The Breeders Crown, harness racing divisional championship series, kicks into gear this week with supplemental entries due and payable on Monday, Aug. 10, at 12 noon (EDT) in the racing secretary's office at the Meadowlands Racetrack. The four Open Events, worth $1.6 million, have finals scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 22, along with the rich Woodrow Wilson and Sweetheart stakes.
Supplemental payments in the year of the race also make a horse eligible to subsequent year’s Breeders Crown events under the normal schedule of payments. A minimum of 50 percent of all supplemental fees are added to the purse.


The $600,000 Breeders Crown Trot carries a supplemental fee of $75,000. The $250,000 Mare Trot has a supplemental fee of $31,250.


On the pacing side, the $500,000 Breeders Crown Pace can be entered for a supplemental fee of $62,500. The $300,000 distaff pacing Crown division demands a $37,500 fee to supplement.


Regular declarations for all other horses kept eligible by the required sustaining payments in 2009 are due Tuesday, Aug. 11, by 10 a.m. at the Meadowlands Racetrack.


All purse and supplemental amounts are in U.S. funds; all purses are guaranteed. All Breeders Crown eligibles and racing conditions can be found at Hambletonian.org. (Meadowlands)
