Dynamic's ARBEITSAM Ranked NSW BOBS Bonus BEST MALE for 2016/2017

08 Aug 17

BOBS Bonuses have made racing horses in NSW more lucrative, so it's always interesting to review which horses accumulated the most BOBS bonus monies for their owners.

In the 2016/17 season, BOBS Bonus Top Honours for the season was a dead-heat by two fillies Memes and Zumbelina who both earned $70,000 whilst the top male was Dynamic Syndications Arbeitsam with $65,000.

From the point of view of many of the ARBEITSAM owners, they took the BOBS “Double-Up” vouchers rather than the cash component.

Double-Up vouchers allow owners to forego the cash and take twice as much in BOBS Vouchers which they can then use these vouchers as the equivalent of cash to offset against the purchase price of further BOBS yearlings.

ARBEITSAM owners by earning $65,000 in BOBS had a conversion value of Double-Up Vouchers equalling $117,000.

This is a great result for the owners and an obvious reasoning as to why Dynamic Syndications support BOBS eligible horses
