What are the claim allowances for Apprentice Jockeys

30 Jun 14

To compensate for an initial lack of experience at the beginning of their careers, Apprentices are entitled to a weight allowance when riding against full professional Jockeys.  The ‘claim’ will depend on how many winners the Apprentice has ridden (Rule (F)140):

7lb until they have won 20 races

5lb until they have won 50 races

3lb until they have won 95 races
