Scheduled to be hosted by Gulfstream for the fifth consecutive year, the 18th Claiming Crown will offer nine starter stakes for a total of $1.11 million in purses for horses (3-year-olds and up) that have raced in a claiming race at a qualifying level at least once.

The nomination fee is $100 per horse, per race. Horses that are not nominated to the Claiming Crown by Nov. 6 can be supplemented on entry day for fees ranging from $2,500 to $5,000, depending on the race.
