Amicus Claimed

Amicus has been racing in claiming races and tonight at Mohawk he was claimed. Each race has a condition that a horse must meet in order to be eligible to enter.  One type of a race is a claimer. To enter a claimer you have to agree to sell your horse at a set price. If someone is interested to buy a horse in a claimer, they fill out a claiming form, and place it and a certified check into a locked box in the race secretary office. Before the race the box is open to determine if any horse is being claimed. If there is a claim then at the start of the race the ownership is transferred. The original owner and trainer does get to keep any purse money.


Tonight Amicus finished fifth and was claimed.

Guess I will have to look for a replacement.
