Appearance Money Scheme (AMS) - update February 19

Following the commencement of ARC’s decision not to “unlock” AMS from the 12th February 2019, the ROA continues to monitor the “unlocking” of races for AMS and RIF prize money.

As a reminder, the scheme was introduced on 1 January 2018 to support Grassroots Racing and enhance prize money on offer to the lower and middle tiers of the sport. The following classes of race are eligible for the scheme:

  • All Class 3, 4 and 5 National Hunt races, but not National Hunt Flat races, Hunter Chase races, or Weight-for-age Maiden or Novice Hurdle races.
  • All Class 4, 5 and 6 Flat races, but not Weight-for-age Novice, Novice Auction, or Median Auction Novice races, or Weight-for-age Maiden, Maiden Auction, or Median Auction Maiden races.

In order to “unlock” additional prize money, eligible races that fall into the correct bracket should adhere to the following conditions:

  • Prize-money paid to at least fourth place
  • Prize-money for an eligible race to be at least £900 above the minimum value.

If these conditions are fulfilled, additional payments of up to £1,600 per race are payable via prize money and additional HBLB funding.

  • The full list of flat races in the remainder of Programme Book 1 which were not unlocked for AMS/RIF as at 14 February 2019 is available here (Source: BHA).   Flat races 14 Feb update
  • The full list of jump races in the remainder of Programme Book 1 which were not unlocked for AMS/RIF as at 14 February 2019 is available here (Source: BHA).  Jump Races - 14 Feb Update

The status of races may change, and we would encourage owners to check the latest funding of races when the Racing Calendar is published three weeks in advance of the relevant race meeting.

We hope that this information will assist you with the development of future running plans for your horses.
