Foran Equine/Irish EBF Auction Series 2018The Foran Equine/Irish EBF Auction Series is worth €615,000 this year, it will run from May to October, with 23 races and a €120,000 final in Naas. It was designed to create wide scale opportunities for horses purchased at public auction as a yearling or a two-year-old for €72,000 or less, with allowances for fillies and horses purchased at a lower auction price. The long-term aim is to establish the series as a target for purchasers of yearlings and two-year-olds and trainers can use this to tip the scales in their favour and encourage new owners to get involved. It’s an easier proposition to get people involved with modestly priced horses with a specific target to aim for. Each race is also Plus 10 registered, whereby qualified winners will be eligible for a bonus of €12,500 under the Plus 10 Scheme.Irish EBF Auction Hurdle Series14 maiden and novice hurdle races from September 2018 until April 2019, each worth a minimum of €20,000, with a final in April worth €75,000. Entry into the valuable final will be limited to horses which have run in one of the previous races in the series. The conditions will specify that all horses must be by an EBF registered stallion and bought as an unraced three or four year old at a recognised NH Store stale for €45,000 or less, with weight allowances depending on purchase price. In addition each race is also included in the Weatherbys/ITBA €5,000 Fillies Bonus Scheme, this means a NH filly, who is registered in the scheme, and wins a series race can not only take home at least €12,500 in prize-money but the connections could also scoop an additional €5,000.Irish EBF Summer National Hunt Handicap SeriesThere will be a series of 20 middle range handicaps (with rating caps of 109 or 116), comprising 14 hurdles and six chases, which will be run for an increased prize money value of €15,000 during the summer period. This series has been made possible thanks to the support of the Irish EBF including an enhanced sponsorship contribution.
