The IHRA are overwhelmed at the response from owners and trainers to the announcement of the inaugural Juvenile Stakes Series for both two- and three-year olds and finally creating a grand circuit in its path. Twenty-eight two-year olds and twenty-six three-year olds have been nominated and represent many stables and well-known stakeholders from both sides of the Irish Sea.
The IHRA are delighted to announce that the elimination races have all been confirmed and we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Darren Owen of the BHRC as well as the Eric Witherspoon of Tir Prince and Craig Stevenson of York for facilitating the two UK based eliminations.

Juvenile Stakes Finals
The IHRA has already informed both the BHRC and their promoters that we would like to call a joint meeting to discuss the 2021 juvenile stakes series. A proposal has been made for each governing body (IHRA & BHRC) to host the same number of eliminations in 2021 with a rotating series final on an annual basis. The main objective will aim to create a Grand circuit for all of the stakes races for the 2021 season. We look forward to discussing this in full, before the end of the 2020 season and a full update will be given in due course.
The full list of nominated horses can be seen below. Any horse not entered in the series may be supplemented in for €500 plus the original €700 for the stake’s payments.
