The Irish EBF Ballyhane Stakes

THE RICHEST RACE EVER RAN AT NAAS! We are delighted to host the inaugural Irish EBF Ballyhane Stakes. The exciting €200,000 two-year-old median sires race will take place here at Naas Racecourse on Bank Holiday Monday, August 23rd. The race has attracted a record high entry of 563 horses from Ireland, Britain and one from America.

The race will be run over a distance of 6f. It will be open to two-year-olds by a sire whose median price is not more than €75,000, with allowances for sires whose median price is €50,000 or €25,000 or less.

In consultation with the race sponsors, Irish EBF and Ballyhane Stud, HRI has committed to examine increasing the €200,000 prize fund and to investigate the staging of a consolation race on the same day for those horses who do not make the final field in the feature race. This would give owners and trainers with entries an additional opportunity to avail of valuable prize money.

In the light of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, the first forfeit stage will be deferred from April 22nd to an unconfirmed later date that will be announced when there is a clearer indication of the resumption of racing and dates for the breeze-up sales.
