Wintering Money For Lower Level Claiming Horses At Hastings

2017 Program

 

The industry Associations, in recognition of the economic realities of wintering and training lower level claiming horses, have again implemented a plan to provide an incentive of $2,000 for horses that make their last start of 2016 at Hastings for a claiming price of $6,250 or less and make their first start in 2017 at Hastings at any level.  To be eligible for the $2,000 a horse must not have started at any other track after the close of the 2016 Hastings season prior to making its first start of 2017 at Hastings.

The $2,000 bonus will be paid to the owner’s account immediately following an eligible horse’s first start at Hastings in 2017.  The owner must undertake to leave he horse’s papers in the Hastings Race Office until August1/2017.   Repayment of the $2,000 will release the papers prior to August 1/2017.

Horses that start elsewhere after making their final 2016 start at Hastings are not eligible for this incentive program.  The Associations’ intention is to reward those horses committed to racing at Hastings; therefore, the incentive is available only for horses that made their last appearance at Hastings in 2016 for $6,250 or less and make their first start for 2017 at Hastings at any level.
