Digital Downs Graded Racing



Grades Stakes Racing Overview

Graded Racing Structure

There will be 3 tiers of graded racing for both 2yo's and 3yo+. 4yo+ horses may have restricted races but for the most part will compete with 3yo horses. Each tier will earn graded racing points to be counted within the tier and also towards the overall graded racing leaderboard. Horses will be ranked based on their total points and this will determine the eligibility for special meets, races and the end of season BC Championships. There will not be an auto entry process for any special meets, races or end of season BC races. Stables will have to enter their horses into these races and horses will be accepted based on their eligibility status. Only the overall points leaderboard will be considered for BC Series Championship eligibility.

Graded Racing in More Detail
Graded stakes races are scheduled over the horseracing season (4 months), over varied distances for each age category. The series culminates in a BC Championship weekend which is held during the last Friday and Saturday of every season.

To be eligible for Graded Stakes Races, your horse must have:

  • A minimum of 1 race won for 2yr olds, 1 race won for 3 year olds and 1 race won for 4 to 7 year olds.
  • Paid the once-off DD supplementary fee (US$1.00 at purchase of horse, or US$10.00 at any other time). This will enable your horse to race in graded stakes races for its entire career.
BC Series Championship Eligibility

There will be 4 tiers of graded racing for both 2yo's and 3yo+. Each tier will earn graded racing points to be counted within the tier and also towards the overall graded racing leaderboard. Horses will be ranked based on their total points and this will determine the eligibility for special meets, races and the end of season BC Championships. There will not be an auto entry process for any special meets, races or end of season BC races. Stables will have to enter their horses into these races and horses will be accepted based on their eligibility status.

Graded Racing Points Structure

The BC Series and Graded Stakes points system has been designed and implemented to give a fairer point allocation to horses entered in all graded stakes events.

This points system is particularly important for second instances of races so that horses entered in the first instance are not at a disadvantage as would be the case if fewer runners in a second instance earned the same points.

Points that are allocated per race result according to the number of entries in the race. As an example, a 4 horse race will earn the following points: 1st = 5 points |2nd = 3 points |3rd = 2 points |4th = 1 point

Rule on Ties for eligibility

In the event that there are 2 horses with equal points, the system then looks at;

  • The horse with the highest earnings during the current season goes through.
