2020 HASTINGS STAKES SCHEDULE

OFFERS PURSES TOTALING $2.15 MILLION

CTHS-BC Introducing Bonuses

In BC Maiden Special Weight Series

Vancouver, BC (Feb. 21/20) – The 2020 Stakes Schedule at Hastings Racecourse will be worth $2.15 million in purse money over the course of a 51-day live racing calendar that begins Sunday, April 26 and runs through Sunday, October 18.

There are 36 stakes races on the agenda with the highlight being the 75th running of the $150,000 Grade 3 BC Derby on Saturday, September 12. The newly-named $100,000 Canmor BC Oaks co-headlines Derby/Oaks Day along with two long-standing $50,000 stakes: the SW Randall Plate and Delta Colleen.

BC Cup Day on the holiday Monday, August 3 will once again be the busiest stakes day of the season with the Pacific Customs Brokers BC Cup Classic and Pacific Customs Brokers BC Cup Distaff, BC Cup Nursery, BC Cup Debutante, Sir Winston Churchill Derby Trial and Hong Kong Jockey Club – all with $50,000 purses – and the $20,000 BC Cup Marathon.

Derby/Oaks Day and BC Cup Day both have early 12:50 p.m. start times rather than the customary 1:50 p.m. afternoon starts.

The four CTHS-BC Sales stakes, each with $50,000 purses, are set for Monday, August 24 at 6:00 p.m. President Grant Watson announced the CTHS-BC will be sponsoring an 18-race Maiden Special Weight series over the season with a $10,000 bonus in each race for BC-breds finishing in the top three. The bonus money will be allocated with 63 per cent for first place, 25 per cent for second and 12 per cent for third with a 50-50 split between the breeder and owner.

“We felt these bonuses are very important to both British Columbia breeders and owners,” Watson said. “It is vital that owners and potential owners of BC-bred horses know that the BC breeders appreciate their support.”

Darren MacDonald, Director, BC Racing, thanked Pacific Customs Brokers, Canmor Farms’ Ole Nielsen and CTHS-BC for supporting the stakes program at Hastings. “There’s no question their participation plays a huge role in our success,” MacDonald said.

A full breakdown of the program will be published in the Hastings Stakes Book that will be coming out in early March.

The 2020 CTHS-BC Horses of Racing Age Sale has a list of 22 horses prepared for the Preview at Hastings Racecourse on Saturday, March 7 at 12 noon. The Sale is set for Saturday, March 14 at noon at Hastings.
