Declan Lavery


Downpatrick, Down


0044 7923917108

Declan Lavery had very successful relationship with Brian Hamilton, and it was the Co. Down handler that provided him with his initial points winner, Hey R Fella, at Taylorstown in October 2011, having made his debut at Tyrella in March 2009. As well as partering many top open horses such as Warne, Maple Mons and Mr Bolt to success, Lavery has also guided expensive four-year-old's to victory including Lecale's Article at Largy, plus Loughanmore winners Lucky Pass and Bach De Clermont. More recently he has been associated with former rider-turned handler, Patrick Turley, with the pair successful with My Whirlwind, the subsequent £400,000 seller.
