TRI Equestrian and the Plus 10 Bonus Scheme have announced a joint initiative which will see the groom in charge of every Plus 10 bonus winner in Ireland receive a soft shell jacket.

"Good stable staff are the key to any successful yard," said TRI racing manager Karen Morgan. "They work long hours in all conditions and with incredible dedication to the horses under their care. They are an integral cog in the success of the Irish thoroughbred industry."

Plus 10 Irish representative Fiona Goor added: "We are so lucky with the calibre of horsemen and women that we have here in Ireland and it was important for us to find some way to show our appreciation for all they do."

The initiative will be promoted on social media using the #startswithstaff hashtag.
