Owner/Trainer Payment Dates 2015/2016

NZTR will endeavour to process and pay Owners and Trainers as per the schedule. Direct credit payments are made twice per month, cheques are sent out once per month. 

Where a horse has been swabbed for drug testing, and the tests have not been cleared by the payment date, the owner will be paid in the next payment run after the swab has been cleared. This does not affect Trainers payments unless the race has a total stakes of $200,000 or greater. In these cases both the Owner and Trainer payments will be withheld until the swabs have been cleared.

The laboratory which tests the swabs taken from horses will be closed on the public holidays over the Christmas and New Year period. Combined with the large numbers of races around this time, there can be some delays to the reporting of results from these swabs.

If you are currently receiving stakes payments by cheque and would like to change to direct credit, please supply your bank account details in writing to the Owners Settlement Account.
