Significant Player Program

Dear Racing Fan,

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. Please read on for answers to frequently asked questions.

How does it work?
Players who wager $20,000 or more in a single calendar month will earn one point for each dollar they wager using adesignated facility card as issued by the facility. 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 1% reward based upon the total point amount earned. Rewards will be issued in the form of a reward coupon and mailed to the player’s address on file. Players redeem the rewards at their local track or satellite facility.

What wagers count toward earning points?
Players earn one point for every $1 wagered on California Thoroughbred and Fair races. Out of state wagers do not earn points. Other rules apply regarding minus pools. See complete rules for details.

How do I begin earning points toward a reward?
Simple, just insert a facility membership card 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 facility membership 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 customer service personnel at their local track or satellite facility.

How do I receive my reward?
1% 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 reward coupons at their local track or satellite facility.

Do points roll over?
No. Each calendar month is 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.
