WINSTAR FARM in Kentucky has launched the WinStar Incentive Network (WIN), a rewards programme for breeders of WinStar-sired horses who win lucrative races.

The scheme comes into effect for the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita and officially starts on Friday.

It will award more than $1,000,000 in WinStar dollars, applicable for one year to any WinStar stallion. In order to be eligible, breeders must breed two mares to any WinStar stallion.

The value of the awards that will be distributed to breeders for wins at each level are as follows:

A Triple Crown race – $100,000

Kentucky Oaks – $100,000

Any Breeders' Cup Race – $100,000

Grade 1 – $80,000

Grade 2 – $40,000

Grade 3 – $20,000

Listed Stakes ($75,000 or higher purse) – $10,000

Elliott Walden, WinStar president and chief executive said: "I am very proud to introduce WIN, a new incentives programme designed to reward our breeders financially for producing quality.

"We are committing more than a million dollars in awards annually to breeders who produce black type winners by WinStar stallions. The higher quality of stakes win, the higher the award to the breeder.

"It's another way we can reward our breeders while striving to enhance the overall quality of product, for both WinStar and the thoroughbred breed as a whole."

Kenny Troutt, owner of WinStar added: "We're so excited about this incentive programme. It demonstrates our commitment to breeders, and provides us an opportunity to recognise them for their success at the industry's highest levels, as well as reward them for their loyalty in breeding to WinStar stallions.

"Breeders who are members of the WIN network will be rewarded for their success like never before."
