The Hambletonian Society has announced that the purses for the 2020 Breeders Crown open mare races have been increased to $300,000.

The 2020 edition of the Breeders Crown will be the second consecutive year that the purses for the open mare races will be $300,000.

The Hambletonian Society announced the open-mare purse news in its February 15 stakes payment reminder notice.

February sustaining and nominating payments for 133 Hambletonian Society stakes and late-closing events are due Saturday, February 15, and per USTA Rule 12 section 2, must be postmarked by midnight on Tuesday, February 18.

February is the gateway payment for most three-year-old and older stakes and closers as well as initial two-year-old payments for Breeders Crown and Kentuckiana Stallion Management Stakes.

This includes two legs of the Trotting Triple Crown, the $1.2 million Hambletonian (with eliminations held the week prior) and $600,000 Hambletonian Oaks, as well as the MGM Yonkers Trot.

All two-year-old Breeders Crown races are estimated at $600,000. The Breeders Crown sophomore events will be raced for $500,000, as will the Breeders Crown Trot and Breeders Crown Pace. The open mare races have been bumped to $300,000 for the second consecutive year.

All 12 Breeders Crown races will be contested at Harrah’s Hoosier Park over the course of Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.
