The Arabian Racing Organisation (ARO) is delighted to announce the UK Breeders Incentive Scheme, designed to reward UK Arabian breeders who race their horses with ARO in 2022. The scheme will offer monetary incentives per race (excluding black type races) to the ARO registered breeder of any horse placed first, second or third in Purebred Arabian Races under the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) regulations for Arabian Horse Racing 2022.
To be eligible:
– The breeder/owner, must be registered with ARO in 2022 and confirm they are domiciled in the UK (proof of address is required).
– Arabians must be bred in the UK and registered with the Arab Horse Society (passport to confirm the breeder).
– Arabian horses must be registered to race with ARO during 2022 by no later than 31st March 2022.
– Horses must finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd in any eligible Purebred Arabian race in the UK in 2022 (excluding Listed, Group Races).
In eligible races that are won by non-qualified horse/breeder, the bonus scheme prize money will accumulate into the UK Arabian Breeders Fund and supplement the total funding available in 2022.
Throughout the season there will be a points system to establish the ‘Leading UK Breeder’ of 2022, as well as recognition for the second and third placed breeder. The Leading UK Breeder will be awarded a nomination to a selected stallion free of charge – though this does not include the veterinary, technical and shipment costs which remain payable by the breeder.
Genny Haynes, ARO Chief Executive Officer commented: “ARO has been working for some time to fund this scheme to help invigorate the breeding of racing Arabians in the UK and reward our breeders for their efforts. This is just one of several incentives that we are introducing this season, further details of those and the exact financial rewards for the scheme in 2022, will be published in the coming weeks.”
