The Flat Breeders’ Prizes Scheme was replaced by the British Owners and Breeders Incentive Scheme (BOBIS) in 2013 which in turn was succeeded by the Plus 10 Scheme in 2015. For 2019 HBLB will provide Plus 10 with funding of £1.55m (2018: £1.55m).
Plus 10 is an industry-funded bonus scheme for British and Irish Flat thoroughbred owners and breeders which pays £10,000/€12,500 bonuses to qualified two and three-year-old winners of Plus 10 races.
The bonus is shared between a horse’s registered owner, the payers of the scheme’s first two registration stages – typically the breeder and in some cases pinhooker – and trainer, jockey and stable staff.
Each year, more than £7.5 million in bonus prize money will be made available across more than 750 races in Britain and Ireland.
Plus 10 is funded by a combination of registration fees from owners and breeders, in addition to funding from the Horserace Betting Levy Board, British Horseracing Authority, Horse Racing Ireland, Goffs, Goffs UK and Tattersalls.
