Queensland Thoroughbred Incentive Scheme (QTIS)


The Queensland Thoroughbred Incentive Scheme (QTIS) supports the Queensland breeding and racing industry by providing additional prizemoney incentives for connections of QTIS qualified racehorses through QTIS bonuses and the exciting QTIS Jewel Raceday.

Providing these additional prizemoney opportunities to qualified thoroughbreds ensures that breeding, owning and racing a QTIS horse in Queensland is one of the best value for money horse ownership opportunities in Australia.


  • Bonuses across all 2YO & 3YO races held in Queensland (excluding Black Type, Feature and Magic Millions races).
  •  50% increase to the standard QTIS bonus for 2YO, 3YO fillies and 4YO mares which win or place in a QTIS bonus race. 
  •  A QTIS filly winning a Saturday Metropolitan QTIS bonus race takes home almost $80K for her connections.
  •  A win in a Midweek Metropolitan QTIS bonus race will see registered colts & geldings net nearly $24K and fillies over $28K (in races other than maidens).
  •  The winning purse of a QTIS bonus race at a Non-TAB meeting for a registered colt, gelding or entire is in excess of $8K and nearly $10K for fillies and 4YO mares.
  •  Free racing for QTIS registered horses (excluding Black Type, Feature and Magic Millions races).

Unearth the next Buffering or Winning Rupert

How good are QTIS yearlings? Queensland racing legend Buffering, and 2015/16 superstar Winning Rupert were both QTIS yearlings!

Purchased for $22,000, Buffering earned a life-changing $7.3 million for his owners, while Winning Rupert - a $67,500 purchase - amassed $1.1 million before retiring for a lucrative stud career in 2017. So start looking QTIS!


QTIS has been a shining light for Queensland Racing and its growth is crucial to the ongoing viability of both the breeding and racing industries in our State.

Not only does QTIS provide a great incentive to breed and race horses in Queensland, the QTIS Jewel Raceday has taken the Scheme to another level.
