Race Opportunities/Fillies Initiatives
Plus 10 Bonus Scheme
The Plus 10 bonus scheme boosts prize money significantly through the application of £10,000 bonuses on top of prize money to more than 230 two and three-year-old fillies’ races each year.
EBF Breeders’ Series
The £625,000 European Breeders’ Fund Fillies’ Series for 2017 includes 20 handicap races for fillies aged three-years-old and above, all worth a minimum of £20,000. The race series was designed to provide opportunities to fillies that generally fall just below black type level and culminates in a Finals day at Newmarket in October.
BHA Black Type Race Programme
Two new fillies’ Listed races were programmed by the BHA in 2016 at Ayr in May and Bath in October. The BHA has ambition to enhance and improve opportunities for fillies within the black type programme at a variety of distances, over the next few years.
