The £1 million All-Weather Bonus Scheme, which runs from the winter of 2023 through Good Friday in 2024, will return this season, the Arena Racing Company (ARC) announced on Wednesday.
ARC's four all-weather racecourses, Lingfield Park, Newcastle, Southwell and Wolverhampton will once again host horses to compete for a range of bonus prizes, including five 'Horse of the Month' competitions and the overall 'Horse of the Year' title, which carries a first prize of £100,000. The bonus scheme will include all races across the four ARC all-weather racecourses from Oct. 17 at Newcastle Racecourse to Good Friday, Mar. 29, 2024. New for this season, the January competition will join February and March in offering £70,000 worth of prizes to the top three horses.
Managing Director of ARC's Racing Division, Mark Spincer said, “We are delighted to announce the second running of the £1,000,000 All-Weather Bonus Scheme this winter. The competition proved incredibly popular in year one, and we were really pleased with the level of engagement from owners and trainers across the country. We are really looking forward to getting underway again in October and seeing who will come out on top come the end of the season.”
