Punters watch a race at Down Royal Racecourse, in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. About 10,000 racehorses travel between Britain and Ireland each year. The proximity and ease of access to the home of so many of the industry's major events plays a central role in Ireland's successful track record, Horse Racing Ireland say.

Of the 28 winners at March's showpiece Cheltenham festival, a record 19 were Irish-trained, including Gold Cup victor Sizing John. REUTERS/Clodagh Kilcoyne

A horse is sprayed with water to cool down after racing at Down Royal Racecourse, in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. Ireland, France and Britain - three of Europe's top horse racing locations - currently have an agreement that predates EU law allowing a horse registered in one country to move freely in all without the need for veterinary examination or inspection. That includes the border between the Irish Republic, an EU member, and Northern Ireland, a British province, where nine out of 10 horses that compete are trained in the republic.
