EBF May nomination deadline change
Thu 29 Mar 2018
The deadline for nominating yearlings to the European Breeders Fund has been moved to 31st May. At a cost of $600, any yearling by a sire not registered to the EBF and standing outside of Europe can be made eligible to run in the EBF programme of races throughout Europe,which are worth €5million in additional prizemoney.
Kerry Murphy of the EBF explains: “We review our nominations process annually and, as the yearling sales landscape has changed over the years, we felt that it is now possible to move this deadline out to May 31st, giving breeders that intend to race their yearlings or those that are consigning them to a sale plenty of time to nominate. Those nominated at $600 by May 31st will be confirmed as EBF nominated on their page in the major yearling sales catalogues. This nomination stage is mostly applicable to breeders using American or Japanese stallions that are not registered to the EBF. Thanks to increasing support, the list of internationally registered stallions has grown significantly and we advise breeders to check with us to see if their yearling does need nominating”.
Nominations can be made online via the ebfstallions.com website or by contacting the EBF office.
