The HBPA of Alberta Directors are excited to announce the following program to our eligible participants starting in 2022. The HBPA may amend the program from time to time.

The HBPA of Alberta will pay 40% or up to $5,000.00 whichever amount is less, on claims or purchases from a public sale made outside of Alberta. Claimed horses must not have ever ran in Alberta, and claim prices must be minimum $5,000 claim tag. In the event horses claimed or purchased in the US, the Canadian to US exchange will be treated as par.

The amount owing to the owner will be paid out equally (25%) over the horses first 4 starts. If the horse fails to get 4 starts over the course of Century’s Alberta race meets, it will receive the prorated rate. In the event the horse is claimed on any of the first 4 starts, the original owner will continue to receive their prorated amounts through the horse’s 4th start.

The owner must leave the horse’s papers in the Century Casinos Alberta race offices until the end of the 2022 Century Casino Alberta Racing Season, and to race the horse exclusively at Century Casino Alberta Race Tracks until the end of the 2022 season.

Repayment of all monies received for the horse will release the papers unless HRA or Century House Rules prohibits such release.
