ASHA Stallion Sweeps Adds Prize Money

Don't miss your chance to get in on the money and benefits of the ASR Prize Programs. Futurity payments for yearlings, two-year-olds, and three-year-olds for Kentucky, Kentucky Amateur and National Three-Year-Old Futurities are due Friday, January 31. Last year over $160,000 was paid out to owners and nominators who competed in the Prize Programs! If you want a chance at taking home a check, make sure to send your nomination payments or take advantage of the buy-in opportunity for three-year-olds by this Friday. 

The National Three-Year-Old Futurities Buy-In gives the added option for previously un-nominated three-year-olds to compete for added prize money in Five-Gaited, Three-Gaited, Fine Harness, Park, and Park-Pleasure divisions at Louisville in 2020. Last year over $93,000 in prize money was available.  

Invoice statements and payments must be faxed, emailed or postmarked and mailed on or before the January 31 deadline. Forms and more information are available here

The Stallion Sweeps Program will once again add prize money to the ASR Kentucky Futurity and State Futurities affiliated with ASR/ASHA.

The distribution of the added prize money for each futurity will be based on the 2019-2020 ticket sales. Ticket purchasers had the opportunity to support the futurity of their choice from online sales as well as in-person sales.

Kentucky and National Futurities Committee voted to equally distribute the added funds to all ribbon winners showing in the 2020 Kentucky Futurity Yearling class, held at the World's Championship Horse Show in August. This is in addition to the futurity prize money offered through 6th place. 

Last year, more than $15,500 was awarded to winners who placed 1st-8th in the Kentucky Futurity Yearling class.

If you have any questions regarding ASR Futurities, need a buy-in nomination form or to find out if a sire and dam have been nominated, please contact Patricia Edwards at 859.259.3899 or email [email protected].
