THERE are many benefits of owning a horse in New South Wales. And even more so if you are a member of the NSW Standardbred Owners Association - you will be eligible for the Member's Bonus Race Series.
In conjunction with participating clubs and Harness Racing NSW, managing owners that are financial members of the NSWSOA have the chance to earn $1,000 worth of bonuses. And the good part is there is no limit on how many races individual horses can win in this Scheme! This year's Bonus Race dates are listed below:

The Managing Owner or the first named owner of the winning horse must be a financial member of the NSWSOA (at the closing time of race nomination) will receive $500 cash bonus (from the NSWSOA/HRC).
HRNSW will additionally contribute a $500 Bonus Certificate, if the winning horse is eligible for the Breeders Challenge at the time of nominated meeting and that the owners are members of the NSWSOA when nominations close and the horse is or was eligible for Breeders Challenge.
