Apprentice Allowances
03 May 2018The amendments to the Rules of Racing are set out below:
542 (1) In every Flat Race which is not:
(a) a Group Race;
(b) a Listed Race;
(c) a Highweight Race; or
(d) a Race in which allowances may not be claimed;
an Apprentice Jockey, who is not prevented by any of these Rules from riding in that Race and who has
ridden not more than 139 winners, shall be entitled to claim an allowance which shall be determined
according to the number of winners ridden by that Apprentice Jockey and computed as follows
(e) if the Apprentice Jockey has ridden 9 or fewer winners – 4 kg;
(f) if the Apprentice Jockey has ridden at least 10 winners but no more than 39 winners – 3 kg;
(g) if the Apprentice Jockey has ridden at least 40 winners but no more than 79 winners – 2 kg; or
(h) if the Apprentice Jockey has ridden at least 80 winners but no more than 139 winners – 1 kg.
Subject to the provisions of the Racing Policy relating to the lowest weights to be carried in certain
Races, such allowances may be claimed notwithstanding that the effect of such may be to allow the
horse ridden by an Apprentice Jockey to carry less than the minimum weight specified in the conditions
of the Race.
