Frequent Runner Championship

THE JOCKEY CLUB RACECOURSES SOUTH WEST REGION FREQUENT RUNNER CHAMPIONSHIP

THERE ARE PRIZES TO BE WON, INCLUDING AN ALL EXPENSES PAID TABLE FOR TEN AT THE FESTIVAL 2017

The Frequent Runner Championship is aimed at rewarding trainers who run horses regularly at Jockey Club Racecourses in the South West Region, namely, Cheltenham, Exeter, Warwick and Wincanton. Tables at The Festival are open to trainers from both large and small yards.  There are two categories with one for trainers who have more than 40 horses in training and one for trainers with 40 or below from totals registered in November.  The Championship for the 2016/2017 season will start at Cheltenham on Friday 21st October and will include all races up to and including the last day of the season at Warwick on 7th June 2017 (excluding The Festival and Hunter Chases).  All qualifying races are allocated a star rating (* to *****) with trainers awarded full points (star rating) for their first runner and half points for additional runners in the same race. 

These are based on the average numbers of runners a race has attracted over the previous two or three years as follows:

1 star - 17 plus runners

2 stars - 15-17

3 stars - 12-15

4 stars – 8-12

5 stars – less than 8

The star ratings for each qualifying race are marked with the race conditions.
