The 2018 ITM Irish Stallion Trail was declared a tremendous success after large crowds turned out on Friday January 12 and Saturday January 13, visiting a record 29 stud farms, many of whom experienced increased numbers on the 2017 high of over 2,000
visitors, with a particular rise in the number of breeders in attendance.
Gerry Childs is a member of the British-based syndicate Elite Racing Club, who enjoyed unbelievable success with their homebred mare Marsha (IRE) this year, having bred her using an Irish stallion. Gerry commented: “This is my third visit to
Ireland for the ITM Irish Stallion Trail. I adore seeing the stars of the past and how they are faring as stallions. Highlights have been Coolmore Stud, seeing Kalanisi (IRE) at Boardsmill Stud and meeting the wonderful people here.”
Provisional dates for the 2019 ITM Irish Stallion Trail are the 11th and 12
th of January, which will be confirmed later in the year.
