IRE Incentive Scheme Paying Dividends


Leopardstown maiden winner Homeless Songs

Horse Racing Ireland's IRE Incentive Scheme has awarded over 35 sales vouchers, each worth €10,000, to 31 individual owners to date. Winner number 36 in the new scheme came in Thursday's Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies' Maiden at Leopardstown, won by the Dermot Weld-trained Homeless Songs (Ire) (Frankel {GB}), a homebred for Moyglare Stud.

The IRE Incentive Scheme awards an Irish sales voucher in the amount of €10,000 to owners of Irish-bred winners of selected races on the Flat and National Hunt programmes in 2021. The owners of each eligible winner–horses that carry the (Ire) suffiz and are Foal Levy compliant–may redeem their vouchers on Irish-breds at Irish sales through the end of the following year.

“The IRE Incentive rewards and encourages investment in Irish

bloodstock,” commented Irish Thoroughbred Marketing CEO Charles O'Neill. “Irish-breds continually prove their quality in the world's most competitive racing nations. We are delighted to be able to draw the spotlight onto Irish thoroughbreds and help promote investment in one of Ireland's finest global exports. With the IRE Incentive Scheme, it pays to buy Irish.”
