For the first time ever, Purse checks for those horses NOT TESTED will no longer be held. Horses that are not sent to the Test Barn and not tested will see their purse money be released immediately and be paid in the next available Pay Period. MHRI would like to thank Dr. Hovda, the MRC and Running Aces for making the resources available to make this adjustment possible.

For those seeking information on SCHOLARSHIPS that are available for sons and daughters of horsemen, here is a current listing of available scholarships and grants.
