Don’t Miss the Oct. 22 Deadline to Make Your Horses Eligible for the Claiming Crown at Churchill Downs

For Immediate Release –  September 22, 2022 — The 24th running of the CLAIMING CROWN will be staged at Churchill Downs for the first time on Nov. 12, a week after the Breeders’ Cup is held down the road at Keeneland.

This year, the eight races will total $1.05 million in purses. In addition, registered Kentucky-breds will compete for an extra $10,000 to $25,000 in KTDF supplements.

The races are being staged as starter-allowance races, not as stakes, meaning horses will be able to run on Lasix. There is $200 administrative per horse per race, due by Oct. 22, to make a horse eligible for the Claiming Crown.
