Prize Money & Bonuses


There’s nothing better than getting your first lot of prizemoney come in after a win or a good run! The amount of prizemoney depends upon the Class (or Rating) of race, where in Australia the race is held, and whether it’s a Metropolitan, Provincial or a Country meeting.

An average Adelaide Metropolitan race offers $30,000 - $50,000 in prizemoney. In addition, SABOIS (South Australian Breeders and Owners Incentive Scheme) qualified horses can earn bonus prizemoney.

The richest races conducted in South Australia are the Group 1 Goodwood offering $750,000 in prizemoney and the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes offering $750,000 in prizemoney


The South Australian Breeders and Owners Incentive Scheme (SABOIS) provides financial rewards to breeders, nominators, owners, trainers and jockeys over and above a race’s Prizemoney.

Every season SABOIS races are programmed throughout the state, offering over $3 million in bonuses for SABOIS qualified horses. Horses must be nominated for SABOIS as a foal within a designated deadline. The chances are your horse will have already been nominated if it was purchased in South Australia.

SABOIS qualified horses are eligible for a SABOIS bonus if they finish first, second or third in a SABOIS race.
