Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort and the Arkansas H.B.P.A. will honor Thoroughbred owners with a $400 per horse cash reward, regardless of where their horse finishes in a race, beginning Mar. 18 through the end of the racing season, May 6, 2023.
Stakes races are excluded from Owner’s Reward program. Owners of runners competing in allowance races will be eligible as long as seven or more horses arrive in the paddock. Owners of horses competing in all other races will be eligible as long as eight or more horses arrive in the paddock.
“Halfway through our 2022-2023 season, Oaklawn has awarded jockeys, trainers and owners with the highest purses in the country for the time we race,” said Louis Cella Oaklawn President. “In addition, we have instituted a new trainer bonus this season. For the first time at Oaklawn, we now offer an Owner’s Reward for the second half of our season. We hope this reward will entice owners to continue Oaklawn’s standing as having the nation’s leading field size per race.”
