Appearance Money Scheme - update

Appearance Money Scheme (AMS)/Race Incentive Fund (RIF) – Update – Programme Book 2

The ROA has been undertaking an analysis of the Appearance Money Scheme ahead of the commencement of Programme Book 2 on 1 April. This follows the work carried out on Programme Book 1, the results of which can be viewed here: ww.roa.co.uk/ams

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 1,653 races which are eligible to be “unlocked” for the purpose of the AMS/RIF in Programme Book 2 (1 April – 30 June 2018). It is extremely encouraging that courses have unlocked 1,643 of these races.

The breakdown by course, showing the number of races unlocked by course is shown at www.roa.co.uk/ams

The 10 races which are not “unlocked”, and which as a result do not benefit from the additional payments of up to £1,600 per race are as follows:
