Pennsylvania Leaderboard: Miss Dillingham Rewards Her Connections Without Stakes Earnings

The quickest and easiest way to reap the benefits of the Pennsylvania-bred and -sired is to run in, and win, stakes races. However, it is far from the only way to bring in generous rewards.

Miss Dillingham brought in $82,210 in rewards for her various connections through the end of July without a single stakes start in 2022.

The 6-year-old Jump Start mare won four of six races through the end of July, all at Parx Racing, for owners Jagger Inc. and Madison Avenue Racing Stable, and trainer Jamie Ness.

The majority of Miss Dillingham's Pennsylvania incentive earnings have come through breeder awards to breeder Thomas McClay, totaling $47,816 through the first seven months of the year.

As a Pennsylvania-bred and -sired runner, Miss Dillingham's is eligible for a breeders' award of 40 percent bonus on purse earnings at races within the state.

Miss Dillingham kicked off the year by prevailing in a prolonged battle over 1 1/16 miles to win a starter allowance by a nose on Feb. 9. After a runner-up effort in a starter handicap, she came back to win three straight starter allowances, all around two turns.

The standout effort during that winning streak was a front-running 11 1/4-length drubbing of her competition going one mile and 70 yards on April 12.

For her on-track connections, Miss Dillingham brought in $22,440 in owner bonuses through the end of July. For races at Parx, horses bred and sired in Pennsylvania qualify for a 40 percent bonus on purse.

Miss Dillingham also generated $11,954 in stallion awards for Northview Stallion Station, which stood the late Jump Start.

A perennial leader among stallion award earners, Jump Start accounted for $126,023 in award money through the end of August.
