Buying In Ireland
Irish thoroughbred sales are globally recognised as a leading source of quality bloodstock. As a nation steeped in the tradition of breeding and trading horses, Ireland offers a vast selection of quality thoroughbreds to suit all requirements and budgets.
There are three bloodstock sales companies in Ireland: Goffs, Goresbridge, and Tattersalls Ireland. When buying from Irish sales, purchasers are assured a stamp of quality that has been earned through generations of success and integrity. Ireland's sales companies have sold some of the finest racehorses ever to have lived and continue to produce the goods year on year, on the flat and over jumps. Whether you are interested in foals, yearlings, breeze-up horses, store horses, horses-in-training, breeding stock, or stallions, you can find the best of the best in Ireland.
Irish thoroughbreds are exported to over 30 countries each year and continually prove their quality in some of the world's most prestigious races. From Britain to France, the US to Australia, Hong Kong to Dubai, and everywhere in between, Irish thoroughbreds are a proven source of success.
