The tables set out the average prize-money at each fixture staged by a racecourse over the last 12 months. They show how this is made up of the three sources of prize-money: 1. Racecourses' contribution
2. Levy Board (HBLB)
The tables also confirm the number of fixtures staged and the total amount of prize-money paid out by each racecourse throughout this period.
The racecourses are ordered by the average amount of their own contribution to prize-money at each fixture. This contribution originates from various sources including media rights, admission revenues and racecourse sponsors.
If a racecourse has increased its average contribution at each fixtire compared with the previous 12 months, it receives a green 'up' arrow. If its average contribution has fallen, however, it receives a red 'down' arrow.
As these tables are based on the prize-money paid out by each racecourse, the abandonment of a major fixture could distort a racecourse's performance.
