Golden State Series
The 2014 Golden State Series encompasses 37 restricted stakes and purses of $5.5 million that will be jointly funded by the Thoroughbred Owners of California, the California Marketing Committee, stallion registration fees and through nominations of 2-year-olds in 2014. For foals of 2012, a $300 eligibility payment must be made by February 15. Foals not made eligible by that date can become eligible with payment of a one-time supplemental fee of $25,000. Foals of 2009 and earlier will be grandfathered into the program with no eligibility payment. To encourage and reward participation, purse money will be distributed through sixth place in races with purses between $100,000-$150,000 and through eighth place in races with purses of $200,000 or higher.
