The Hambletonian Society, which owns and administers the $6 million Breeders Crown series, will raise the purses on seven of the 12 divisions of the Breeders Crown championship races to held at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Oct. 25 & 26. "In recent years the Breeders Crown program has enjoyed support on all fronts - from breeders, owners, trainers and stallion nominators, and we always strive to keep our purse levels high while maintaining the future stability of the program," said John Campbell, president of the Hambletonian Society. "It's important to give owners return on their stake payments, particularly for the two-year-old divisions, as quickly as possible." For the fifth straight year the two-year-old Breeders Crown events will be raised to $600,000, making them among the richest offered for the age group in North America. An additional $50,000 will be added to each of the mare events and $100,000 to the open pace. The Breeders Crown Mare Trot and Pace will now race for $300,000 each and the Breeders Crown Pace for $500,000. The Crown Trot and all four sophomore divisions remain at $500,000. The Society has a mission statement incumbent on supporting and promoting the breeding of Standardbred horses, and raising two-year-old purses shows provides immediate benefit to breeders, owners and yearling buyers. The 2019 Breeders Crown will take place over two nights in October, with the host track of Woodbine Mohawk Park creating a festive weekend of events surrounding the races.

The broadcast will re-air Sunday, Aug. 4 at 8:30 a.m. CBS Sports Network has been the broadcast home of the Hambletonian since 2012, and will showcase the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks, and provide coverage of the $280,000 John Cashman Memorial Trot. "The Hambletonian is the premier harness racing event in North America," said Hambletonian Society president John Campbell, the organization that owns and administers 136 of racing's most important events. "The Hambletonian has been televised for 40 years and with the support of our broadcast partners, The Meadowlands, and the U.S. Trotting Association that is going to continue." The on-air team for the Hambletonian is a stellar trio of award-winning harness racing veterans. Gary Seibel, a former host of racing coverage on ESPN, NBC, CBS and TVG, will anchor the coverage. A member of harness racing's Communicators Hall of Fame, Seibel will be appearing on his 26th straight Hambletonian broadcast, including a 13-year run on CBS and a 5-year stint with NBC. Seibel is a veteran horse racing broadcaster, who has been widely recognized as one of network television's premier harness racing authorities for nearly three decades. Seibel will begin his seventh season as track announcer and TV simulcast host at Cal Expo racetrack in Sacramento, California. Dave Brower, one of harness racing's sharpest handicappers, will co-anchor. Brower, a staple of The Meadowlands airwaves, recently returned to "Racing from the Meadowlands" television program on SNY, and is an alumnus of Fox Sports New York, MSG Networks and TVG's "Drive Time". He is the author of the bestseller Harnessing Winners: The Complete Guide to Handicapping Harness Races. Canada's Greg Blanchard will provide pre-and-post race interviews, along with information from the backstretch throughout the day. The Director of Racing at Ontario-based Western Fair, Blanchard has previously worked for Woodbine Entertainment Group in Toronto as a television commentator, hosting both network and simulcast broadcasts for both Standardbred and thoroughbred breeds and also served as Manager of Media Communications for the Standardbred division. Emmy Award winner Mike Trager and the Trager Group have been executive producers of the Hambletonian broadcasts for the past 25 years. The award winning team will be led by producer David Bruner and director David Newman, both Hambletonian and harness racing broadcast veterans. Meadowlands announcer Ken Warkentin will provide his racing expertise and race call.
