British Owners and Breeders Incentive Scheme (BOBIS)
The Board approved a contribution of up to £1.1m for the payment of 2013 prizes in BOBIS following a submission from BHA and the TBA. BOBIS will replace the Flat Breeders’ Prizes Scheme. The Jump Breeders’ Prizes Scheme will continue, with an allocation of £0.4m, up from £0.3m in 2012.
As already agreed, the Board will be making loans available to racecourses and others with effect from 2013. It considered the submissions received against its published criteria and reached in principle agreements. Further details will be announced in early 2013 once final arrangements have been concluded with successful applicants, who will be contacted separately.
