TBS pays out more than $35,000 this week

Thoroughbred Bonus Scheme prizemoney won by ten horses since last Wednesday totals a very healthy $35,475, with owners and trainers clearly targeting races carrying TBS bonuses.

This was especially evident yesterday when a Saturday-quality field lined up in the Rating 83 race over 1670m at the Counties RC meeting held at Paeroa. The race carried a $15,000 A Bonus, the four most heavily backed runners were TBS-qualified, and they filled the first four placings. The race was won by the highly promising Old Belvedere from Doryman, Danska Mill and Gallions Reach. Old Belvedere's owner-breeders, the Hales family, collected a bonus of $10,950 on top of the $6000 or so they won from the standard stakemoney.
