2017 OTOBA HI-POINT OREGON-BRED 

THOROUGHBRED CHALLENGE!

 ~ Join us at the summer fair race meets ~
Cash awards will be given to the top five fillies/mares and the top five colts/geldings!

1st - $1000    ~    2nd - $750    ~    3rd - $500    ~   

 4th - $250    ~   5th - $125

The OTOBA offers this incentive program for owners and breeders who support the summer fair racing circuit in Oregon by competing in Oregon-bred races.

Breeder awards will be paid on Oregon-bred WINS during the summer fairs

CONDITIONS:

  • Must be a registered Oregon-bred Thoroughbred.
  • Point system: 
    • 1st place finish=5 points
    • 2nd place finish=4 points
    • 3rd place finish=3 points
    • 4th  place finish =2 points
    • 5th place finish=1 point.  
    • FIVE additional points will be awarded to each horse that enters & runs at a fair meet (For example: 5 points for entering & running at Harney County Fair, another 5 points for entering & running at Grants Pass Fair, etc). 
  • The owners will receive the cash award. The winning owner and winning trainer of each category will receive a prize to be determined by the OTOBA Board of Directors.
  • In the case of a tie, the OTOBA Board of Directors will vote for the winner.
  • If a horse is claimed:
            -  if the horse is claimed and starts in future fair meet races then the points follow the horse.
            -   if the horse is claimed and does not start in future fair meet races then the points do not follow the horse.                           (example: The current High-Point TB horse is claimed at Tillamook Fair and does not start another race at the remaining fair race meets; the points remain for the owner of the horse prior to the claim-not the claimant connections.)
  • Points expire at the end of the 2017 Summer Fair Circuit.
  • Owners, Trainers and Breeders must be members of the OTOBA to avoid a 5% service charge on cash awards.
  • In the case of dispute or clarifications, the OTOBA Board of Directors will have the final decision.
  • Points will be awarded to Oregon-bred Thoroughbreds who place 1 through 5 in Thoroughbred races only. Mixed breed races will not be recognized for points or awards.
