The Jockey Club Bonus

The Jockey Club has kindly agreed to the continuation of their bonus scheme associated with the Mares’ Maiden Series, with some important changes. The first three finishers in The Jockey Club Mares’ Maiden Series Final at Woodford in May 2022 will be eligible for a prize money bonus at any of The Jockey Club’s racecourses*, as follows:

- A maximum of £10,000 bonus payment to owners to mirror the total prize money won by the connections of the Mares’ Maiden Series winner on her first, second or third run at any of The Jockey Club’s racecourses.

- A maximum of £5,000 bonus payment(s) to owners to mirror the total prize money won by the connections of each of the horses that finish second and third in the Mares Maiden Series Final on their first, second or third run at any of The Jockey Club’s racecourses.

- 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)

- To activate the bonus, the connections of the respective mare(s) should contact Richard Norris via 020 7611 1800 before competing at a Jockey Club Racecourse track.
