Rewarding trainers in The Jockey Club South West

The Jockey Club South West Frequent Runner Scheme is aimed at rewarding trainers who run horses regularly at Jockey Club Racecourses in the South West Region - Cheltenham, Exeter, Warwick, and Wincanton.


There are two categories of a frequent runner. Trainers with 40 or more horses and Trainers with 40 or fewer horses in training.


The Championship for the 2020/21 season started at Warwick on Monday 21 September and scored will be backdated and will finish on Wednesday 26 May 2021.  


All qualifying races are allocated a star rating (* to *****) with trainers awarded full points (star rating) for their first runner and half points for additional runners in the same race. These are based on the average numbers of runners a race has attracted over the previous two or three years as follows:

  • 1 star - 18 plus runners
  • 2 stars - 15-17
  • 3 stars - 12-14
  • 4 stars – 8-11
  • 5 stars – less than 8

The star ratings for each qualifying race are marked with the race conditions.




Please note, we don't foresee the mid-term prize being awarded due to government restrictions. We apologise for any inconvenience.
