First Racing Post Yearling Bonus rolls over

FIVE two-year-olds eligible for the first £10,000 Racing Post Yearling Bonus payout missed the target in the first juvenile race in Britain and Ireland this year, the Tally Ho Stud European Breeders' Fund Maiden at the Curragh today.

Coolmore fielded two Yearling Bonus hopefuls, Emperor Hadrian and Pirateer, Tom Dascombe brought Julius Geezer over from Britain, Paul Deegan saddled Future Impact and Kevin Prendergast fielded Madeira Man.

But their hopes of collecting a Racing Post Yearling Bonus cheque on this occasion - which would have almost doubled the winner's prize money - were thwarted by High Award, who ran on strongly to deny runner-up Suntan and third-placed Clondinnery.

High Award, a daughter of Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Tarascon bred by Liz Stack and Jane Rowlinson, is trained by Tommy Stack and owned by Coolmore.

He became the first winner sired by freshman Holy Roman Emperor.

The £10,000 RacingPost Yearling Bonus for today's maiden will be rolled over and attached to another maiden race in Ireland later in the season.
