Irish Wells on the move to Woodlands Stud

Sire of Renneti new to stallion ranks in County Galway

Irish Wells: a son of leading jumps source Poliglote
1 of 1

Woodlands Stud in County Galway has a new face in its stallion boxes in Irish Wells, who has made the move from Haras de la Croix Sonnet in France.

The 13-year-old son of Poliglote was a top-class performer for Francois Rohaut, winning back-to-back renewals of the Grand Prix de Deauville and finishing second to Dylan Thomas in the Prix Ganay.

Irish Wells has already made his mark as a jumps sire, notably with Grade 1-placed hurdler Renneti and useful handicap chaser Wells De Lune.

His sire Poliglote is a leading source of jumpers in France whose progeny include Don Poli, Hinterland, Spirit Son, Top Notch and Wonderful Charm.

Irish Wells will stand at a fee of €1,500 alongside Virtual, whose price is €1,000.

Breeder Martin Cullinane was a key adviser in the acquisition of Irish Wells and is reported by the stud to be sending his “ten best mares” to the stallion.
