Registry Sweepstakes Payouts Highest in 15 Years.
Friday, October 12, 2007

Lexington, Ky. ­– The American Saddlebred Registry Sweepstakes total payout of nearly $200,000 in 2007 tops the 14-year high of $172,822 in 2006 and is the most prize money awarded in one year since the Sweepstakes’ all-time high set in 1992. Coupled with its Futurities, American Saddlebred Registry prize programs distributed close to half-a-million dollars ($472,087) over the course of approximately three weeks during the Kentucky State Fair (August 19-25) in Louisville and All American Horse Classic (September 4-8) in Indianapolis.

 

Photos of all of the Sweepstakes winners, plus results and payout shares awarded in each class, can be found on the ASHA Web site by clicking on ASR Sweepstakes. To view all of the Futurity winners’ photos, results and payout shares awarded in each class, click on ASR Futurities

 

The Three-Year-Old Sweepstakes’ total purse of $116,139 in 2007 is the most since 1993, with first-place winners claiming no less than $11,600 in each of its four classes.

 

The Four-Year-Old Sweepstakes’ total payout this year is the second highest on record at $49,473 and offered total purses of over $12,000 in each of its four classes.

 

The Two-Year-Old Sweepstakes’ overall payout first eclipsed the $30,000 mark just two years ago and has now offered in excess of $30,000 for a third consecutive year.

 

Of the $4 million the ASR Sweepstakes has awarded since 1984, 19 percent of it – more than a quarter of a million dollars – has been awarded over the last five years.

 

Between the ASR Futurities and Sweepstakes, owners and nominators collected hefty sums. The top three money winners were Stonecroft Farm with $22,579; Golden Creek Farms, Inc. with $17,707; and William Phelps III with $17,510. A total of 16 different entrants each earned five-figure payouts of $10,000 or more while 21 other entrants earned at least $5,000 or more – that’s 37 of 92 (40%) entrants collecting a minimum of $5,000.

 

The grand total payout for the ASR Amateur, Kentucky and National Three-Year-Old Futurities was a combined $272,663.88 – the most in the last seven years. That figure surpasses last year’s total by more than $20,000, representing a nine percent increase – the most significant increase from one year to the next since the turn of the century.
