Be the winning bidder on a stallion service at this year’s AMHA and World Morgan Futurity Stallion Service Auction and your resulting foal could take home $10,000 in auction rewards.

That’s right.  In addition to the already great bonus prize money available to offspring of this year’s stallions as well as through the World Morgan Futurity, we are adding more!

If you are the final bidder on a service at this year’s auction, the resulting foal from that breeding will be eligible to win $10,000 in the future. Just be the final bidder, breed your mare, register your foal, and fill out your certificate and file it with the World Morgan Futurity.  The first foal resulting from one of these specific inseminations to win first place in any World Morgan Futurity class will claim the money.  If more than one foal wins in that year, the money will be divided by those winning entries.  Only the first year of winners will count.  Should no foal win through their futurity years, the program will carry over to their Alumni year provided all World Morgan Futurity fees and rules are met.

So, get online, bid, and be the final bidder on one of the great stallions now being offered.  There are more ways to win than ever before.

Over 50 great stallions are now online and available for bidding at . You will find outstanding stallions of all bloodlines and disciplines, with bids in every price range.  Online bidding will close on Friday, February 21, 2009 at noon PST, with bidding continuing live at the AMHA Convention on the Top Ten bid amounts (tied bids will count as one spot in the Top 10) on Saturday, February 22, 2009 at 7:30 pm PST (you may continue to support your bid by telephone at that point).
