Offers to Put Up $5 Million Prize for Horse Racing's Triple Crown Winner

March 28, 2006

Online gaming giant Bovada announced today that it has extended an offer to Triple Crown Productions, LLC to put up the $5-million prize for the owner whose horse wins all three races of the Triple Crown.

The offer, which was presented to Triple Crown Productions, LLC last week, comes on the heels of news that horse racing's Triple Crown will be run without a title sponsor for the first time in nearly 20 years. Without a sponsor putting up the money, it is likely that there will not be a $5-million bonus for winning the Triple Crown title.

"Winning all three of these thoroughbred horse races represents the pinnacle of horse racing," says Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bovada. "Bovada would be honored to play a part in ensuring that one of the sport's greatest and rarest prizes is kept intact."
