AT LAST!! Mailbox money is on the way!
The first round of ATB Awards have been mailed for the 2022 Thoroughbred meet at Sam Houston Race Park.
Award amounts are based on the amount of Accredited Texas-Bred award monies available for the pay period divided by the purse money earned by accredited Texas-breds finishing first, second or third in any race at this track.
Based on this formula, award totals were calculated as follows:
Breeder Awards: 4.329% of 1st/2nd/3rd purse money earned
Owner Awards: 4.752% of 1st/2nd/3rd purse money earned
Stallion Awards: 3.413% of 1st/2nd/3rd purse money earned
The total amount of awards paid out for Owner, Breeder and Stallion Owner Awards for this period of racing at Sam Houston Race Park is $351,915.72. By law, 40% ($140,766.29) is paid for Breeders Awards, 40% ($140,766.29) is paid for Owners Awards and 20% ($70,383.14) for Stallion Owner Awards.
Please note that for awards calculation purposes, all individual purses are capped at $75,000.00. There are no ATB Owners Incentive Awards paid on restricted stakes, as the purse already contains added money from the ATB Program.
Also, if your horse placed first, second or third in an open company race during this meet you will receive an Owner’s Bonus award totaling 19.08458% of purse money earned. The first 25% of total ATB Awards is allocated to the Owner Bonus Fund, which equates to $150,638.58 for this meet. If you qualify for this new Owner’s Bonus, you will receive a separate itemized statement, and the funds will be included in your check for regular ATB awards.
ATB Breeder Bonus awards for placing 1, 2 or 3 in open company races will be mailing soon, as will Texas-Sired Texas-Bred Owner Bonuses.
Congratulations to all!
