Castlefield's Alkumait, sponsor of Curragh juvenile race Saturday | The Curragh

As part of the IRE Incentive Scheme, Curragh hosts the first juvenile race of the Irish racing season Saturday. The five-furlong test is sponsored by Castlefield Stud on behalf of G2 Mill Reef S. winner Alkumait (GB) (Showcasing {GB}–Suelita {GB}, by Dutch Art {GB}), who stands at the nursery for €5,000.

Highlighting the sponsorship, the connections of the first season sire are offering a €100,000 bonus to the connections of the first black-type winner from the stallion's first crop of 2-year-olds.

”We have long-term ambitions, and we are going to be there to support breeders in the ring and on the racetrack,” said Jack Tuohy, who was behind the deal. “This is evident at the Curragh on Saturday where we are sponsoring the opening 2-year-old maiden of the year we are putting the foundations in place to make Alkumait a long-term success.”
