International Owners

WELCOME TO IRELAND

Look to ireland

Owning and racing in Ireland combines a long tradition of excellent horsemanship with a nation whose passion and understanding of the thoroughbred racehorse is recognized the world over.


Ireland is the largest producer of thoroughbreds in Europe and our breeders have a well-earned reputation for producing tough, durable and sound horses that go on to perform at the highest international level.


Owners in Ireland enjoy some of the best prizemoney in Europe whilst competing in a top-class race programme. Irish trainers also successfully compete on a world stage. This not only gives owners an opportunity to attend some of the biggest race meetings in Europe and beyond it also gives owners the opportunity to stamp their stock with Irish and International form before returning to race or breed on home turf.


Join the hundreds of International Owners who have chosen Ireland as the place to own and race their horses. We would be delighted to welcome you to Ireland and look forward to creating a bespoke itinerary for your visit. Click here to register or contact the ownership team.
