Investing

Many of the world's leading breeders have a base in Ireland. To quote the legendary Irish trainer Vincent O’Brien –

“There is no doubt that the soil on our good studs is first class, probably the best in the world for producing bloodstock”.

Ireland is the premier country in which to invest in a thoroughbred enterprise for many reasons. There is a wealth of history and tradition attached to the land, racing yards and studs; most of the top European stallions stand here; the climate and land are very favourable to the raising and training of thoroughbred racehorses; there are world class veterinarians, farriers, feed companies, etc. and a skilled workforce of passionate horse-people. All of this combines to make Ireland an ideal location in which to raise tough, sound and athletic thoroughbreds.

It is no surprise then that Ireland is a base for many of the world’s leading bloodstock operations – Coolmore Stud, Darley, Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum’s Derrinstown Stud, Prince Khalid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms, HH The Aga Khan’s Studs, The Haefner Family’s Moyglare Farm, etc.

This has contributed to Ireland becoming a nation that breeds and trains world champion racehorses, such as SEA THE STARS (IRE), NEW APPROACH (IRE) and DAWN APPROACH (IRE), and which is now the largest producer of foals in Europe and the fourth largest in the world.

ITM can assist you in developing your own bloodstock enterprise in Ireland, to follow in the footsteps of the world’s most successful breeding operations, so you too can reap the benefits of owning some of the best land in the world to produce racehorses.
