If you have ever dreamed of having your colours carried to victory or have wanted to get involved in breeding a racehorse, the Irish National Stud’s Breeding and Racing Club is for you!

The club is unique in that it offers members an opportunity to see the whole cycle of the thoroughbred industry, from the breeding shed to the sales ring with the progeny of our two broodmares and onto the racecourse.

The cost of membership is an all-inclusive €2,000 per year and the club is limited to 50 members. We currently have two horses in training in the shape of Lethal Promise, an exciting Invincible Spirit two year old and Divine Approach, a three year old Dawn Approach, half-sister to Red Cadeaux.

Along with the two racehorses in training, the club also take a share of two young foals. Members are offered an insight to their progress from foaling right up to their sales prep and their sale at Goffs November Foal Sales on behalf of the club.

In addition to the shares in the horses, members will also enjoy annual membership to the Irish National Stud & Gardens, race day tickets, owners’ badges, along with frequent days out to stable yards, stud farms and of course race meetings!
