In the Irish Draught stallion selections, 14 stallions were presented for inspection and four achieved Class 1 status. In addition, there was a Bronze awarded to Columcille Diamond Boy
Commenting on the 2019 inspections, Alison Corbally, HSI Director of Breeding and Programmes, stated: “There were some interesting bloodlines in the Irish Draught stallions that came forward, and it was pleasing that Castlegar Cool Grove who is from the Prince Henry RID 5 threatened sire line met the criteria for Class 1.”
