British European Breeders’ Fund to contribute over £1.1m in prize money to Flat racing in 2014

Sun 30 Mar 2014

The British European Breeders’ Fund (BEBF) will contribute £1.125m to prize money in Britain in 2014, with over 550 Flat races around the country to receive BEBF funding throughout the year.

In a change of policy from recent years, a larger proportion of the BEBF’s support will be directed to conditions races, fillies’ handicaps and Listed races. Previously, the bulk of BEBF funding has been directed to maiden races, but additional support will now be targeted at other race types. Full Story
