.

The operation is built around solid fiscal  principals and transparent interaction with all the major players in racing.

Seasoned experience and a good eye

Paul travels horses all round South Africa, having won graded races in all four major provinces. He is also the South African representative for Magic Millions and annually attends all of the sales company’s principal auctions in Australia.

It goes without saying that he is in attendance at all important sales in South Africa, and his consistent success during a training career that spans a quarter of a century, is testament to both his eye and training prowess.

Not afraid to travel horses around South Africa in search of the best opportunities, he strongly believes that placing horses in the right races is a key component of running a successful yard.

Paul is supported by an experienced and dedicated training and administrative team.
