BREEDERS, racing professionals and members of the public turned out in record numbers for the ITM Irish Stallion Trail 2020, which took place last weekend.

This was the sixth edition of the ITM Irish Stallion Trail and a total of 30 farms opened their doors for the two-day event. Reports indicated that it was the most successful Trail yet, with a notable rise in attendance and extensive media coverage. There were over 2,700 registrations through the ITM website for the various farms.

Alex Cairns of ITM said: “The ITM Irish Stallion Trail has become an annual highlight for both breeders and racing fans. The 30 farms involved put in a huge amount of work to promote the event and showcase the world-leading Irish stallion roster. At the same time, the Trail serves to offer racing fans behind the scenes access and provide significant public outreach for the racing industry in general.

“ITM would like to thank all breeders, racing professionals, media, and fans who joined the ITM Irish Stallion Trail in 2020. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to the farms that so generously opened their doors and wish them every success for the 2020 covering season.”
