ITM Irish Stallion Trail returns in 2022
We encourage as many people as possible to get the dates in the diary and support a hugely valuable Irish industry.Alex Cairns, ITM
The Irish Thoroughbred Marketing (ITM) Irish Stallion Trail will take place on Friday January 14 and Saturday January 15, 2022. Over 20 stallion farms are set to participate in the Trail, which is now in its eighth year. Having gone virtual in 2021, the Trail returns to its usual format in January 2022 and will offer breeders, racing professionals, and racing fans the opportunity to view some of the world’s leading Flat and National Hunt stallions at Ireland’s outstanding thoroughbred breeding facilities.
In announcing the dates for the ITM Irish Stallion Trail 2022, Alex Cairns of ITM, said: “It is great to have the ITM Irish Stallion Trail back in its usual format for 2022. Irish-bred horses have again made their presence felt in the world’s most competitive races in 2021 and much of this success is down to Ireland’s top-class stallions and the farms that they call home. We encourage as many people as possible to get the dates in the diary and support a hugely valuable Irish industry.”
The ITM Irish Stallion Trail is a completely free event. Visitors are simply asked to register which studs they intend to visit via the ITM website. Registrations will open in mid-November 2021. Visitors are then free to visit their chosen studs at the time of their choosing within the studs' advertised opening hours. Please note that due to demand it is mandatory to register for a specific date and time slot in order to visit Coolmore Stud.
The dates and format of the Trail may still be subject to change. For further information, visit www.itm.ie/Breeding/ITM-Irish-Stallion-Trail. Further studs wishing to participate in the ITM Irish Stallion Trail 2022 can contact Alex Cairns at [email protected] or +353(0)87 791 5690.
