The OTOBA offers this incentive program for owners and breeders who support the summer fair racing circuit in Oregon by competing in Oregon-bred races.
Breeder awards will be paid on Oregon-bred WINS during the summer fairs
Must be a registered Oregon-bred Thoroughbred.
1st place finish=5 points
2nd place finish=4 points
3rd place finish=3 points
4th place finish =2 points
5th place finish=1 point.
FIVE additional points will be awarded to each horse that enters & runs at a fair meet (For example: 5 points for entering & running at Harney County Fair, another 5 points for entering & running at Grants Pass Fair, etc).
The owners will receive the cash award. The winning owner and winning trainer of each category will receive a prize to be determined by the OTOBA Board of Directors.
In the case of a tie, the OTOBA Board of Directors will vote for the winner.
If a horse is claimed:
- if the horse is claimed and starts in future fair meet races then the points follow the horse. - if the horse is claimed and does not start in future fair meet races then the points do not follow the horse. (example: The current High-Point TB horse is claimed at Tillamook Fair and does not start another race for the remaining fair race meets; the points remain for the owner of the horse prior to the claim-not the claimant connections.)
Points expire at the end of the 2016 Summer Fair Circuit.
Owners, Trainers and Breeders must be members of the OTOBA to avoid a 5% service charge on cash awards.
In the case of dispute or clarifications, the OTOBA Board of Directors will have the final decision.
Points will be awarded to Oregon-bred Thoroughbreds who place 1 through 5 in Thoroughbred races only. Mixed breed races will not be recognized for points or awards.
With regards to the Oregon-bred purse supplements, the OTOBA will add $1,000 to two Oregon-bred Thoroughbred restricted Stakes or Handicap races at each fair meet. There should be a race for fillies/mares and a race for colts/geldings.
