Bonus Scheme

Weatherbys ITBA NH Fillies Bonus Scheme

The ITBA NH Committee established its highly successful self-help scheme in 2013, one of the main objectives was to enhance the prices of fillies at store sales and encourage breeders to return their fillies in training. The ITBA scheme pays out a bonus of €5,000 to any eligible filly who win their Mares only maiden bumper, maiden hurdle and beginners’ steeplechase. Therefore, each filly has the opportunity to win €15,000 without deduction on top of the prize money. In 2018, the scheme was extended to include a number of Mares only H’Cap Hurdles for fillies that did not win their maiden. To date we have paid out €1,360,000 in bonuses to winning owners.

We take applications for the Weatherbys ITBA NH Fillies Bonus once a year. The closing date each year is 30th September and we will receive applications up to that date. To make a filly eligible she has to fill the following criteria:

  • She must be 3YO+
  • Unraced at the Racecourse
  • €200 paid to the ITBA before the Closing date
