Irish Champions Weekend

Irish Champions Weekend
8 September 2014 | Margaret Wilson


Irish Champions Weekend invites the world to two of our centres of racing excellence, and allows them to take their chance against the best this country has to offer.

This coming weekend, promises to be a show-casing of irish and international racing talent at Irish Champions Weekend. With the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown on Saturday and the Palmerstown House Estate, Irish St. Ledger at the Curragh on Sunday, its sounds like an exciting weekend.

21 years ago Dermot Weld flew Vintage Crops 17,000 miles to win the Melbourne Cup. Since then the Irish have become known as international classic race winners. Now we are inviting the world to our centres of racing excellence, to take their chance against the best the country has to offer.

It is a marvel, how this relatively small country, is the top producer of thoroughbreds in Europe. Not only that, the horses produced here consistently sell, train and race in the top echelons of thoroughbred horse racing internationally. When foreigners visit and ask how it is done, they’re told it’s in the blood and the limestone rich soil of the Curragh plains.

Limestone soil is traditionally credited with giving horses good bone. Irish horses were seen as progressive juveniles that were strong and sound. This type of horse could withstand hard training and racing. The reputation for producing sound, strong juvenile horses continues in Ireland today.

Foran Equine’s Cal-Gro is designed to supplement and continue this tradition, by providing the bone building nutrients required by mares, foals and yearlings to ensure optimum bone growth in young horses. Cal-Gro provides Calcium and Phosphorus in the ideal balanced 2:1 ratio, along with other essential minerals and the growth limiting amino acid, Lysine. This carefully selected blend of nutrients is formulated to help bone development, meeting the needs of these high class horses, with limitless athletic potential.
