Without doubt 2022 has proved to be a vintage year for most equine activities. There has been some really awe inspiring racing with the first female jockey Hollie Doyle claiming a classic in France among many other brilliant performances from horses, jockeys and trainers alike. The World Equestrian Games for eventing, showjumping and dressage all threw up some great moments and also some big surprises. Who would have thought after being in such a strong position after the dressage at WEG, the British team would fold and finish out of the medals, despite an individual Brit. Yasmin Ingham gaining the individual gold medal? In showjumping, there were some equally vintage moments, for example when Thomas Gilles from Belgium became the youngest winner of the King George V Cup at Hickstead in July. Finally in dressage, some more ecstatic moments when it appeared that some of the younger riders were starting to dislodge some of the old stalwarts; look at Charlotte Fry becoming the individual gold medallist at WEG.

This review covers the top horse races in Europe, giving a blow by blow account of each of the races featured; together with some statistics of the top winning sires in Europe. We also cover the select yearling sales in Europe – The UK, Ireland and France, again with statistics of the top earners. Who would have thought with the current world economic crisis and a war in Europe, all the records were broken for the sales in aggregate, averages and medians?
