Great British Bonus


A bonus scheme for British-bred fillies and mares


Great British Bonus

The Great British Bonus (GBB) launched on 29 May 2020. It is an industry incentive scheme that offers multiple bonuses of up to £20,000 per eligible race for British-bred fillies and mares. Its aim is to increase the number of British-bred horses in racing and, so, safeguard the future of British breeding.

GBB is for breeders, owners and winning connections of British-bred Flat and Jump fillies and mares who race successfully in Britain, and has replaced the NH MOPS and Plus10 schemes.
 
Devised and implemented by The Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (TBA), GBB is regarded as a self-help initiative that demonstrates the breeding sector’s commitment at this critical time, when racing and breeding are facing up to financial concerns raised by the Covid-19 pandemic. The GBB Scheme is administered by Weatherbys.
 
It aims to ensure that more British-bred fillies and mares are sought as racehorses, while encouraging breeders to race fillies and owners to retain them. This will support the economics of Thoroughbred production and selection for breeding on the basis of proven racing ability at all levels.
