Ship and Win Program Returns at Santa Anita

Santa Anita | Benoit

The Ship & Win Program designed to attract horses from outside California to compete at the track will return to Santa Anita when the track opens for racing Dec. 26. The program, will provide eligible shippers with $4,000 guaranteed for their first start (first-time starters excluded), as well additional bonus money in excess of listed purses. For those Ship & Win horses finishing first through fifth on dirt, they will receive a 50% bonus and those finishing first through fifth on turf will get a 40% bonus in addition to regular purse money. These bonuses are applicable for one start only.

“The Ship and Win program is now well known throughout the country and we're hoping it will continue to attract significant numbers of horses,” said Jason Egan, Santa Anita Director of Racing and Racing Secretary. “We obviously have a great facility at which to race and train and we feel we've got the best turf racing in America at this time of the year, which provides tremendous incentives for those considering stabling here in Southern California year-round.”
