QTISx Details for Owners and Breeders

Monday, 2nd September 2019

Sunday’s announcement of QTISx (see above), while providing cheer for owners, will also see winning breeders rewarded in feature races. In addition to the current significant QTIS bonuses in place, throughout 2019/20, QTIS registered horses will be eligible for the following QTISx bonuses. They are:

  • Group 1 Bonus – A $50,000 bonus - or a $100,000 sales voucher which can be redeemed on a QTIS eligible horse at four prescribed Queensland sales - across eight Group 1 races;
  • Black-type Bonus – A $10,000 bonus - or a $20,000 sales voucher which can be redeemed on a QTIS eligible horse at four prescribed Queensland sales - across 75 additional black-type races; and
  • Features Bonus – A $10,000 bonus - or a $20,000 sales voucher which can be redeemed on a QTIS eligible horse at four prescribed Queensland sales - across 20 additional feature races nominated by RQ.

To recognise, and reward, the Queensland breeding industry, RQ will also provide breeders’ bonuses, with $10,000 for Group 1 races and $5,000 for the remaining black-type races and features prescribed above. All QTISx bonuses are for winning horses only.  While QTISx has been developed for black-type races, RQ has also announced a number of QTIS enhancements for the new racing season. For the first time, age restrictions on QTIS races for non-TAB meetings will be removed, having previously been restricted to five-and-under. RQ will also program 4YO QTIS bonuses on selected open races in South East Queensland, with standard breeders bonus’ applicable. The first QTISx black-type race will be conducted at Doomben on Saturday, November 9 with the running of the listed Keith Noud Quality (1200m) at Doomben.
