Buy a NHMOPS horse

NHMOPS imageOwners are being encouraged to consider buying a National Hunt Mare Owners’ Prize Scheme horse at forthcoming sales.

A registered horse can earn significant bonuses on top of prize-money in qualifying races.

A number of NHMOPS registered horses are on offer at public auction this summer, starting with the Goffs UK Store Sale on Tuesday 23 May.

Tattersalls Ireland is also selling NHMOPS registered lots at its Derby Sale on 28 and 29 June.

Many trainers and their owners have already benefited from NHMOPS prizes in 2017 including Stuart Crawford, Harry Fry, Warren Greatrex, Nigel Hawke, Anthony Honeyball, Nicky Henderson, Philip Hobbs, Charlie Longsdon, Hughie Morrison and Neil Mulholland.

Charlie Liverton, Chief Executive of the ROA, said: “We would certainly encourage our members to give close consideration to investing in a National Hunt Mare Owners’ Prize Scheme horse, with the valuable bonuses on offer in qualifying races on top of prize-money.”

What is NHMOPS?

The National Hunt Mare Owners’ Prize Scheme is an industry scheme to incentivise race mare ownership, where registered horses can earn bonuses for wins in qualifying races.

NHMOPS horses on offer at sales have already been registered to the scheme and there are no further scheme fees to pay. Registered lots will wear NHMOPS hip stickers and carry logos on their catalogues pages.

What are the NHMOPS prizes?

Prizes are split between winning owner (70%), trainer (15%), jockey (10%) and stable staff pool (5%) for wins in qualifying races.

Wins in mares’ only races …

Eight or more runners it’s £5,000 and £10,000 respectively for Class 1-6 NH Flat Races and Class 1-2 Open Races and Class 1-4 Novice Chases and Hurdles (but not including juvenile, maiden and beginners’ events). For fewer than eight runners, it’s £2,500 and £5,000 respectively. Terms and conditions apply.
