Racehorse Owners Compensation Scheme (ROCS)
It is possible for owners to ensure that they have financial compensation for their racehorse should it become injured, either permanently or temporarily, the costs of treating the horse at a top veterinary clinic, or the value of the horse if it dies. Together with the renowned bloodstock insurance broker Lycetts, the ROA has enabled ROA members to purchase a unique and exclusive form of insurance called ROCS.
Prize-money - know the score
The ROA works on behalf of owners, via participation on central horseracing boards and committees, and through the work of its democratically elected Board members, to secure the best possible prize-money for owners.
