Cranbury, NJ — A little less than a week remains to the deadline for potential supplements to the 3-year-old and older Breeders Crown races and for world champion Bold Eagle, the sole invitee to the Breeders Crown Trot, to declare.
Supplemental entries for 3-year-old and open events are due and payable by noon (EDT), Monday (Oct. 14), in the race office of Woodbine Mohawk Park. There are no supplements for the 2-year-old races.
Bold Eagle must also declare by noon on Monday (Oct. 14).
All Breeders Crown eligible horses must declare in by 10:30 a.m. Tuesday (Oct. 15).
Supplemental declaration amounts are listed below. Click here for more instructions on supplementing.
The entrance fee is included in the supplemental amount. A minimum of half the amount of the supplemental fee, minus the entrance fee, will be added to the purse. This one-time supplemental payment makes a horse eligible to all subsequent years’ Breeders Crown events under the normal schedule of payments.

Eliminations, if needed, will occur for 2-year-olds on Friday (Oct. 18) with a post time of 7:50 pm. (EDT). Three-year-old and open eliminations, if needed, will race Saturday (Oct. 19), with a post time of 7:10 p.m. (EDT).
All eliminations will race for a minimum of $25,000.
Eliminations occur when more than 11, but less than 14 horses enter. There will be a single elimination to “qualify” only enough horses that can be accommodated by the number of positions in the front tier of the starting gate as follows:
In the Open Trot, the invited winners of the designated foreign “classic” races that are declared, shall automatically advance to the final regardless of earnings. If eliminations are required and one or more of the foreign invitees automatically advance to the final, the North American-based horse with the highest seasonal money earnings in that year, as determined below, may likewise automatically advance to the final.
From the other declared horses, those with the least total earnings in the period from Jan. 1 of that year up to time of declaration, will be selected to race in a single elimination field with no more starters than can score in a single tier with no trailers. Money earnings for races outside of Canada will be calculated at the exchange rate as determined by Standardbred Canada.
If there are eliminations, post positions in the final will be determined by an open draw with the exception that elimination winners in an order determined by lot, will draw for post positions number one through five in the final. All other finalists, including foreign invitees, will be placed in an open draw for the remaining post positions. Those horse(s) that receive a bye into the final will be in the open draw for post positions in the final. All horses that start in the final receive money.
All 2-year-old races will be held Friday (Oct. 25) with an early post time of 7 p.m. (EDT). Three-year-old and Open events will race Saturday (Oct. 26), also with an early post of 7 p.m. (EDT).
