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.
The ITM Irish Stallion Trail 2020 took place on Friday January 10 and Saturday January 11 2020. Dates for the ITM Irish Stallion Trail 2021 will be announced later this year.
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).
