I am happy to report that 663 awards were earned by your horses in award period one (January – February). On Tuesday, March 1, 2016 we mailed out checks totaling $1,352,853 in breeder, owner and stallion owner awards. These checks represent 90% of the total awards earned, as it is Fund policy to withhold ten percent to ensure that there is sufficient money to pay our awards throughout the year.
$Awarded (90%) # of Awards
Breeder $963,522 405
Stallion 239,112 198
Owner 150,219 60_
Total $1,352,853 663
These awards are all based on races conducted by the NYRA at Aqueduct Racetrack. It’s interesting to note that there was one more race day in January and February of 2016 than in the same period in 2015. However, there were 28 more races run this year than last year, which contributes to the across-the-board increases in all categories of awards this year.
Increase Over Period One of 2015
- Breeder Awards 24%
- Stallion Awards 27%
- Owner Awards 137%
Congratulations on the accomplishments of your horse(s) and thank you for breeding quality NY-breds.
