ASHA Grand National Classes Announced



The Grand National show season begins Tuesday, March 8 at the Tampa Charity in Tampa Florida for the Park Full Mane and Tail Adult Amateur Class.

This year, 39 shows will host ASHA Grand National classes from March until the UPHA American Royal National Championship in November.

In Grand National yearling classes, five places are paid – first, $750; second, $500; third, $250; fourth, $250; and fifth $250.  In all other classes three places are paid: first, $750; second, $500; and third, $250.

One incentive to the prize program is if a Grand National nominated horse finishes third in a Grand National class and the top two horses in the class are not nominated to the Grand National, the third place horse receives the additional $750.

The prize fund is made up from the money collected from foal recordings. Total recording fees for 2004 foals determined the prize money fund for 2005. In addition, any prize money not paid out in 2004 was added to the 2005 prize fund.  

The person who pays to have the horse recorded and the nominator of the sire will also receive 10 percent of the nominated horse’s winnings.  Even if the nominated horse or sire is sold, the original recorders and nominators will receive 10 percent.

The Grand National prize program has awarded over $450,000 since 1999.   

The 2005 Grand National schedule is available on the ASHA website, http://www.saddlebred.com/GrandNational/2005ASGNShowSchedule.pdf.
