Points Series

The Pony Club Pony Racing Points Series runs throughout the Racing Season and allows all members participating at Pony Club Race days to gain points based on placings and participation in their height race.

The aim of the Points Series is to recognise members who are performing well in their race and encourage them to progress in Racing.

Points are awarded as follows: 

Placing Points awarded
1st 12
2nd 10
3rd 8
4th 6
5th 4
6th 2
Completing 1


For example, a member who takes part in six race days and comes 4th in two of them and doesn't place in the others can still accumulate 18 points.

The Pony Club would like to give special thanks to RaceTech for their kind sponsorship during 2022 and positive encouragement to all the members to keep racing. Kate Hills from RaceTech explained “We are very proud to support The Pony Club Pony Racing and look forward to seeing where these jockeys progress to in the future.”

Paddy Finnegan, winner of the 138s, was delighted to win this year having been second in 2021 (his first year Pony Racing). He would like to thank his parents for paying for it all, driving him to all the races and helping to keep Rose of Clare fit when he's at school. Also Oisin Murphy for his advice and help, giving him pointers whilst out hunting!
Paddy's aim is to be a National Hunt jockey but possibly start with some flat races if he stays small enough! Looking forward to a great fun day again.

148cm winner Hannah Rose said "Winning the points series makes me feel unbelievably proud of my pony Calypso as she gives me her all and keeps me safe in every race. I would like to say thank you to my mum who has driven me to many races around the country and I'd also like to thank the organisers of the pony club race days for all their hard work. I hope to become a successful jockey in my future career riding racehorses, my favourite jockey is Daryl Jacob and I aspire to be as great as him!"

The Pony Club Pony Racing Committee would like to express their pride in what each and every Branch and Centre member alike have achieved this season. They very much look forward to seeing what next season holds and wish all jockeys the best for the future.
