Details & Rules of Freelance Jockeys / Apprentice Jockeys Allowances

Apprentice Jockeys

Unless otherwise provided in the conditions of a race any Apprentice who shall have been granted permission to ride in races shall be entitled from such date after receiving permission, while his apprenticeship continues, to claim a weight allowance on the following scale:

If he has not ridden 20 winners:
10 lbs
If he has ridden 20 winners but as not ridden 45 winners:
7 lbs
If he has ridden 45 winners but has not ridden 70 winners:
5 lbs
If he has ridden 70 winners but has not ridden 95 winners:
3 lbs
If he has ridden 95 winners:
2 lbs

As is the current practice, for the purposes of calculating the eligibility of an Apprentice to a weight allowance, a winning ride as an Apprentice in any race outside the Hong Kong SAR will only be taken into account if such race has Group or Listed status.
