The 2019 Staking Season Is Upon Us!

The 2019 Staking Season Is Upon Us!

Dear Owners/Staking Agents:

Enclosed you will find links to the payment forms for the 136 races administered by The Hambletonian Society with payments due in 2019, as well as the changes we have for the upcoming year.

If one of the attached forms is returned to us, please check off whether or not you would like be included in future mailings of our payment forms.

The forms are always available on our website at and by calling our office and having them faxed or e-mailed to you. All the forms on the website are pdf fillable. Just type right in the form, print as many as you need and return the form with your payments.

In 2019, The Spirit of Massachusetts Trot and Clara Barton Distaff Pace are scheduled to be raced at Plainridge Park Casino on Sunday, July 28 th . Both of these races were cancelled in 2018, but are back with us in 2019.

There is a new series at Hoosier Park we are administering called The Star Destroyer Series. This series is for 3-Year-Old Colt and Filly Pacers/Trotters and will be raced in late June of this year. The conditions are similar to the Pegasus Series and can be found on the race page itself by visiting our website.

We are not administering the Battle of Lake Erie and Cleveland Trotting Classic at Northfield Park in 2019. These races are now invitational races that Northfield will administer. However, we will still be administering the Courageous Lady Filly Pace at Northfield Park. This race is scheduled for Saturday, October 12 th .

There are payment schedule changes to the following races: The Caesar’s Trotting Classic, Dan Patch, Dayton Derby Pace & Trot, Jenna’s Beach Boy and the Miami Valley Distaff Pace & Trot. Please check over the payment forms and payment schedules on the condition sheets for these races as they all have different payment schedules when compared to how they were in 2018. The condition sheets for each race can be found on the specific race page set up for that race.

This information, while not enclosed in the packet, can be found on our website under each specified race page, as well as on the future March, April & May payment forms. 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.

To make it more convenient, eligibility lists can be emailed to those nominators who provide us their e-mail address and request these lists. Eligibility lists are always available on our website.
