For the week…

Mid-Atlantic claiming activity rose for the third straight week during the seven-day period ending November 18.

During the week, 56 horses changed hands via the claimbox, six more than had done so during the prior week.  The total value of those claims rose by 19 percent, to $638,500, marking the fourth consecutive week that the value of claims had risen.  The average rose just more than six percent, to $11,402, while the median jumped 41 percent, to $11,250.

Parx Racing was the region’s busiest track for claiming activity, easily outpacing the other tracks in the number of claims and their gross and average values.  Twenty-two horses were claimed at the Bensalem oval with a combined value of $318,000 (average: $14,455).  That was six more horses than were claimed at Penn National, which was also second in gross value ($153,750) and average value ($9,609).  At Laurel — which carded no claiming races on Saturday — 13 horses were claimed, while five were claimed at Charles Town.

The claimbox report covers claiming activity at Parx Racing, Penn National, Laurel Park, and Charles Town Races.
