Using Horse Industry Escrow Account (HIEA) funds which are a result of the successful passage of HB 2463, the TTA has implemented a NEW PROGRAM whereby the eligible breeders of Accredited Texas-bred racehorses placing 1, 2 or 3 in any race in the US (other than Texas) may receive a breeder award.
Awards are payable only on races run outside of Texas when there are NO live Thoroughbred meets in Texas, UNLESS the out of state race is a stakes race with a minimum purse of $50,000.
The total amount of these breeder awards for calendar year 2020 is $100,000. Breeder awards are calculated as a percentage of purse money earned for finishing in the top three.
Breeders eligible for 100% awards will receive 11.734% of purse money earned, and those eligible for 50% awards will receive 4.886% of purse money earned. For awards calculation purposes, all individual race purses are capped at $75,000.
Congratulations, and we appreciate your participation in the Accredited Texas-Bred Thoroughbred Program. Questions? Call us at 512.458.6133.
