Jackpot plus logoThe Racehorse Owners Association’s successful Owners Jackpot – which focuses on middle and lower tier races being run under both codes throughout the UK – has been enhanced further to include a quarterly Owners Jackpot+ race, offering enhance owner benefits.

Now in its fifth year, the initiative aimed at boosting grassroots racing in Britain has been supported by the Racing Post since its inception in 2014.

Once a quarter, one of the races – called Jackpot+ - will receive special promotion, including in addition to the £2,000 bonus for the owner of each winning horse and Champagne for every qualifying runner:

  • Travel expenses - £250 - for every qualifying ROA-owned runner in the Jackpot race;
  • ROA hospitality for Association members with or without a runner in a racecourse facility, with a complimentary drink and light refreshments.

In 2018 we are also adding a new bonus to the Jackpot+ scheme. This year, if the Trainer of a qualifying winning horse in the Jackpot+ race is an ROA member, the winning yard will also benefit with a payment of £500.

The Jackpot+ days are at:

  • 9 February - Chelmsford City
  • 11 May - Market Rasen
  • 13 July - Chester (evening meeting)
  • 24 October - Fontwell Park

The ROA/Racing Post Owners Jackpot is a development of a scheme that has paid out over £300,000 to the association’s members to date. Every week one race – which must have a minimum prize fund of £5,000 already - has a £2,000 bonus attached to it. If the winning horse belongs to an ROA member and qualifies, the extra payment is made on top of the prize-money on offer from the racecourse.

Consistently throughout 2016 and the opening months of 2017 the field sizes in ROA/Racing Post Jackpot races have outperformed the industry standard. A key focus for the ROA is the flow of funds to grassroots racing, and this is something that it and other members of the Horsemen’s Group continue to work in partnership with racecourses and the British Horseracing Authority to develop.

The schedule of races is found here, in Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder magazine, and they appear in the Racing Post, as well as BHA publications such as the Racing Calendar and on the Racing Admin website.

ROA Chief Executive Charlie Liverton said: “The ROA/Racing Post Owners Jackpot has been very well received by members and, having paid out over £300,000, it has established itself as another popular membership benefit. We are now delighted to enhance the Racing Post-supported scheme even further, with the introduction of Jackpot+ days each quarter offering travelling expenses and hospitality.”
