Santa Anita 'Ship & Win' Returns

Edited Press Release

Santa Anita Park's “Ship & Win” program is scheduled to return for the track's 18-day Autumn Meet, which opens Friday, Sept. 30. Hosted in conjunction with the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, the program offers a $5,000 bonus for any eligible horse making its first start and a 35% bonus, excluding stakes races.

“Ship and Win has proven to be a very effective catalyst in attracting new equine talent and we're very hopeful that many horsemen will opt to stay in Southern California following Del Mar and to participate in this lucrative program here at our Autumn Meet,” said Chris Merz, Santa Anita Director of Racing and Racing Secretary. “We are getting a number of inquiries about the program and we'd like to reiterate that it will again be in place this fall.”

Horses that currently qualify for Del Mar's Summer Ship & Win program will retain eligibility for one start at Santa Anita, providing they do not start at any other track between the conclusion of Del Mar's Summer Meet Sept. 11 and the beginning of Santa Anita's Autumn Meet. To be eligible for program bonuses, horses must have made their most recent start outside of California and not have started in the Golden State within the past 12 months.
