It’s a Win – Win with the New Premier Prizes

A ‘free horse’ will be among the additional Premier Prizes linked to success in the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Stakes at York Racecourse.

This new initiative is offered in association with York Racecourse and Theault Horse Boxes and means that, from 2021 when the race will be run on Thursday 21 August, the winning connections from the Premier Yearling Stakes will also receive:

  • The winning owners will receive a voucher from Goffs UK to redeem at the following weeks Premier or Silver Yearling Sales. The voucher can be spent on a new yearling purchase and the value will equal to the previous year’s average price at the Goffs UK Premier Sale.*
  • The winning trainer will receive a free six-month lease of a two-stall horsebox from the leading horsebox manufacturer – Theault.*

The winning owners will also receive Owners badges, lunch and a bottle of champagne on the table for up to six people on a raceday at York within the year following their success in the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Stakes*. 

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented on the new Premier Prizes initiative:

“We are always looking at ways to promote ownership and broaden the appeal of racing and the idea behind the Premier Prizes is to offer something different – something you could not get anywhere else. Offering the winning connections of our Premier Yearling Stakes a free horse is something totally unique to Goffs and the Doncaster Premier Yearling Sale.

“The exciting new initiative offers more than just money and rewards both owners and trainers for their success at York whilst keeping the dream alive for future years. Group 1 winners, Classic Winners and Royal Ascot winners can all be bought at the Premier Sale and we hope that the ‘free horse’ will be fulfilling these dreams for new connections in 2022 and beyond.

“We would like to extend a big thank you to our sponsors, Theault, who will be kindly offering the winning trainer a free six-month lease of one of their outstanding two-stall horse boxes, and of course York Racecourse, who have been big supporters of our time-honoured sale race for many years and have kindly provided a hospitality package for the winning owners.” 

William Derby, Chief Executive and Clerk of the Course at York Racecourse, added:

“We are proud of our partnership with Goffs UK which stretches back over 15 years and has seen horses such as Wootton Bassett pass through the Premier Yearling Sale and on to victory in this race on the Knavesmire. This interesting new initiative will give the winner of the £200,000 Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sales Race on Thursday 19 August 2021 the opportunity to “buy” a free racehorse at the sales in the weeks following the race, have a wonderful return visit to York and the use of a Theault horsebox. We hope this wonderful prize will add tremendous interest and value to owners entered in the race.  We look forward to hopefully seeing the yearling return to York the following year for the 2022 renewal of this race.”
