Right after the Coolmore obsession with horses comes the Coolmore obsession with the land they’re raised on. That’s why Coolmore is here, in the heart of the Golden Vale, on some of the finest land in Ireland.
The Magnier family have been raising horses since the mid 19th century, and this is Coolmore’s headquarters established by John Magnier, Robert Sangster and the legendary figure of M.V. O’Brien, rated, and not by us, as the greatest trainer in Ireland and England of the 20th century.
Around here, people and horses combine to make something enduring. History.
In 2004, Sadler’s Wells, the world’s leading sire with 74 Group 1 winners became Champion Sire for a remarkable 14th time, smashing Highflyer’s record which was set way back in 1798. But Sadler’s Wells is just one of the many reasons why this farm, in Tipperary, is known as the Home of Champions. Reigning Champion Sire Galileo, proven Group 1 sires like Danehill Dancer, Holy Roman Emperor, Mastercraftsman, Henrythenavigator, High Chaparral, Peintre Celebre and Rock of Gibraltar and exciting young sires like Camelot, Declaration Of War, Excelebration and Rip Van Winkle are others.
