In addition to the prize money allocation to the owner, the winning breeder will receive a free nomination for the 2021 season to the named stallion, beginning with the “Free Eagle” Irish EBF Fillies Maiden at Naas this Saturday 20th June. The series will move on to The Curragh on 26th June, Navan on 3rd July and conclude at Leopardstown on 23rd July with a nomination to Phoenix of Spain, National Defense and Decorated Knight up for grabs.
INS CEO Cathal Beale commented “The INS are delighted to partner with the Irish EBF to create a Summer Series of 2yo fillies’ maidens which will benefit a wide cross section of the industry.”
Irish EBF Chairman John O’Connor commented “The Irish EBF board would like to thank the Irish National Stud for co-sponsoring with us at this crucial time. We are delighted to see stallion farms increasing their sponsorship to help the bloodstock industry at this difficult time and we would encourage other stallion farms and commercial sponsors to follow suit.”
