IRISH EBF -Every year in Ireland, the participating stallion owners pay the equivalent of an average nomination fee for each of their stallions. These funds are then targeted at Flat and National Hunt races in Ireland that are judged to support the industry.
The Irish EBF board is made up of representatives from the major contributing farms and ably led by Chairman, John O’Connor, Managing Director of Ballylinch Stud. Working closely with Horse Racing Ireland, the Irish EBF Governors’ create a programme of Irish EBF sponsored races targeted to support the Irish Racing industry. Only the progeny of EBF registered stallions can enter these races and benefit from the extra prize money.
In total, Irish EBF have contributed nearly €50 million to Irish Prize-money since 1983, with a current annual investment now over €2.5 million making Irish Stallion Farms the largest sponsor of racing in Ireland.
