The Irish National Stud are delighted to announce Phoenix of Spain is proving as precocious in the breeding shed as he did on the racecourse with his first 5 mares scanned in foal. Syndicate support for The Irish 2000 Guineas winner is immense and includes some of Europe and America’s leading breeders.
Gary Swift Director Of Sales at The Irish National Stud “We are most encouraged by the reaction from British and Irish breeders. His first book of mares very much reflects both how athletically talented he was and how physically imposing he is, with an exceptional calibre of mare visiting him in 2020”.
