Oregon Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association

Promoting the owning, breeding and racing of Oregon Thoroughbreds

ABOUT US
Portland Meadows Racetrack

The Oregon Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association (Oregon TOBA) is a non-profit corporation committed to serving the interests of Oregon's breeding and racing industries. Our mission is to increase public interest through promotion and advancement of the breeding and racing of Oregon Thoroughbreds. Our goal is to strengthen the Oregon Thoroughbred industry, in cooperation with our board of directors and members, both in breeding and racing with new innovative ideas and incentive programs for the betterment of our industry.

The Oregon TOBA administers incentive programs to reward our owners and breeders of Oregon-breds.  
A new incentive for owners and breeders running horses at the summer fair race meets in Oregon was implemented in 2008.  The Oregon TOBA Summer Fair Circuit Challenge awards the connections of the 'High-Point' Thoroughbred.  Breeder awards are paid on all Oregon-bred wins from the summer fair circuit, and owner bonuses are paid out to the top five High-Point Thoroughbreds from the summer fair circuit!  Click Here for more information!

If you breed or own racehorses,
 it PAYS to be a member of the OTOBA and own Oregon-breds!
