YESTERDAY was a big day in the life of the 2021 students on the Irish National Stud Thoroughbred Management Course. Last evening this year’s class graduated, and this will be covered next week in the paper.

A few hours before that ceremony took place, the students on the corresponding course in Newmarket, at their National Stud, had a similar experience. Congratulations to all of these young men and women, many of whom will surely become future leaders of the industry if past form is anything to go by.
