Goresbridge Bloodstock Sales

Situated in the heart of Ireland's horse breeding country on the banks of the river Barrow in county Kilkenny, Goresbridge has been run by the Donohoe family since it was established in 1968. Goresbridge Bloodstock Sales stage Ireland's only flat breeze-up sale – unraced two-year-olds which are ready to run - which has rapidly acquired an international reputation for producing quality racehorses. They also hold mixed thoroughbred sales in July and October.


Tattersalls Ireland

Tattersalls Ireland is renowned for selling top class Flat and particularly National Hunt horses, where it continues to lead the field. Their Derby Sale (held in June of each year) is the premier sale in the world for National Hunt three and four year olds, while the November National Hunt Sale provides the most comprehensive catalogue of National Hunt breeding stock, foals, yearlings and horses-in-training. The September Yearling Sale also consistently provides excellent value and success for flat-bred yearlings, and the rejuvenated November Yearling Sale also offers yearlings that possibly need extra time and are generally offered at an affordable price.
