MHBA Announces New Offers, Prizes for Cross-Country Horses

The Board of Directors of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association (MHBA) recently unanimously voted to begin a program that awards breeders, owners, and bonuses to Maryland breeders registered at Sanctioned bell tower race meets in Maryland. Beginning in 2022, Maryland-registered crossbreeds running first, second or third will receive 30% of their earnings at a meeting held by the National Mountain Racing Association in Maryland. This program is modeled on current bounties paid to Maryland crosses running at Laurel Park, Pimlico Racecourse, and Timonium.

The five qualifying meetings for this program this year are: My Lady’s Manor, Grand National, Maryland Hunt Cup, Fair Hill and Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs. Rewards apply to NSA approved downhill races and flat races with wallets listed at the Maryland meeting. Bonuses will not apply to flat race training.

Richie Blue, Jr., MHBA president, said: “We believe this program rewards Maryland crossbred horses with successful careers in jumping and the people who breed, own and race them here. “This community is an important part of Maryland’s equine industry. Much of the land is known as ‘horse country’ because of their vision and efforts to preserve green spaces.”
