ROA Owners Jackpot

Grassroots racing matters. To help nurture it the ROA Owners Jackpot scheme focuses on horses racing in Class 4-6 races. Since its inception in 2014 it has paid out more than £400,000. Once again throughout the year the ROA Owners Jackpot will give members the opportunity to share in owner-related bonuses. Every month one horse race in Britain will be chosen for a £2,000 bonus. If the winning horse belongs to an ROA member, the extra payment is made on top of the prize-money on offer from the racecourse. 

The chosen races are only staged at courses which have signed up to the racing industry’s prize-money agreement, and as a further incentive to boost owners' prize-money the weekly races will be run only at racecourses where there is a guaranteed minimum prize fund of £6,500 per contest.

This year each bonus race has been improved, and now features:

  • £250 travel expenses for each qualified runner
  • £500 Yard bonus for the winning yard if the horse is qualified, and the trainer is an ROA Member
  • £500 Breeder bonus for the winning breeder if the horse is qualified, and the breeder is an ROA Member

Is your horse eligible to win the Jackpot?

  • Sole Owner - are you a member of the ROA?
  • Partnerships - is the horse registered at least 51% in the ownership of ROA members?
  • Clubs and Syndicates - the majority of the club/syndicate managers will need to be members of the ROA to qualify.

If you have answered YES to one of the above questions then your horse is eligible to win the Owners Jackpot!
