ITM Irish Stallion Trail
The ITM Irish Stallion Trail is a great opportunity to view many of the world’s leading stallions as Ireland’s top Flat & National Hunt Stud farms open their doors over two days. The third running of the ITM Irish Stallion Trail will take place on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th January 2017. The trail coincides with a fantastic weekends racing where visitors can attend Goffs Thyestes Handicap Chase at Gowran Park on Thursday 26th January and BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown on Sunday 29th January. Over 20 stud farms will open their doors just before the official opening of the traditional covering season offering breeders the opportunity to see some of the best stallions in the world
Irish stallions are regarded as having some of the best bloodlines in the world and their progeny continually prove themselves at the highest level in all corners of the globe. The quality of stallions available in Ireland is truly remarkable and their success is no coincidence with Galileo (IRE), Sea The Stars (IRE) and Shamardal (USA) three of the leading sires of Europe.
