« Return to News
The initial payment deadline for eligibility to more than 127 stake events at 14 different tracks, headlined by the $1 million Hambletonian at the Meadowlands on Aug. 8 and the $5 million Breeders Crown events at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto on Oct. 24, is fast approaching.
Because of the federal holiday on Monday, payments for all Hambletonian-Society serviced sakes are due Tuesday, Feb. 17, and must be postmarked by midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 18, per USTA Rule 12.02.
Important changes to the 2015 stakes landscape include the canceling of the Historic Stakes for this year only; a host of new races and changes to existing ones in Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio and the freshman Fall Final Four Championships rotating back to The Meadowlands this year.
New races with Feb. 15 payments due:
Dan Patch(was an Invitational, now an early closer in 2015)
Cleveland Trotting Classic (4-year-old & up trotters)
Crossroads of America (3-year-old filly trot)
Jenna's Beach Boy (3-year-old colt pacers)
Meadows Maturities (4-year-old & up horse & mare trots)
USS Indianapolis Memorial (3-year-old Filly Pacers)

In all cases only ONE check (U.S. FUNDS) is ever necessary for each of the four payments periods i.e.: Feb. 15, March 15, April 15 or May 15.
All races with Feb. 15 payments due:
