Jim and Jackie Bolger's dual Group 1 winner Mac Swiney (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}) will stand at the Irish National Stud in 2024 for a fee of €8,000.

Mac Swiney played his part in a memorable 2021 season for the trainer/breeder when beating his stable-mate, the 2,000 Guineas winner Poetic Flare (Ire) to land a Classic of his own in the Irish 2,000 Guineas. A three-time winner as a juvenile, he had ended his debut season with victory in the G1 Vertem Futurity having also landed the G2 Beresford S.

Mac Swiney's dam Halle Na Saoire (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}) is a full-sister to the Group 2 winner Light Heavy (Ire).

Cathal Beale, chief executive officer of the Irish National Stud, said,”Mac Swiney is a Group 1-winning two-year-old, a Group 1 and Classic-winning three-year-old from a deep black-type family. He is a powerful, correct horse with an incredible walk and, at €8,000, he will stand at an exceptional price for a horse of his quality.”
