Increase to HBPA’s Owners Awards Payouts
The Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association of Ontario (HBPA) is pleased to announce an increase to first place Ontario bred Owners’ Awards for the 2022 racing season.
The Board of Directors empathize with the recent hardships our Owners have experienced over these last two years due to the pandemic. We understand that every little bit helps, which is why after a thorough review of the program reserve we are implementing a $100 increase to 1st place finishers at both racetracks.
Requirements and Payouts are as follows:
- Must be an Ontario foal Thoroughbred
- Payments are for all races other than Stakes
New Woodbine Racetrack Payout for first: 1st $900.00
New Fort Erie Racetrack Payout for first: 1st $400.00
There are no other changes to the program
The limit of $20,000 on the amount of Owners’ Awards money that any one entity can receive in a racing season is still in place.
We wish you all the best of luck in the upcoming 2022 racing season.
