RATHBARRY Stud has been in the Cashman family for generations and their National Hunt stallions stand at Glenview Stud. The influence of the late boss Liam Cashman is still felt by breeders who have supported their stallions year in, year out and the present roster comprises five stallions.

In alphabetical order we start with Blue Bresil (Smadoun) who is a newcomer to the stud this year. He is already a proven sire of Grade 1 winners and his stock are in demand when they come up for sale, realising up to €280,000 last year. He is a complete outcross for Sadler’s Wells line mare.
