The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association will be increasing breeders awards for Louisiana-sired accredited Louisiana-breds to 20% beginning with the 2019-20 Delta Downs Thoroughbred meet which opens Tuesday. Breeders awards for accredited Louisiana-breds by stallions standing outside the state will continue to be paid at 18%. The increase was passed at the LTBA Board Meeting at L’auberge Casino in Lake Charles Oct. 2.
“The Louisiana breeding program is one of the strongest in the country,” said LTBA President Warren J. Harang, III. “The board wanted to reward breeders who make their stallion selections among the many outstanding choices we have here in the state.”
