Not only is Ballylinch Stud steeped in the success of its exceptional stallions, we’re also a rich source of top-quality runners that have graduated from our sales consignment to racetrack success. We consign foals, yearlings, mares and horses-in-training through all the major European saleshouses.
Over the past 30 years, Ballylinch has sold well in excess of two hundred weanlings or yearlings which have realised over €100,000, including 5 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, Together Forever, Astaire and Sudirman, along with Oaks heroine Forever Together and Al Wukair, winner of the Prix Jacques le Marois.
