Dear Racing Fans,
If you heard the Fund’s commercial air during HRRN’s coverage of the Grade I Wood Memorial at Aqueduct on Saturday, you’ve come to NYBreds.com to “see the math.” We told you that if you are the breeder of a NY-bred that is sired by a NY stallion, you race it yourself and your horse wins an $80,000 open-company maiden special weight, you collect a total of $72,000.
Here’s the math:
Winners share of 60% of $80K purse = $48,000
Breeder award for NY-sired NY-bred of 30% x $48K = $ 14,400
Open-company owner award of 20% x $48K = $9,600
Total paid to owner/breeder of a NY-bred = $72,000
Now that you’ve seen the math, you should consider stocking your stable with NY-breds.
And remember that you can follow all the racing action on the Horse Racing Radio Network at www.horseracingradio.net (click on “Listen live” on the homepage).
Wishing you the best of racing and breeding luck,
Tracy Egan, Executive Director
NY Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund
