ASR Three- and Four-Year-Old Sweepstakes Grace Period Deadline Is Friday, March 11



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

Payments for previously nominated horses, as well as new nominations for yearlings (foaled in 2015) to the Three-Year-Old Sweepstakes and three-year-olds (foaled in 2013) to the Four-Year-Old Sweepstakes must be postmarked and mailed to the ASR office, faxed to 859.259.1628 or emailed to p.edwards@asha.net on or before Friday, March 11. Nomination forms can be downloaded on the ASR Sweepstakes page.

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.

The ASR Sweepstakes program has awarded more than $5 million in prize money since its inception. For more information on ASR Prize Programs, contact Patricia Edwards at 859.259.3899 or p.edwards@asha.net.
