Racing League

Racing League

July 2021 sees the launch of a new horse racing event in which 12 teams will go head to head in 6 races, every Thursday evening, for 6 weeks, with each race worth £50,000 in prize money.

In each race there will be 100 points up for grabs, with points awarded from 25 to the winner down to 1 point for 10th place. The team with the most points, after 36 races, will win the Racing League. Each team consists of:

  • Trainers - minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4
  • 3 jockeys - who will ride exclusively for one team during the competition
  • 30 horses - ‘squad reshuffle’ in Week 4 for fresh legs
  • Team Manager - who decides team selection for each race

All races are handicap races open to horses 3 years old and above with a handicap rating of 0-90. Teams enter one horse per race, with 12 runners per race. The race prize money is paid to owners, trainers and jockeys. Each meeting will have 6 races over 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 furlongs.

100 points awarded per race as follows: 1st - 25 points, 2nd - 18, 3rd - 15, 4th - 12, 5th - 10, 6th - 8, 7th - 6, 8th - 3, 9th - 2, 10th - 1, 11th - 0, 12th - 0.
