DCTP Purpose: The Delaware Certified Thoroughbred Program was created in 2002 to enhance racing in Delaware through the use of bonus money that comes from several sources. This program was proundly sponored by the Delaware Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association.  With the current bonus of 50% to (New for 2018) 1st, through 5th placed runners, this enables horses who are Delaware Certified to run for more money and compete with the surrounding area breeders programs. In addition the program promotes registered farms in Delaware to continue and grow and maintain green space in this state.

DCTP Eligiblity:  Weanlings or yearling must start residency on a DCTP certified farm(Click button below) before December 31st of it’s yearling year and must stay on DCTP farm for 90 days.  This enables this horse to be eligible for purse bonuses when they run at Delaware Park.
