The Great British Bonus scheme has paid out the sum of £1 million in bonuses after just five months being active. A total of 63 winners have earned bonuses up to £20,000 so far, with six multiple winners already. Registration for 2019 fillies has closed, but the deadline for the 2020 filly foal registrations will close on Oct. 31, 2020.

“We are thrilled to have broken the magic million-pound barrier of distributed bonuses and are delighted the scheme has achieved all its ambitions in reaching every corner of the racing and breeding industry,” said scheme manager, Grant Pritchard-Gordon. “GBB is a valuable financial incentive, and has never been more needed than at this time. It is helping to reward and retain owners in the sport, as well as providing additional income and incentive for breeders, trainers, jockeys and stable staff. Many yards have won multiple bonuses, including several who have won four or more, reinforcing the value and importance of this scheme for British racing.
“From Hurdle and National Hunt races at Hereford, Bangor and Kelso to maiden races at Newmarket, Sandown and Newbury, we have seen bonus winners from every part of Great Britain.”
