Power In The Blood  

1 x 52’ 


When an Irish thoroughbred horse comes into the world there is a silent expectation, a sense of hope that this horse ‘will be the one’. The Irish thoroughbred horse has a long and distinguished history that can be traced back 25 generations to the 18th century.

In Power in the Blood, Ella McSweeney examines what makes Irish thoroughbreds such consistent winners. It looks under the skin of the equine athlete, tracing the roots of what has become a global business. Top breeders, trainers, jockeys and scientists all try to find answers to the age old questions: what makes a champion? And can you really predict a winner?
