Officials from Carter Sales Co. announced today that horses from the OKC Summer Sale will be eligible for a $25,000 bonus if they win the Clever Trevor Stakes at Remington Park.
In order to accommodate consignors who wish to take a shot at the bonus money, the entry deadline for the sale has been extended to June 30.
The bonus will be available for the 2014 Clever Trevor, which is set for Friday, November 7. It is a seven-furlong, $100,000 stakes race for 2-year-olds.
Two-year-olds from the August 17 sale will be eligible, as well as yearlings that went through the sales ring in 2013.
The bonus is also available in 2015 for the yearlings of this year’s sale and 2-year-olds from the 2015 sale.
Sales Manager Terri Carter said they are working with TRAO to try to make the bonus rollover in the event the race is not won by an OKC Summer Sale graduate.
“Our sale had record increases last year and the quality gets better each year. We wanted to do something to reward the people who work so hard to support racing and breeding here,” Carter said.
Officials at Remington Park think the bonus will serve as one more incentive for horses that are targeting the Clever Trevor and also the Springboard Mile, which serves as Remington Park’s prep for the Kentucky Derby.
The OKC Summer Sale is set for Sunday afternoon, August 17, at the OKC Fairgrounds following opening weekend at Remington Park and the National HBPA meeting hosted by TRAO in Oklahoma City.
Horses will be available for viewing on Saturday before the sale on Sunday. Catalogs will be on line July 28 at www.cartersalesco.com.
