2023 Prize Money League Table

EXPLANATION
The tables set out the average prize-money at each fixture staged by a racecourse in 2023 and breaks it down to the three sources of prize- money: racecourse contribution, Levy Board (HBLB)  funding, and owners (via entry fees). The table also confirms the number fixtures staged and the  total amount of prize-money paid out by each racecourse
Abandoned fixtures are not included in the table, but the abandonment of a valuable fixture could well have a negative impact on a racecourse’s performance.
The racecourses are ranked by the average amount of their own contribution to prize-money, which comes from various sources, including media rights, admission and catering  revenues, and race sponsors.
