Breeder Incentive Program

In order to encourage breeding, BREEDER And OWNER AWARDS will be adjusted as follows:

Awards are paid for horses that finish 1st, 2nd, or 3rd

1. 25% to the breeder

2. 20% to the Owner/Developer

3. 10% to the Owner of record (except in restricted Massbred races)

4. 15% to the Stallion Owner

Owner of record is defined as that owner or entity which is listed in the Equibase Chart and Registered and Licensed with the racing office at that track at which the Massbred has raced

Owner/Developer is defined as the owner or entity which is listed in the Equibase Chart as the Owner or Entity when the Registered Massbred horse made its first career start and will remain on record as the Owner/Developer for the career and all its earnings of said Mass Bred horse.

NOTES: All funding and awards will be reviewed yearly by the board and no funding is guaranteed.

The CAP on all Breeder/Owner Awards is $5,000 in each category.

These same awards will be paid to Massbred horses running at a licensed pari-mutuel race meeting authorized by the state racing commission.

This program is in effect for all Massbreds making their first LIFETIME start after 7/1/2021.

2022 RACING PROGRAM

There are no scheduled restricted races for Massbreds at present.

1. A supplemental incentive of $10,000 will be in addition to the purse of any unrestricted race in which a Massbred horse is entered at a licensed pari-mutuel race meeting authorized by the state racing commission.

2. This supplemental incentive will be distributed as follows: 60%, 20%, 10%, 5%, 3% and 2% to the first 6 place finishers. Funds will not be redistributed if more or fewer horses are entered.

3. Owner/Developer Awards of 20%, Breeder Awards of 25% and Stallion awards of 15% will be granted on the supplemental purse awards and racetrack purses.

4. Owner awards of 10% will be granted on the racetrack purse only.

For Clarification: M.G.L. Chapter 128(2)g: authorizes the payment of cash prize awards to owners, breeders and stallion owners. It also authorizes purses to Massbred restricted races only.
