Dear Owners/Staking Agents,
 
Below is a quick update on some our stake races for 2020:
 
Breeders Crown No. 37:
 
Breeders Crown No. 37 Stallion Nominations for first-year stallions placed in commercial service (which would not include test breedings) must be paid within 60 days after the stallion first breeds a mare. In no event will any first-year stallion nomination fee be accepted after December 31, 2020. Stallion Nominations forms can be found here: Breeders Crown No. 37 Stallion Nomination Form.
 
Madison County Date Correction:
 
Please note that the Madison County at Harrah’s Hoosier Park for 2-year-old colt trotters with a final sustaining payment due April 15 has always been scheduled for Friday, September 25, not Thursday, October 29 as listed in some of the April payment ads. The race dates and estimated purses for all of the Madison County divisions is as follows:
 
The Madison County   2yo C&G trot   Friday   9/25/20   $75,000 Est.
The Madison County   2yo filly pace   Thursday   10/29/20   $70,000 Est.
The Madison County   2yo filly trot   Thursday   10/29/20   $70,000 Est.
The Madison County   2yo C&G pace   Friday   10/30/20   $70,000 Est.
 
Cancelled Race Refunds:
 
The W.N. Reynolds Early Closers for 3-year-old colt and filly pacers at Yonkers Raceway originally scheduled for May 2 have been canceled. The Hambletonian Society will refund all eligible horses that have made payments for these Reynolds divisions. In accordance with the published conditions (see below) refunds will be handled by the Society office as quickly as possible.
 
Cancellation: The Society, NMR, MYI and the Track further reserve the right to cancel any or all of the races if for reasons beyond their control it becomes impractical or undesirable in the opinion of the Sponsor to conduct said race(s). If an event is not raced due to circumstances beyond their control, the Sponsor’s responsibility and liability will be limited to refunding without interest nomination, sustaining and entrance fees collected toward canceled event that have not been disbursed at the time of cancellation. These monies will be prorated among the owners of the horses eligible as of the time of cancellation.
 
The 2020 Dexter Cup and Lady Suffolk Stakes for 3-year-old colt and filly trotters scheduled for April and May race dates at Freehold Raceway have also been canceled. The Hambletonian Society will also handle refunds for those races according to the published conditions:
 
Cancellation: The Sponsor further reserves the right to cancel either or both of the races if for reasons beyond its control it becomes impractical or undesirable in the opinion of the Sponsor to conduct said race or races. If an event is not raced due to circumstances beyond its control, the Sponsor’s responsibility and liability will be limited to refunding without interest nomination, sustaining and entrance fees collected toward canceled events that have not been disbursed at the time of cancellation. If canceled after the first 2-year-old payment, these monies will be prorated among the owners of the horses eligible at the time of cancellation. If canceled prior to the first 2-year-old payment, the nomination fees will be refunded to the nominators.
