Added-money race

You are here

Originally a "sweepstakes" in which the owner put up "stakes," such as nominating fees, entry fees and starting fees, all of which went to the winner. Today the racetrack adds money to these fees, and this is called added money. In most stakes races, these fees as well as a major portion of the added money go to the winner of the race.
