The draw for this years ITM P2P Mares Vouchers for the upcoming store sales took place this week.
The five handlers awarded the voucher were; Micháel Francis Bates, John H. Murphy, Michael Barrett, John O. Clifford and Graham McKeever.
The handlers were drawn randomly from the list of 72 handlers that trained a mare to win a point-to-point race during the shortened 2020-21 point-to-point season.
Each of the above handlers will receive a €1,000 voucher to be spent on a mare or filly at the Irish National Hunt Stores during 2021.
The promotion of mares through point-to-points continues at a time when results continue to rise.
Star mare Honeysuckle has taken the season by storm, winning this years Cheltenham Festival Champion Hurdle, as she remains unbeaten since winning her four-year-old maiden at Dromahane for Gerry Cosgrave.
