Oregon Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association

Promoting the owning, breeding and racing of Oregon Thoroughbreds


Each year the members of the Oregon Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association vote for the Oregon-bred champions. Due to unforseen circumstances, we are not able to celebrate our winners in person. The owners and breeders of the winning horses will receive trophies or certificates and gift cards. Please enjoy the photos of our 2021 Oregon Champions in the Special Events - Awards Banquet page of our website!

$250 will be paid to the owner of stallions standing in Oregon who sired an Oregon-bred Thoroughbred foal born in 2021 and 2022!
$250 will be paid to the owner of broodmares of Oregon-bred Thoroughbred foals born in 2021 and 2022!
$500 will be paid to the owner of an Oregon-bred Thoroughbred that has a start in a Thoroughbred race at Grants Pass Downs or Oregon summer fair meets in 2021 and 2022. Payment will be made within 30 days of the first officially recorded start. This is a one-time payment for the first start, not each start. Bonus will be paid to the owner of the horse at it's first start in Oregon in 2021 and 2022. Subsequent owners will not be eligilbe for the bonus if the horse has already had a start in Oregon.
