Why Breed in PA

The numbers make it clear — Pennsylvania Pays! Over the last 9 years, the PHBA Breeding Fund distributed an average of $28 million each year in Awards, “Owner Bonuses,” and Restricted Race Purses, including $11 million in Breeder and Stallion Awards, $6 million in “Owner Bonuses” at Parx, Penn National and Presque Isle Downs (owner bonus of up to 40% of the purse earned on overnight races – paid with the purse, and $2.75 million in purses for Pennsylvania-Bred Stakes representing 22 races).

In addition, the Breeding Fund and the Pennsylvania Horsemen (HBPA and PTHA) paid $12 million in purses for the Pennsylvania-Bred restricted races.
