These same awards will be paid to Massbred horses running at a licensed pari-mutuel race meeting authorized by the state racing commission.

It is the policy of the Massachusetts Thoroughbred Breeders Association that awards earned in any given month are due and payable on the last day of the following month.
While this is the MTBA policy, every effort will be made to calculate and disburse the awards early in the following month after any disqualifications have been resolved.
