The ITM (Irish Thoroughbred Marketing)
Irish Stallion Trail will take place on Friday January 11 and Saturday January
12, 2019. Over 25 stallion farms will be participating in the Trail, which is
now in its fifth year. With farms all over Ireland opening their doors to both
industry figures and the general public, this represents an outstanding

help make Irish racing such a success.
Studs participating in the Trail in 2019 include Ballylinch, Castlehyde,
Coolmore, Derrinstown, Gilltown, Irish National Stud, Kildangan, Yeomanstown,
and many more. Some of the world’s greatest stallions of both the Flat and
National Hunt will be on display, including multiple champion Flat sire Galileo
(IRE), leading National Hunt sire Kalanisi (IRE), multiple Group 1 winner
Ribchester (IRE), and four-time Ascot Gold Cup hero Yeats (IRE).
In launching the ITM Irish Stallion Trail 2019, Alex Cairns of ITM, said: “Once
again the ITM Irish Stallion Trail is set to showcase the wealth of equine and
human talent we have here in Ireland. Our aim with the Trail is to engage both
those working in the racing industry and the general public. Our thanks go out
to the many stallion farms across the country that will be making time in their
busy schedules to help promote the world-class work they do every day.”
