As you are likely aware, in the 2019 legislative session Texas lawmakers created the Horse Industry Escrow Account (HIEA). The funds in that account are now being used to strengthen racing purses in Texas and to grow the entire horse industry in our state.
As a result of that legislation, you are the beneficiary of an ATB Breeder Bonus Award to eligible breeders of horses placing 1, 2, or 3 in OPEN COMPANY races in Texas.
Checks are mailing today for the 2022 race meet at Gillespie County Fair Grounds. Those eligible for full breeder awards will receive 4.1687% of purse money earned. Total available awards for this meet are $2,000.
