The Irish National Stud today announced the class of 2022. This year’s class represents a diverse mix of thirty students from seven different countries.
The Thoroughbred Breeding Management Programme is a unique combination of practical training, classroom lectures, cultural immersion, personal and professional development which equips students with a first-hand and well-rounded understanding of the thoroughbred industry.
The class which was chosen from a large group of highly talented applicants will begin their residential training at the Co. Kildare stud farm in January, 2022.
‘Once again, the application process was well over subscribed which is testament to the quality of training that is provided on the programme. I look forward to welcoming the 30 students to the Irish National Stud in January’ Anne Channon, Education Development Manager
