Pearl Series Bonus

Extra incentive for registered fillies and mares

Canterbury Jockey Club’s NZB Insurance Pearl Series race (1200m) on 27 June will give Pearl Series registered fillies and mares their first opportunity since the COVID-19 lockdown to secure Pearl bonuses, as well as a one-off incentive for second-placegetters running until the end of this July.

For the six remaining Pearl Series races of the 2019-20 racing season, NZB Insurance and New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing will contribute an extra $3,000 to the owners of Pearl Series registered fillies or mares who finish second in any of the scheduled Pearl bonus races. This will be paid out on top of the usual $11,500 Pearl Series bonus apportioned to owners, trainers and nominators if their registered filly or mare wins the race. 

Race 6 in Saturday’s meeting at Riccarton Park is a Rating 67 Handicap race scheduled to take place at 1.25pm, where five Pearl registered fillies and mares have been accepted among a mixed sex field of up to 15 runners. (pictured is Papagena after her win at Riccarton Park in August 2019)

Due to Saturday’s race being mixed sex, the usual Pearl Series winners’ bonus of $11,500 will be paid to connections of the first Pearl registered horse home and the second place Pearl Series bonus of $3,000 will be paid to owners of the next Pearl registered horse to cross the line.
