The Great British Bonus scheme (GBB) was launched in May 2020 as an intiative to incentivise owners to invest in British-bred fillies, to support the British racing programme on the Flat and for Jumps. It additionally aims to improve the demand for British-bred fillies at the sales and ensure that more fillies are tested as racehorses, underpinning the selection for breeding on the basis of racing ability.
HBLB will provide GBB with funding of £3.5m in 2023.
GBB is confined to GB-bred fillies on the Flat and Jumps who qualify under the following categories:
Depending on eligibility GBB bonuses are awarded as follows:
100% GBB Flat filly:
100% GBB Jumps:
50% qualified GBB fillies and mares receive 50% of the above levels.
GBB prizes are allocated with funds split between owners, breeders, trainers, jockeys and stable staff. The full breakdown can be seen below:
