Significant Player Program

Dear Racing Fan,

California Racing is always seeking new ways to offer maximum reward benefits to our valued racing fans, therefore, there have been changes made in the rewards program for players participating in the Significant Player Program at their track or satellite facility. The Significant Player Program rewards those players who wager $20,000 or more in a single calendar month on California Thoroughbred and Fair race meets (the “Monthly Threshold Amount”).

Please read on for answers to frequently asked questions.

Who is eligible for this program?
You are eligible for the program if you use one of the following cards to wager and earn points that meet the Monthly Threshold Amount:

  • Thoroughbreds Club Card (Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields)
  • Gold Club Card (Hollywood Park)
  • Diamond Club Card (Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and Surfside Race Place)
  • RaceFan ClubCard (Fairplex Park)
  • Racing Rewards Card (Los Alamitos Race Course)
  • Cal Racing Club Card (all Fair satellites)

How does it work?
Players who wager the Monthly Threshold Amount ($20,000), will earn one point for each dollar they wager using the card of their choice. Point earning is based on a calendar month which begins on the first race day of the month and continues through the last race day of the month. Players who earn at least 20,000 points in any given calendar month will receive a reward based upon the total point amount earned. Rewards will be issued in the form of a coupon and mailed to the player’s address on file. Players are able to redeem the coupons at their local track or satellite facility.

What wagers count toward earning points?
Players earn one point for every $1 wagered on qualified races. Players can use one of the above cards to wager on live or simulcast wagers, both on and off-track.

Points are earned on wagers made on California Thoroughbred and Fair races from 0 to 100,000 dollars wagered in any given calendar month. Once a patron has exceeded 100,000 dollars wagered on California Thoroughbred and Fair race meets in any given calendar month, all wagers made on day imported races in the same month will be combined with the California Thoroughbred and Fair race meet wagers. Day imported races include any race originating outside the State of California either domestic or international being hosted by a California Thoroughbred or Fair race meet.

What are the rewards?

Points Earned Reward Qualified Wagers
20,000 to 100,000 1% California Thoroughbred and Fair
100,001 to 150,000 2% California Thoroughbred and Fair and imported Thoroughbred*
150,001 and greater 3% California Thoroughbred and Fair and imported Thoroughbred*

* A player must earn 100,000 points on California Thoroughbred and Fair race meet wages before points are combined with those earned on day imported Thoroughbred race wagers.

How do I begin earning points toward a reward?
Simple, just insert one of the designated loyalty membership program cards into the designated slot on a self service or teller-manned tote machine before placing a wager.

How do I know if the tote machine read my card correctly?
If a loyalty membership program card has been properly inserted, the membership number will briefly appear on the tote screen and also print on the ticket just below the total amount wagered.

When are points credited?
Point totals are updated at the end of each race day.

How do I know how many points I have earned?
Players may check points with designated personnel at a local track or satellite facility.

How do I receive my reward?
Rewards are issued in the form of a coupon and mailed to the player’s address that is on file at their participating facility. Players are able to redeem the coupons at their local track or satellite facility.

Do points roll over?
No. Each calendar month is considered a unique monthly cycle. Points earned in one calendar month expire immediately on the first day of the subsequent month. Under no circumstances are points carried over from month-to-month.

Can my spouse or friend and I wager on the same card to earn points?
No. If it is determined that players are using one card to earn combined points, they will be immediately disqualified from the program.

How is my personal information used?
Your information is used for the purposes of this program. The operation of this program does require the recording of wagering activity. For additional information please refer to our Privacy Policy.

I have further questions; whom can I contact?
Please stop by customer service at your local facility.

The California Thoroughbred and Fair Racing Industry Would Like to Thank You for Your Continued Patronage.
