The grace period deadline for the ASR Three and Four-Year-Old Sweepstakes is Friday, March 11, 2016.

This year, a total of $60,000 will be offered from the Kentucky Breeders Incentive Fund for the top three highest placed Kentucky-bred American Saddlebreds that were nominated and are eligible to compete in the 2016 ASR Four-Year-Old Sweepstakes classes at the World’s Championship Horse Show, August 20-27, 2016. A total of 70% will be awarded to the breeder and 30% to the stallion owner (at the time of service). To be eligible for the added incentive fund, a horse must meet certain criteria including being foaled in Kentucky, sired by a stallion standing in Kentucky at the time of service and bred by a Kentucky resident. Kentucky Saddlebred Owners and Breeders Association (KSOBA) membership is required prior to competing.  Incentive Funds will also be awarded in the 2016 Kentucky Futurity weanling class ($20,000) and the 2016 Bluegrass Futurity weanling class ($20,000).  The same criteria as mentioned above will apply to these classes.

The Two and Three-Year-Old Sweepstakes classes are held at the All American Horse Classic in Indianapolis, Indiana.
