Northwest Race Series
continues to promote
quality of racing
in the state of Washington
money to match!
he Northwest Race Series made its debut in 1988 featuring juvenile
runners. It has proven to be a tremendous benefit to Thoroughbred breeding and
racing in the Pacific Northwest. From 1988 through 2012, over $14.6-million has been disbursed through
the racing programs at Emerald Downs, Longacres, Yakima Meadows and Playfair
Race Course. An additional $607,000-plus has been
paid in nominator awards and over $415,000 in stallion awards.
The series is open to all horses, regardless of where they were foaled.
The stallion stakes (filly and colt divisions) are part
of the series and all stallions are eligible to be nominated,
regardless of where they stand. Remember: Offspring of
nominated stallions MUST ALSO be nominated to the Northwest
Race Series to be able to run in the 2016 Stallion Stakes as two-year-olds.
Non-nominated horses by nominated stallions may be supplemented to the 2016
Stallion Stakes at that years supplementary fee.
Stallion nominators awards are paid for each
race in the Northwest Race Series each year. These awards equal five
percent of the total gross purse of each Northwest Race Series race and are
paid to the nominators of the sires of the first, second and third place horses
as follows: 50% for first, 30% for second and 20% for third.
To nominate your stallion(s), a nominating fee equal to
50% of the published stud fee, or a minimum of $500, must be postmarked no
later than April 15, 2013. (Stallions whose stud fees are by private treaty
will require a written statement from the syndicate manager explaining how the
stud fee is determined.)
