Harness racing returns to Cal Expo under the Watch and Wager LLC banner on Saturday, Oct. 24, with a new horse incentive plan in place.
Under the two-tiered system, qualifying horses that start on or before November 15 will receive $1,000 for their first start and $500 when they make their eighth start. Those qualifying trotters or pacers who start after November 15 and on or before December 31 will get $800 for the first start and $300 when they make their eighth start.
These incentives are for horses that have not started at Cal Expo since June 1 of 2014 and there are other restrictions.
There is also a returning horse incentive program that covers qualifying trotters and pacers who have competed at Cal Expo since June 1, 2014. There will be $400 paid for the first start if made on or before November 15, with $300 for the first start if made before December 31. (Cal Expo)
