Turfway, Claiborne Partner for 'Make Your Mare' Series

Turfway Park | Coady

Turfway Park Racing & Gaming and Claiborne Farm have teamed up to present a three-race series which will reward top-three-finishing fillies and mares a future stallion credit when they retire from racing.

Dubbed the “Make Your Mare” series, the top three finishers of the Dec. 2 Holiday Inaugural S., Dec. 9 My Charmer S., and Jan. 13 Likely Exchange S. will all receive “Claiborne Credit” on a $10,000, $5,000 and $2,500 scale to be applied to future stallion fees.

“We're very excited to partner with Claiborne Farm for this series of three stakes races from Turfway Park,” said Gary Palmisano, Jr., executive director of racing for Churchill Downs Incorporated. “These races will not only give owners and trainers another chance to get their fillies and mares black-type placing, but also an opportunity at credit towards a top stallion pairing when they retire. We know there are a lot of quality racing/broodmare prospects sold each November at the sales in Lexington, so this would be a great opportunity for some of the horses purchased to try and add to their resumes.”

Claiborne president Walker Hancock added, “We are pleased to partner with Turfway on their new 'Make Your Mare' Series. This will provide owners the opportunity to breed to one of our top-class stallions at an earned discounted rate, while giving our stallions more black-type mares to bolster their stud books.”

Claiborne Credits will only be applied to the top three finishing horses, but may be transferred with the horse if the ownership were to change. The credits will expire at the end of the 2025 breeding season.
