The INS offers a new mare syndicate annually. Each year the INS will purchase a portfolio of quality mares during the Breeding Stock Sales both locally and internationally and offer this portfolio for syndication.

Over a five year cycle, those mares will be covered and resultant foals will be entered at the most suitable sales. The syndicate mares are then turned over and resold with the intention that progeny will have produced updates to the mare’s pedigree following success on the track.


blankTrends in the bloodstock market are showing that now, more than ever, there is a greater demand for quality in pedigree and physical stock. To meet this demand, the INS Mares Syndicates focus will be on the acquisition of premium mares, with strong bloodlines and mated to commercial, high class and proven stallions. Our mares and young stock will live at the INS which allows for continued monitoring of growth and progress by our team to the highest standards of equine welfare. This ensures that stock on offer at sales are in peak physical health and condition for prospective buyers. Through the syndication method members will experience the thrill and joys of selling, with quality stock represented via INS consignment at the major sales events for relatively small investment.

The INS is in a unique position to offer syndicate members benefits in addition to the shares in the bloodstock Our syndicates include annual membership to the Irish National Stud & Gardens and members can view their stock and our stallions in person throughout the season. Situated in the heart of the racing and breeding industry in Co. Kildare, the INS offers a social calendar to syndicate members with excursions to stud farms and stable yards, as well as hosting educational events as part of our ethos of innovation and learning.
