Gold Standard focus for Owners Jackpot days

ROA Owners Jackpot 250 wideThere will be 12 ROA Owners Jackpot racedays run at racecourses across Britain in 2019, with a focus on Gold Standard courses. The racedays will be promoted to members as regional events and invitations issued to members across neighbouring counties. There will be involvement from other industry bodies throughout the year.

A key element of the Industry Ownership Strategy Project is the review of the ROA Jackpot scheme. The ROA Owners Jackpot was introduced in 2014 to focus on and reward the owners of horses running at grassroots level. There has been annual development and evolution of the scheme, and this latest development is focused on the engagement with members, whilst highlighting the benefits of ROA membership and the enjoyment of the ownership experience. The focus remains largely on grassroots racing.

The days will involve sponsorship of races, hospitality for ROA members, the development of the regional roadshow format, promotion of and engagement with ROA members. An ROA Owners Jackpot race will also feature which will include the following (if qualified):

· £2,000 bonus to the winner

· Travel expenses to all runners

· Yard bonus

· Breeder bonus

· Winner’s rug

In order to qualify for a bonus, the winning horse needs to be registered at least 51% in the ownership of ROA members.

For horses owned by clubs and syndicates, the majority of the club/syndicate managers must be members of the ROA.

Three Thursday jumping fixtures have been confirmed for the first quarter, on January 24 (Fakenham), February 21 (Sedgefield) and March 21 (Chepstow).
