Yearling deadline nears
1st Jun 2017
- Plus 10 Yearling Registration of £200 due by 30 June
- Breeders can win up to £2,000 in bonus prize money on the track
- More than 600 races expected to feature a £10,000 bonus each year
The Plus 10 Yearling Registration deadline is nearing, with just one month left for yearlings to be registered for the bonus scheme.
Plus 10 has paid out more than £8.95 million in additional prize money since the first bonus was made available in 2015.
Breeders and pinhookers of yearlings who wish for their horse to remain in Plus 10 must pay the Yearling Registration fee of £200 by 30 June 2017.
Plus 10 is a £6 million owner and breeder incentive scheme which pays £10,000/€12,500 bonuses on top of prize money across more than 600 two and three-year-old races in Britain and Ireland each year.
Breeders and pinhookers who pay the middle Yearling Registration fee will enjoy an advantage in the sales ring by offering a horse which can win significantly more prize money, and will receive a share of any bonus prize money won on the track.
Trainer, Amy Murphy, who recently had a Plus 10 success with a horse bought at Tattersalls Book Three Sale, said: “When purchasing horses at yearling sales, it is always a huge bonus to buy those which have been Plus 10 registered, the opportunity to vastly increase the prize money won on the racetrack is of huge benefit to owners. It’s also a great selling point when you are trying to sell yearlings onto potential owners.”
For breeders who pay both the Yearling and earlier Foal Registration fees, this guarantees a £2,000 bonus payment should their horse win a race featuring a Plus 10 bonus. Pinhookers who pay just the Yearling Registration fee will win £1,000 should their horse win a race featuring a Plus 10 bonus.
Breeders are advised that any horse paid up to the Yearling Registration stage will be flagged as Plus 10 on individual pedigree pages within sales catalogues.
To complete the Yearling Registration please fill in the form and return to Weatherbys along with payment.
