Jockey Club Revises Stakes Minimum Purses

Revised Minimum Purse Requirements for Non-Listed Black-Type Races

The North American International Cataloguing Standards Committee (NAICSC) met today and voted to lower the minimum purse requirement for existing non-listed black-type races by 20% for the remainder of 2020.

Given the negative economic impacts of COVID-19-related restrictions on available sources for purse funds, the minimum purse value for non-listed black-type races that ran prior to 2019 will be reduced from $50,000 to $40,000 for the remainder of 2020, and the minimum purse value for non-listed black-type races that ran for the first time in 2019 will be reduced from $75,000 to $60,000 for their second running in 2020. Requests to receive black-type for any new races will continue to be reviewed by a subcommittee of NAICSC and require a minimum purse of $75,000.

    Glenn – you are doing a great job with this publication. It shows your deep and involved commitment to our industry where so many are more interested in what they can take out with no interest in giving back. You are truly a giver and there are a number of us who are deeply grateful to you. The influence of Tyson shows in spades. Thank you.

  2. Thanks. Any compliment that includes Tyson Gilpin’s name is a big one.
