VOBIS Gold is Racing Victoria’s (RV) owners’ incentive scheme, designed to reward owners who race and invest in Victorian bloodstock. During the 2017/18 racing season, eligible owners were given the chance to share in more than $8.5 million in dedicated VOBIS Gold prizemoney and additional bonuses across 250 VOBIS Gold bonus races.
Introduced in 2012, VOBIS Gold was created to complement the Super VOBIS scheme by offering further rewards to owners of Super VOBIS-nominated horses. Under the scheme, all Super VOBIS-nominated horses are eligible to nominate into VOBIS Gold, where they will be eligible to race for additional VOBIS Gold bonuses which are paid to the winners, and second and third place-getters in all eligible races.
This year, all 2016-born VOBIS Gold nominated horses will also be eligible to run in the inaugural $1 million VOBIS Sires ‘The Showdown’ race for two-year-olds, to be held at Caulfield on Owners and Breeders Raceday in 2019.
All VOBIS Gold-nominated horses are also eligible to race in the exclusive VOBIS Gold Premier Race Series, which features 18 races offering prize money and bonuses totalling over $4.45 million for the 2018/19 season. For a full list of races, prize money and bonus breakdown, click here.
VOBIS Gold nominations for 2016-born foals have now closed on Friday 31 August, 2018. The 2017-born foal nominations will open June 2019.
