Prizemoney opportunities like never before. . .


New South Wales has further cemented itself as the best place in Australia to race thoroughbreds, announcing another round of prizemoney increases effective from September 1st.


These increases amount to an annual increase of an amazing $24 million. New South Wales will now be paying $260 million annually in prizemoney and bonuses, which is the highest of any State in Australia. The majority of the increase in prizemoney will be on horses finishing fourth to tenth in races, bolstering returns to connections of the horses not finishing in the top three and making the thrill of racehorse ownership even more affordable.

There's never been a better time to get further involved! Prizemoney has increased in some areas by as much as 200% since June 2012 in some areas, with the minimum rise an astonishing 50%.


She is also BOBS (Breeder Owner Bonus Scheme), and BOBS EXTRA nominated which means he will be running for millions of dollars in extra bonuses over and above any prizemoney. For example (using some standard race figures):

Metro Race (Saturday) – Prizemoney = $100,000 plus BOBS up to $40,000. Total on offer = $140,000!

Metro Race (Midweek) – Prizemoney = $40,000 plus BOBS up to $20,000. Total on offer = $60,000!

Provincial Race – Prizemoney = $30,000 plus BOBS up to $10,000. Total on offer = $40,000!

Country Race – Prizemoney = $20,000 plus BOBS up to $10,000. Total on offer = $30,000!
