THIS is Acclamation’s 17th season at Rathbarry Stud, his home since he was acquired for stud duties by the late Liam Cashman in 2003. He has always been supported by discerning breeders and that continues to this day.

The 2019 Return of Mares shows that some of the breeders who have supported him for the past two seasons (with apologies to the many leading breeders who didn’t make this short list) are HH Aga Khan Studs, Airlie Stud, Ballylinch Stud, Cheveley Park Stud, Juddmonte Farms, Lynch Bages, the Niarchos Family, Rabbah Bloodstock, Sunderland Holding and the Wertheimer brothers.
