Racehorse trainer & Batterstown native, Thomas Coyle took out his own training license in 2015, after working as assistant trainer to Eddie Cawley for over 10 years.
With over 16 newly built boxes in Batterstown, there’s certainly not many around with the same understanding of Irish point to point racing than Thomas Coyle.
It must be mentioned, Thomas also has a passion for Hurling (Blackhall Gaels) and is known to come on for the run himself at the start of every season.
Thomas was one of the first regulars on the champ.ie national hunt podcast and will also feature this season in our #8PointstoPlay Saturday tipping challenge.
