Appearance Money Scheme - unlocking of races

The ROA has been undertaking an analysis of the Appearance Money Scheme ahead of the commencement of ARC’s decision not to unlock AMS from the 12 February 2019.

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.

Races that fall into the correct bracket must 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.

There are a total of 1,776 races which were eligible to be “unlocked” for the purpose of the AMS/RIF in Programme Book 1 (1 Jan – 30 April 2019). As of the 4 February 2019, 416 of these have not been unlocked in the remainder of Programme Book 1.

The full list of flat races in the remainder of Programme Book 1 which have not been unlocked for AMS/RIF is available here:   PB1 2019 Flat races not unlocked

The full list of jump races in the remainder of Programme Book 1 which have not been unlocked for AMS/RIF is available here:   PB1 2019 Jump races not unlocked

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