Wexford People - - SPORT -

THE I.T.M. (Ir­ish Thor­ough­bred Mar­ket­ing) Ir­ish Stal­lion Trail will take place on Fri­day, Jan­uary 11, and Saturday, Jan­uary 12.

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 op­por­tu­nity to go be­hind the scenes and meet some of the equine su­per­stars that 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 I.T.M. Ir­ish Stal­lion Trail 2019, Alex Cairns of I.T.M. said: ‘Once again the I.T.M. 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.’
