Trainer and owner, Deanne Taylor, had a day out at Hamilton last month when The Geisha claimed her maiden win taking home the Ladbrokes Owners Incentive Scheme (LOIS) and VOBIS Silver bonus payments in addition to the first place prizemoney.
Wanye Taylor, who owns The Geisha with his wide Deanne, was full of praise for the new Ladbrokes scheme which gives back to grassroots racing by offering up to $2,000 in bonus payments if your horse breaks its maiden.
“We think it’s a wonderful incentive and we have encouraged all owners and trainers at Stawell during track work to register their maiden horses,” Mr Taylor said.
“To get the extra money certainly puts a smile on your face. We also recommend Ladbrokes to our punting friends as they are giving back to the industry which helps us all.”
By registering The Geisha with VOBIS Silver and LOIS, connections took home over $25,0000 in bonus payments and prizemoney for the mare’s maiden win.
Their sentiments around the incentive were shared by race caller Ric McIntosh whose horse Alibey has also benefited from LOIS.
“The LOIS incentive is a beauty,” he said.
“When you have a maiden every little cent helps and if you have a winner with the incentive it’s a fantastic result for all. Every owner who has a share in a maiden should be signed up.”
The bonus payments are available to the owners of the winning horse who have registered with the Ladbrokes Owners Incentive Scheme, with payments prorated to an individual’s ownership percentage of the horse.
The Ladbrokes Owners Incentive Scheme is now underway providing owners an opportunity to compete for an extra $3 million in yearly bonuses in Victoria with the first bonus payments paid out in September.
