West Mercian Area Frequent Runner Rewards Scheme

 

A new initiative for the 2021-22 season will reward trainers for running their horses in our races throughout the season. 

Across 21 fixtures from November - June, each race will carry a star rating depending on its propensity to attract entries and runners. For example, Point-to-Point Bumpers until the end of March will attract 1pt, whilst Open races will attract 5pts. For the remaining two months of the season, scores will alter in order to encourage runners trained both within and outside the Area to run in our races. There are maximum points in all but Hunt races over Easter. 

Prizes provided by the scheme's sponsors will be available as follows:

  • the leading six trainers with most points will receive a weekend break worth £149 from sponsors Buyabreak, dedicated to making your next UK break as relaxing and enjoyable as it can be. Buyabreak has partnered with selected hotels & resorts to bring you the most cost-effective solutions available
  • the leading six trainers will each receive a case of Notorious Pink, exclusively imported into the UK by sponsor Southwick Wines

Southwick Wines

 

  •  the leading trainer from outside the Area will win a £200 voucher to spend with Shires Equestrian, whilst the 3 leading trainers with two horses or less will each win a £100 voucher. Shires Equestrian

 

 

 

The star rating for each race is as follows:
