Grace Period Extended for ASB Grand National

Lexington, Kentucky  – The original 10-day grace period to submit 2008 Stallion Nominations and Foal Recordings has been extended, from the original deadline of Thursday, December 11, 2008, to Tuesday, December 30, 2008.

Since its inception in 1984, Grand National has awarded over $2.6 million in prize money.  In 2008 alone, Grand National offered $147,000 in prize money, to Grand National eligible horses showing at 30 different competitions, spanning 57 various classes.

All owners, original recorders, and sire nominators must be active members of ASHA at the time of the competition to receive prize money.  Likewise, all owners, original recorders and sire nominators receive equal shares of purses, resulting in significant increases in prizes awarded to the original recorder and sire nominator.

For the second year Grand National will be offering an additional $40,000 in the Special Stakes Championships, which is over and above the prize money in designated classes for 2009.

For consideration, all 2008 Stallion Nominations and Foal Recordings must be received by the adjusted grace period deadline of Tuesday, December 30, 2008.  To download forms and to view the list of nominated stallions, click here.
