The Irish National Stud Breeding and Racing Club were at the races on Saturday having first enjoyed a viewing of their two foals by Big Bad Bob. The club have a filly and a colt and it was the first time for some of the members to have seen their colt since he was foaled in April.
The members were delighted with their stock as the two are developing very well. After enjoying a spot of lunch at the Japanese Gardens Restaurant, the club went racing at the Curragh for the Irish 2000 Guineas. The weather was stunning and a great day of racing was enjoyed by all.
As well as having the two Big Bad Bob foals, the club also has a two year old Invincible Spirit filly in training with Willie McCreery. This was the fourth day out the club has had so far. Other days out have included viewing the stallions at the INS followed by racing at Naas, a visit to Rathbride Stables to watch their filly work on the Fox Covert Gallops and a visit to the Stewards Room at Leopardstown followed by racing.
The club have another day out soon when they are visiting the historical Coolmore Stud in Fethard.
Upcoming events in their calendar include Galway Plate Day in July, Champions Day at Leopardstown as well as days out to Goffs to sell their foals later in the year.
The club is a gateway to ownership for the members and sets about telling the story of the cycle of the breeding and racing industry in an entertaining and enjoyable fashion.
There are still memberships available and interested parties should contact Ciarán De Barra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
