Maiden Challenge presented by Bank of America


The Bank of America program is designed to give more racing opportunities –for larger purses– to Challenge-enrolled horses 3-years-old and older that are still looking for their first win.

The Bank of America Racing Challenge provides additional purse funds to supplement tracks' added money. This combined purse really helps you get the most out of your Challenge-enrolled horses!

When and Where are these Races?

Races are added throughout the season, so be sure to check back periodically for schedule updates. The number and location of races will vary from year to year, depending on track and horsemen's support in each area.

What are the race Conditions?

The conditions for all races include: "For Challenge-enrolled horses three years old and older that are maidens at the time of the nomination date." The conditions for the time trials (if any) and added purses will vary from track to track. Races do not carry berths to the Racing Challenge Championships. Call the Challenge hotline at 877-222-7223 for complete up-to-date information.
