An Eye to the Future 2016 saw the inaugural coolmore challenge programme whereby four existing young staff members were selected to take part in a two year rotational work experience and education programme to learn about every dimension of the business throughout coolmore in ireland, kentucky and australia. the next intake is in 2018, and ideally participants will have some work experience with coolmore prior to selection. anyone interested should contact aideen Roche at


The Classics The Oaks Stakes was first run on Friday, 14 May 1779 and was won by the Lord Derby-owned Bridget. Well over 200 years later, the best three-year-old fillies still gather at Epsom and in 2016 the first four home were all sired by Coolmore stallions. At the Curragh they went one better when Seventh Heaven led home a 1-2-3-4-5. In other classic news, Galileo ’s brilliant son The Gurkha ran away with the French 2,000 Guineas, Zoffany ’s son Knife Edge landed the German equivalent and Minding , ballydoyle and Alice Springs ran 1-2-3 in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket. Another classic season!

The best

of everything Coolmore has always understood the importance of providing the best available hay, feed, bedding and water for horses boarding on the farm. All hay fed on the farm is home grown on our limestone based land and goes through rigorous quality control analysis. Our water is sourced from many deep wells dotted around the farm to ensure it is of the purest standard and high in mineral content. And our horses are bedded on the best barley straw sourced either from our own or neighbouring farms. We also take great pride in the fact that the oats fed to all horses under our care are grown, harvested, cleaned, dried and stored under our careful management. In 2016 a major investment was made in building a brand new state of the art facility to clean, dry and store our home grown oats.

Only the best will do, both for our own, and for your mares and stock. And while we offer the best stallions in the business, boarding mares visiting non Coolmore stallions are also welcome.




The best

possible start Coolmore is situated in the heart of the Golden Vale on some of Ireland’s finest limestone land. Careful management ensures that the land continues to offer the necessary nutrients for optimal growth and health of thoroughbreds. A highly-professional and experienced staff combined with excellent facilities provide the best possible environment for raising thoroughbred racehorses. Amongst the 16 individual Group 1 winners in 2016 who were raised or spent their formative months at Coolmore were Racing Post Trophy winner Rivet , bred by Lester Piggott and partners . Other major players who board mares at Coolmore include the Niarchos Family , the Wertheimer brothers , the Jooste Family , Gestut Ammerland , Joseph Allen , bobby Flay , the Gunther family of Glennwood Farm , George Strawbridge , Teo Ah Khing , Mr Juergen Imm , Mrs Fitri Hay , Triermore Stud and Daylesford Stud . The people who board their mares at Coolmore know that their stock get the best possible start in life. Just look at their results!

RIVET (Fastnet Rock x Starship) Winner of the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy

A massive thank you to all the staff at Coolmore who have played such a huge part in the rearing of Rivet. We would also like to show our appreciation for the continued care of Starship, Jamm and their progeny. Thank you to you all.

In the spring, Minding , ballydoyle and Alice Springs made it a 1-2-3 for Galileo in the 1,000 Guineas. And so it continued throughout the season culminating in another clean sweep in the ‘Arc’. In the interim there was more Classic success for Minding , The Gurkha and Seventh Heaven , come autumn a host of top two-year-olds including Fillies’ Mile 1-2 Rhododendron and Hydrangea , a 1-2-3 in the Beresford and of course the mighty Churchill in the National Stakes and the Dewhurst. And Highland Reel rounded off the season in style in the Breeders’ Cup Turf. There’s not much left to say!

A leading first crop sire from the family of FOOTSTEPSINTHESAND




It’s an Australian thing. A seriously fast and precocious juvenile down under, Pride of Dubai was better at two than Fastnet Rock , Starspangledbanner and Choisir before him. He won the Group 1 blue Diamond Stakes over 6 furlongs and the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes over 7 - the first horse ever to do so. By Champion sire Street Cry , he’s out of a half-sister to the dam of Invincible Spirit and Kodiac . We expect him to make his mark. Fast. Pride Of Dubai


Speed Genes Invincible Spirit and his half-brother Kodiac are two of Europe’s most popular sires of 2-year-olds. Invincible Spirit failed to win a Group 1 until he was a 5-year-old while Kodiac never made the placings at that level. Their close relative Pride of Dubai , the fastest son of champion sire Street Cry, won two of Australia’s three Group 1’s for juveniles over six and seven furlongs. In fact he became the first horse in history to record the blue Diamond Stakes/Sires’ Produce double.
