March 2017, USA ~ In the recent HARC Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Abu Dhabi on 4 March, US representative Evie Tubbs- Sweeney gave an interactive talk on her connections with the US Show horse groups that have much of the HARC breeding. As race premiums are much more lucrative than showing with less competition for the added prize money, it is a great time to begin or return to racing.
2017 HARC added bonus money
The USA will host five races offering HARC added-money in 2017. Dates are forthcoming.
A total of $7,000 in HARC added-money bonuses will be paid per race out to the top three HARC-nominated finishers – regardless of final placement in race among non-HARC horses – as follows:
· $1,750 to breeder AND owner of the first place HARC-nominated horse (up from $1,000 in 2016)
· $1,050 to the breeder AND owner of the second place HARC-nominated horse (up from $600 in 2016)
· $700 to the breeder AND owner of the third place HARC-nominated horse (up from $400 in 2016)
If there are fewer than three HARC-nominated horses in the race, the total amount ($7,000) will be proportionally divided among the HARC-nominated horses in the race. Please note, horses MUST be nominated with HARC to receive the HARC bonus.
