Entries Closing Soon for the 2018 Yearling Breeders Open Class at the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show!



The deadline to enter your yearlings in the big money Yearling Breeders Open Class at the KSF WCHS is Monday, July 2, 2018. The Stallion Sweeps Committee has pledged a $35,000 bonus to the 2018 Yearling Breeders Open Class. This class will now pay an additional $7,500 to the winner, $6,500 to reserve and an additional $3,500 to third through eighth place. Remember, these bonus funds are in addition to the regular prize money and payable to ANY entry in the Yearling Breeders Open Class. The yearling does not have to be an offspring of a stallion in the Stallion Sweeps Program.

Based on past year’s prize money payouts, this year’s winner will earn a combined total of $9900 as well as the title Yearling Breeders Open World’s Champion. With the added Stallion Sweeps funds paying out to all ribbon winners, even eighth place will earn an impressive combined total of $4,200!

If you think you have a nice yearling, be sure to get your entries in ASAP! There is no better incentive to lead your yearling on the green shavings than the prospect of earning high dollar prize money. For more information, please contact Jenny Taylor at [email protected].
