A sum of money is allocated for the Breeders Awards Program “BAP” by the BC Horse Racing Industry Management Committee. These monies are part of the allocation of funds for the Thoroughbred sector of the BC Racing Industry. The amount of funds paid out on the Allowance Awards is deducted from the total funds received for the BAP. The balance of the funds is paid out for the Broodmare and Stallion Awards. These funds are split 83% for the Broodmare Awards and 17% for the Stallion Awards.

Broodmares received 15% BAP Awards on 2015 eligible earnings

Stallions received 13% BAP Awards on 2015 eligible earnings

The Broodmare & Stallion awards are paid out by the CTHS (BC Division) at the end of January following the racing season.

The Allowance Awards are paid out two weeks after the race by the CTHS (BC Division). This allows for any changes to the order of finish that may occur due to a decision by the stewards.

The 25% BC-Bred purse supplement is paid to the owner of a BC-Bred horse when it finishes 1st through 8th in all overnight races. The horsemen’s bookkeeper distributes these monies.
