ATB awards in connection with the 2020 Thoroughbred meet at Sam Houston Race Park should be in the mail by April 14th.
Due to the reduction in simulcast and on-track wagering, awards generated were lower than usual.
Award amounts are based on the amount of ATB award monies available for the pay period divided by the purse money earned (PME) by accredited Texas-breds finishing 1 – 3 in any race at this track.
Based on this formula, award totals were calculated as follows:
Breeder Awards: 5.07399% of 1st/2nd/3rd PME
Owner Awards: 4.91615% of 1st/2nd/3rd PME
Stallion Awards: 3.18330% of 1st/2nd/3rd PME
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 $224,846.73. By law, 40% ($89,938.69) is paid for Breeders Awards, 40% ($89,938.69) is paid for Owners Awards and 20% ($44,969.35) for Stallion Owner Awards.
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 21.84652% of purse money earned. The first 25% of total ATB Awards is allocated to the Owner Bonus Fund, which equates to $108,282.25 for this meet.
Congratulations to all, especially to those competing in open company races!
