    Ballylinch Stud


    A morning on the gallops at Ballylinch

    Ballylinch Stud has a long history of not just breeding elite racehorses, but also racing them. We have horses in training with leading trainers across Ireland, Britain, France and Australia. The green and orange silks saw continued success in 2023, Self Belief won the Gr.3 Meld Stakes, but it was the horses owned in partnership that recorded the most significant wins. Ballylinch co-owned two of the top 2yos of the season with Iberian taking the Gr.2 Champagne Stakes, while Shuwari won the Star Stakes enroute to second in the Gr.1 Fillies’ Mile.  Older horses  Bay Bridge, Surf Dancer and Place du Carrousel all added Group victories to their resumes.


    In keeping with our excellent record of producing young horses, we also pre-train for some of the world’s most successful breeders and trainers.  Our facilities include an all-weather seven furlong uphill gallop, an all-weather two furlong flat circular gallop, acres of uphill grass gallops, and miles of woodland trails. Combined with our experienced staff, private laboratory and resident vet we are in a perfect position to give our equine residents the best possible start to their racing careers.
