|Restricted Race||1st – 5||2nd – 3||3rd – 1|

|Any other Point-to-Point Race||1st – 6||2nd – 4||3rd – 1|
|Open||1st – 7||2nd – 5||3rd – 2|
|Hunter Chase||1st – 10||2nd – 6||3rd – 4|
Last season, the Subaru Restricted Championship was won by owner Steve Young, when his horse Northgeorge came third in the Subaru Restricted Series final, pushing him to the top of the Subaru Championship leaderboard. He received the use of a Subaru Forester for one year; he kindly donated his prize to the winning jockey Byron Moorcroft.
“He has ridden so well this season. The Jockey is getting the car. This horse means everything to me, he’s the first I’ve owned and this is my first season being involved with Point-to-Pointing. I love it.”.
