Ballylinch Stud is renowned as a rich source of top-quality runners, notably the fourteen top level winners that have graduated from our sales consignment to racetrack success. We consign foals, yearlings, mares and horses-in-training through all the major European sales houses.
Over the past 30 years, we have sold in excess of two hundred weanlings or yearlings which have realised over €100,000, including 6 millionaire yearlings. Ballylinch also sold the most expensive yearling fillies in Europe in 2018 and 2019, for €3,200,000 and €3,000,000 respectively. Notable graduates of the Ballylinch sales consignment include 2yo Group 1 winners Belardo, Chriselliam, Aunt Pearl, Together Forever, Astaire and Sudirman, along with Oaks heroine Forever Together and Al Wukair, winner of the Prix Jacques le Marois.
The sales highlight of 2022 was our homebred filly by Kingman out of Traffic Jam selling for 1,050,000gns at Tattersalls Book 1 just days after her half-sister Place du Carrousel scored a Group 1 victory. Further Group 1 success was achieved by Saffron Beach and Bayside Boy, while Jumby won the Gr.2 Hungerford Stakes, and these were only a few of the over 120 races won by Ballylinch graduates in 2022 alone.
