CAL-BRED PROGRAM FOR RACING ARABIANS
CAL-BRED INCENTIVE PREMIUM AWARDS PROGRAM
California state law to promote horse racing, as well as agricultural business, within the state, provides the Cal-Bred Incentive Premium Awards Program. The purpose of the program is to add an incentive to breed and race Arabian horses in California. Each time a registered Cal-Bred runs first or second in a race within the state, the horse earns cash awards for its owner, its breeder, and its sire’s owner. The Arabian Racing Association of California (ARAC) is the official administrator of the Cal-Bred Awards program. The cash awards are generated by the money wagered on the Arabian races run in the state and are distributed on a yearly basis.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
A purebred Arabian horse, registered with the Arabian Horse Association, foaled in California, after being conceived by a stallion standing in California, OR conceived in California by artificial insemination from a stallion anywhere in the world, shall be Cal-Bred eligible.
A horse conceived in California, transferred via embryo transfer to a recipient mare who subsequently drops the resulting foal in California shall be Cal-Bred eligible.
The person/persons listed as ‘Breeder’ of record by the Arabian Horse Association shall receive a sum based upon the prorated share of first and second place earnings from 40% (?) of the Award Fund.
The CHRB licensed person (owner or lessee) listed in the official racing program at the time of the race shall receive a sum based upon the prorated share of first and second place earnings from 25% (?)of the award’s fund.
For a stallion to be eligible for Sire Awards, stallion must be officially nominated as a Cal-Bred Stallion and stallion must be standing in the state of California when conception of foal occurs. The Stallion Owner as recorded with the Arabian Horse association shall on December 31st of each year receive a sum based on the prorated share from 25% of the Award’s fund for all get which placed first and second in one or more races run in California. If the resulting foal has been sired by a stallion who does not qualify to be a Cal-Bred Stallion, no Sire Award will be issued and the 25%(?) Award will be divided equally back to the horse’s owner and breeder.
Ten percent (10%) of the Award Fund shall be used to promote the Cal-Bred Program and Arabian racing in California. Any amount not used shall be returned to the fund.
