In addition to the above award, the Mares Maiden Series winner is eligible for The Jockey Club's prize money bonus as follows:

  • The total prize money won by the connections of the Mares Maiden Series winner on her first run at any of The Jockey Club's racecourses*, subsequent to winning the award, will be mirrored by a 'Bonus payment' for the same amount paid direct by Jockey Club Racecourses to the Owners, up to a maximum of £10,000.
  • The Jockey Club bonus applies only to the mare's first run at one of The Jockey Club's racecourses subsequent to winning the award and does not apply to any future runs.
  • The double prize money bonus will be paid on all prize money, not just for a win.
  • Further distribution of the bonus payment is at owner's discretion (i.e. Trainer/Jockey share).
  • There is a three year limit on the bonus potential, defined as three years from the date of the last qualifying race in the relevant Mares Maiden Series.
  • In the event of joint winners of the Mares Maiden Series, the available bonus will be split equally amongst the winning horses.
  • To activate the bonus, the connections of the Mares Maiden Series winner should contact Richard Norris on 020 7611 1800 before their first run at a Jockey Club Racecourses track.
