HORSEMEN & HORSEWOMEN

BONUSES FOR ALL CLAIMING HORSES IN 2022
AUBURN, Wash. (November 29) – Emerald Downs has announced a new incentive program for its 52-day race meeting in 2022.

Beginning with opening day May 15, 2022, all 3-year-olds and older that ran in any claiming race at least once at any track—including Emerald Downs—since January 1, 2021, receive a $1,000 bonus ($750 to the horse owner, $250 to the trainer) in the horse’s first start in any claiming race at Emerald Downs which must occur before July 1, 2022.

“It’s important to extend bonuses to all horses,” track president Phil Ziegler said. “We appreciate shippers, of course, but we also recognize that some of our owners and trainers race exclusively at Emerald Downs. This bonus money helps offset their off-season expenses. For the horses that go out of state in the off season, this helps with the expense of bringing them back to Emerald Downs.”
