64 Winners of Met Multiplier
April 29, 2015
A substantial total of 64 pacers or trotters have now won Addington’s Met Multiplier since its inception in August 2012. 23 have won the bonus this season.
The “Met Multiplier Honour Roll” shows harness horses right across the classes in both pacing and trotting gaits from a diversity of stables. Current total pay-out is at $480,000 for the initiative.
The scheme is designed to encourage trainers to support the New Zealand Metropolitan Trotting Club (NZMTC) with a lucrative incentive for the connections.
To earn a Met Multiplier a horse has to start at a (NZMTC) meeting a minimum of 15 times over a 12 month rolling period and be placed 1st or dead heat for 1st in one of those qualifying starts.
So that means that your horse has 12 months to have the 15 starts and gain one win from when it first starts at a NZMTC meeting. E.g. A horse that has its first start at Addington on 1 May 2015 must have a minimum of 15 starts at NZMTC meetings and be placed first in one of those starts by 30 April 2016. Horses that have had more than 15 starts and are yet to win can still qualify as long as they win a race within their 12 month period and at the same time satisfy the 15-start criteria within that time period.
Addington’s Racing Manager Brian Rabbitt said “that the initiative has proved to be a real winning formula for the club, owners and trainers. We have seen an increase in horse numbers and our starter numbers continue to track above the national average which is a positive result. It is intended to keep the scheme going especially as more and more owners and trainers are seeing the merit in it.”
