The Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown thanks all stakeholders in harness racing for their support during a year filled with unexpected challenges and loss. The Society serviced 133 races in 2020, and thanks to the work of our partners, host tracks, owners and horsemen, only 12 races were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. More than $800,000 was returned to owners and nominators in staking fees within two weeks of every event cancellation. It was a process - and a year - we never want to repeat.

Enclosed are links to the payment forms and updates for the 147 races currently administered by Society with payments due February 15th, 2021 (postmarked by Wednesday, February 17th), as well as the changes we have for 2021.

Payment forms are always available at or by calling our office for fax and email options. All the forms on the website are pdf fillable. Just type in the form, print as many as you need and return the form with your payments.

Along with checks, ACH bill pay and wire transfers, we accept credit cards for stake payments, which are subject to a 3% service fee which will be added to the payment total.

2021 has new races on the schedule: the Phil Langley Memorial for 3YO Colt Trotters and the Thanksgiving Classic Series for all 3YOs both to be raced at Harrah's Hoosier Park. The Madison County, previously an Early Closer for 2YOs, is now a single event - a $100,000 (est.) 2YO Colt Trot on 9/24 along with many other Hoosier Park races.

Also in 2021 the Hambletonian Society will service the PA-All Stars (a PA-bred Early Closer for 2 & 3YOs) and the returning Sun Stakes Early Closers at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. The PHHA added the Delmonica Hanover for 3YO filly trotters, along with the Earl Beal Memorial (3CT), James Lynch Memorial (3FP), and Max Hempt Memorial (3CP.)

Note: The Hambletonian Society February 15th payment ad had incorrect dates of June 23rd - 25th for the Star Destroyer at Harrah's Hoosier Park. The correct date for those races is Thursday, November 18th.

Please be advised of the Stallion Restriction Condition that applies to the Cane Pace/Shady Daisy, Reynolds and Tompkins-Geers races that we service at the Meadowlands and Tioga Downs. An updated list of the foals for stallions who are on that list and aren't eligible to the above mentioned races can be found on the Meadowlands website here: Stallion Restriction Condition

The payment schedule and racing dates for the rest of the races we service are unchanged from 2020. Current racing conditions for the races we service can be found on our website under each specified race page.

In all cases only ONE check is ever necessary for each of the four payment periods i.e. February 15, March 15, April 15 or May 15.

For convenience, eligibility lists can be emailed to nominators who request them. Eligibility lists are always available on our website.

For further information please, or to update your status on our mailing list, feel free to call (609) 371-2211 or email
