NEW BREEDER'S BONUS!

The Oregon Racing Commission has provided funds to the OTOBA for a new Breeder's Bonus.

The OTOBA will pay $100 to the breeder of each Oregon-bred Thoroughbred that started at a Jockey Club recognized track in 2016.

This is a one-time bonus and for the year 2016 only. The bonus is per horse not per start. Checks have been mailed!  If questions, contact the OTOBA office.

OTOBA'S FOAL REGISTRATION INCENTIVE PROGRAM 

RETURNS FOR 2017 

Purpose:

The OTOBA Foal Registration Incentive Program will encourage Oregon Thoroughbred breeders to continue breeding and it will attract new participants to the Thoroughbred breeding industry in Oregon.


Guidelines:

  1. The OTOBA will pay a breeding incentive of no more than $225 per Oregon-bred Thoroughbred that is registered with The Jockey Club in 2017. This program is for new registrations only. Corrected registrations will not be accepted.
  2. The incentive of $225 per foal registration will be made without regard to the foal’s age. Yearlings through 3 year olds may be registered in 2017. However, the maximum incentive paid by the OTOBA will be $225 per new foal registration.
  3. The breeding incentive will be paid to the party to whom the Jockey Club issues the registration certificate for each Oregon-bred Thoroughbred registered in 2017.
  4. No limit will be placed on the number of foals a party may register.
  5. All foal registrations will be verified with The Jockey Club.
  6. Parties will submit a copy of the foal registration to the OTOBA office. The OTOBA will provide payment to the party within 30 days of receipt of the foal registration and once the registration has been verified with The Jockey Club.
  7. Parties will be notified by letter if the foal registration submitted is ineligible.
  8. The OTOBA will obtain a foal registration report from The Jockey Club in January 2018 to verify all parties have been paid.
  9. The OTOBA will provide a complete report to the Oregon Racing Commission of all foals registered and parties paid in 2017.
  10.  The OTOBA Foal Registration Incentive Program will expire on January 1, 2018.

Please contact the OTOBA office with any questions.
