The Delaware Standardbred Owners Association is happy to announce that yesterday S.B.29 W/S.A.1 passed the full House of Representatives 39-1, 1 absent, and is now ready for the Governor's  signature. The bill becomes effective with the 2022 State's Fiscal Year, which begins on July 1, 2021. As you may know the state will put up $500,000.00 and horsemen will match that ($250,000.00 each from Dover Downs & Harrington Raceway purse accounts) to increase the annual Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund allocation to $4,000,000.00. Thank you to our Delaware legislators!
