Frequent Runner Championship


Up until the start of the 2014/15 season The Frequent Runner Championship has aimed at rewarding trainers who run horses regularly at Cheltenham throughout the season.  However, this has now been extended to  include Jockey Club Racecourses in the South West, Exeter, Warwick and Wincanton. For the 2014/2015 season races from 2nd October up to and including 12th May (excluding The Festival and Hunter Chases) 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 - 17 plus runners
2 stars - 15-17
3 stars - 12-15
4 stars – 8-12
5 stars – less than 8

The star ratings for each of the Cheltenham races can be seen online here, the ratings for the other participating tracks are as below:

Frequent Runner Prizes at The Festival 2015
The top eight trainers after the meetings at Exeter and Warwick on 20th February 2015, will each win an all expenses table for 10 at The Festival. Any points awarded after this date will count towards the final scoring at the end of the JCR South West Jumps season. The prize to the winner is a box at the following year’s Festival, with catering included, and a free 12 month lease of an Equi-Trek horsebox.

Scores will be updated throughout the season on published on all the participating racecourses’ websites.
