The 2023 Claiming Crown will be staged for the first time since 2011 at the Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots in New Orleans on Saturday, Dec. 2, the National HBPA and the TOBA said in a joint release early on Thursday.

The event will feature eight races totaling $1 million in base purses, headlined by the $200,000 Claiming Crown Jewel.

Eric Hamelback, CEO of the National HBPA said, “The Claiming Crown was designed to celebrate our hard-knocking, unsung heroes of the turf. What better place–especially for our 25th running–than New Orleans?”

The deadline to make horses eligible for the Claiming Crown is November 18, with entries to be taken November 25. Click here for Eligibility Request Forms.
