    What a racehorse he was, but it’s for his feats as a stallion that Sadler’s Wells remains best known.

    Bred in the USA, Sadler’s Wells raced in Europe and landed Classic success in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, with further Group One glory in the Eclipse at Sandown and the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown. Sadler’s Wells also finished second in the Prix du Jockey Club and the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

    Sadler’s Wells died peacefully at the age of 30 at Coolmore Stud in 2011. His influence on the breed is pronounced, primarily through his outstanding stallion sons Montjeu and most notably Galileo, arguably the greatest of all time.

    Sadler’s Wells was the leading stallion in Great Britain and Ireland 14 times – then a record – including 13 titles in a row.

    In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
