The OTOBA will pay a bonus to the owners of Oregon-bred Thoroughbreds based on their earnings from Thoroughbred races at the five summer meets. The total bonus pool available is $15,000. The bonus will be distributed proportionally to owners. The bonus amount will be determined at the end of the summer meets and is dependent on the total earnings from all Oregon-bred Thoroughbreds competing. No set percentage or amount is guaranteed.

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 (example: 5 points for entering & running at Harney County Fair, another 5 points for entering & running at Grants Pass Fair). Points will be calculated by a representative of the OTOBA. Note: points follow the horse, not the owner, breeder, or trainer of the horse.
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 2019 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.
