Racing In Ireland
Horse racing in Ireland is more than a sport. It is a national passion and a way of life.
The Irish have an innate understanding of horses that is grounded in centuries of tradition. Today, Irish horses, trainers, jockeys, and breeders are recognised as among the most accomplished on the planet and consistently excel on the world stage.
For example, in 2020 Irish-trained horses won Group One races on five continents, including the Derby, Melbourne Cup, and multiple Breeders’ Cup races. In the National Hunt sphere, records were smashed in 2021, with 23 of the 28 winners at the Cheltenham Festival 2021 trained in Ireland.
To own an Irish racehorse is to possess the very quintessence of the thoroughbred. Get in touch with ITM and we will take you to the heart of Ireland's most successful international sport.
Here in Ireland we are lucky to have everything you need for a world-class racing and breeding industry. We have the horses, the farms, the land, and the breeding stock, but really it is all about the people.Mick Halford, Trainer
