The Signature Series is a late closing event with no nominating fee for horses 4 years old and up racing at 30 different county fairs in Ohio. Declarations for all Signature Series races shall be taken 3 days prior to the event. Please reference the speed program of each individual fair for conditions.
For 2021 a cash bonus of $3,000 for 1st, $2,000 for 2nd and $1000 for 3rd will be awarded for each gait to the horses with the most points accumulated during the series. If a horse changes ownership during the series, the owner at the time the series is over is eligible for this cash bonus.
Accumulated points remain with the horse. When horses are tied in summary for total points, all horses are considered a winner and the bonus monies are added together and divided equally.
The point system is as follows: Starting-5, Win-5, Second-4, Third-3, Fourth-2, Fifth-1. Points for cash are awarded at all fairs participating in the Signature Series including Delaware. Any pending appeal of a placing ruling issued by the judges shall not alter the point standings.
Points accumulated at fairs after Delaware will credited to the following year's Signature Series.
The Signature Series Executive Committee will make final determination of any disputes and/or interpretations of the rules in a timely manner.
