Yearling nominations break 1,000 barrier

NOMINATIONS to the Racing Post Yearling Bonus surpassed the 1,000 mark on Friday despite the deadline to all yearling sales excluding the DBS St Leger and St Leger Festival Sales still being 12 days away.

With the majority of entries to the DBS St Leger Sale and St Leger Festival Sale nominated to the scheme, the target of 2,000 yearlings set by the bonus committee looks well within reach.

"We hoped in the beginning to have a united body of vendors and that is the trend so far," said bonus committee member John Osborne on Sunday. "It is gratifying to see the support behind the scheme so far, especially given the work put in by people to get it up and running."

The final deadline for nominations is July 15.
