Bluegrass Futurity Will Be Held Saturday October 5

The Bluegrass Futurity was developed to promote breeding of the American Saddlebred and to financially benefit the breeders of these amazing horses.  Since the first class in 2002, The Bluegrass Futurity has given away over ONE MILLION DOLLARS  in prize money.  Seventy-five percent of this money went to the weanling/ 2 year old owners and 25% went to the stud fee donors.  It is our goal to continue to help give something back to the breeders through this limited breeders program.  This year’s prize money is $53,852.00.  The 2013 weanling class carries a purse of $40,164.00 and the two year old fine harness class has a purse of $13,688.00

The Bluegrass Hunter Classic will premier this year at The Kentucky fall Classic horse Show.  In the premier class, $2500.00 in prize money will be offered to the top 6 placing ribbon winners.  The monies for this class, come from nomination fees and private sponsorship.  The horses  are not part of the Limited Breeders program, but nominate to get into the program.

In addition to the prize money, David Freedman of Freedman’s has generously donated, every year, a beautiful weanling show bridle as well as an elegant headstall for the two year old class.   All Ribbon Winners will receive a beautiful Show halter made by Freedman’s. 

The winner of each class will keep for one year the Beautiful Bronze trophies, especially made for The Bluegrass Futurity by the Kentucky artist, Cindy Wolfe
