||Changes in Lone Star Park 2004 Condition
Book and Stall Application Notable for Horsemen
Park at Grand Prairie has made a number of significant changes in its
2004 stall application and first condition book that are notable for horsemen.
In essence, the changes will lower the requirements making horses eligible
for stalls. They will also increase the maximum acceptable age of maidens
stabled at Lone Star Park from four years old to five years old.
According to Lone Star Park’s 2004 stall application and first
condition book, the new qualifications read that following horses will
not be eligible for stabling at Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie (the "Racetrack"):
- Starters for a claiming price of less than $3,500.00 at anytime must
have won for a claiming price of $3,500.00 or more since starting for
less than $3,500.00. This figure is down from $5,000.00 in 2003.
- Starters that have never won two races lifetime and have started for
a claiming price of $5,000.00 or less. This figure is down from $7,500.00

This figure is down from $10,000.00 in 2003.
