IRE Incentive

 

 

The IRE Incentive scheme is a new initiative from Horse Racing Ireland designed to stimulate and fortify Irish thoroughbred breeding, racing and Sales.

The scheme will award a Sales voucher of €10,000 to owners of Irish-bred winners of 150 selected races across the Irish Flat and National Hunt programmes in 2021. The owners of each eligible winner – those carrying the (IRE) suffix and Foal Levy compliant – will have until the end of the following year to spend their voucher on another Irish-bred thoroughbred at any Irish-based public auction thoroughbred Sale. 

The scheme began on Friday 26 March 2021 at Dundalk Racecourse. Scheme races will be two-year-old fillies’ maidens; two-year-old auction maidens and median auction races; three-year-old median auction maidens; and National Hunt auction races. 

The scheme is funded by Horse Racing Ireland and managed by Irish Thoroughbred Marketing, with promotional support from the Foal Levy. A list of the IRE Incentive races for 2021 and scheme terms and conditions are also available on this page.

Voucher winners will be informed of their victory in the congratulatory email all owners receive from HRI Ownership. They will then be asked to fill out the IRE Incentive claim form, also available on this page. The ITM team will be in touch to provide any further information required as to how and where vouchers can be spent.

In each race listed below the winning owner will receive a €10,000 IRE Incentive Sales voucher if the winning horse is Irish-bred.

This voucher can be redeemed against the purchase of an Irish-bred thoroughbred at any Irish-based public auction thoroughbred Sale. Subject to Terms and Conditions.

The below list is non-exhaustive and will be added to as the year progresses. Contact Irish Thoroughbred Marketing for further information: [email protected] / +353 (0) 45443060
