ITM Irish Stallion Trail

The ITM Irish Stallion Trail is an annual showcase for the Irish thoroughbred breeding industry, with stallion farms across Ireland opening their doors to breeders, racing professionals, and racing fans on two days in January of each year.

It is intended that the ITM Irish Stallion Trail 2021 will take place on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 January 2021, with registrations opening in October 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates and format of the Trail may be subject to change.

Over 25 stallion farms participate in the Trail, which has been running for six years. Studs participating in the Trail in 2020 included Ballylinch, Boardsmill, Castlehyde, Coolmore, Derrinstown, Gilltown, Irish National Stud, Kildangan, Rathasker, Rathbarry & Glenview Studs, Yeomanstown, and many more. Some of the world’s greatest stallions of both the Flat and National Hunt were on display, including multiple champion Flat sire Galileo (IRE), leading National Hunt sire Kalanisi (IRE), multiple Group 1 sire Dark Angel (IRE), and four-time Ascot Gold Cup hero Yeats (IRE). There was also an exciting group of new stallions to be viewed, including Royal Ascot hero Blue Point (IRE), Classic winner Phoenix Of Spain (IRE), and the globe-trotting Joshua Tree (IRE).
