2021 RED MILLS Irish EBF Auction Hurdle Series Final
This year’s RED MILLS Irish EBF Auction Series Final will take place at the Punchestown Festival on Gold Cup Day Wednesday April 28th. To enter the €75,000 final, horses must have run in one of the thirteen qualifiers and have not won a listed race or a Grade 1, 2 or 3 race..
This is the third year of the series, which commenced at Ballinrobe Racecourse last August. The series was designed to create opportunities for horses bought for €45,000/€30,000 or less at store sales in Ireland and the UK, thereby, giving owners and trainers an opportunity to claim some of the €355,000 prize-money on offer.
The conditions for the qualifying races specify that all horses must be by an EBF registered stallion and bought as an unraced three or four-year-old at a recognised National Hunt Store sale for €45,000/ €30,000 or less, with weight allowances depending on purchase price. In addition, the €5,000 Weatherbys/ITBA NH Fillies Bonus Scheme is in place for all races in the series.
Entries for the €75,000 Final at Punchestown Wednesday April 28th will close by noon Thursday April 22nd. See the below list of qualified horses which have already run in a qualifying race and meet the race conditions.
