Ontario Bred Purse Bonuses
The Ontario Bred Purse Bonus is paid to the owner of REGISTERED ONTARIO BRED horses earning purse money in open races in Ontario. A REGISTERED ONTARIO BRED is eligible for the Bonus in any open race in Ontario until it has been claimed. Once a horse has been claimed, it is excluded from the Ontario Bred Purse Bonus program for the rest of its racing career.
In 2021 the Ontario Bred Purse Bonus is worth an additional 20% of the purse won by a REGISTERED ONTARIO BRED horse in an open race in Ontario.
The Ontario Bred Purse Bonus is paid to the owner of eligible REGISTERED ONTARIO BREDS at the time the purse is paid.
