September 20 is Trainer Nomination Deadline for $1 Million Claiming Crown at Gulfstream Park

Horsemen are reminded that Friday, September 20, is the deadline for trainer nominations to the $1 million Claiming Crown on December 7 at Gulfstream Park.

The trainer nomination is only $100 and makes the trainer eligible to nominate any number of horses through the regular nomination payment of 0.2% of the race purse. Trainers who are not nominated can still participate in the Claiming Crown through a supplemental nomination of 5% of the race purse.

There will be eight races in the 2013 Claiming Crown including the debut of the new $110,000 Iron Lady for fillies and mares who have started for a claiming price of $7,500 or less since January 1, 2012, going 1 1/16 miles on the main track. Four of the Claiming Crown races with $100,000 purses last year were boosted to $110,000 this year. The eight Claiming Crown races in 2013, all for 3-year-olds and up who have started for a specified claiming price or less since January 1, 2012, are:

·         $200,000 Jewel, 1 1/8 miles, $35,000 claiming price
