In the event of less than eight entries, prize money will be redistributed and all $30,000 will be paid out based on the number of entries. 

The prize money will be paid out as follows:

“We are very excited to offer a stake for young performance horses that pays out through eighth place,” said Jenny Taylor chair of the Morgan Stallion Sweeps. “This program was a great success in its first year and we are so looking forward to continuing the success this year and into the future.”

The funds that were raised to pay out the prize money are proceeds from ticket sales in the Morgan Stallion Sweeps, drawings for breeding’s to 17 top Morgan Stallions. The stallions offered in the 2018-2019 program include: Astronomicallee, Bazinga, Cedar Creek Harlequin, DBA Street Talk, Dragonsmeade Axios, Dragonsmeade Spectre, Dressed Up GCH, Futurity French Command, Get Busy, Graycliff Tony GCH, HVK Bell Flaire, Liquid Assets, Minion Millennium, No Contest GCH, Stand And Deliver GCH, Stonecroft Masquerade and Town Assets. 

The committee wishes to thank and acknowledge all stallion owners, the stallion agents, industry connections and publications that have made this a successful program. In addition, the committee is appreciative of the New England Show Committee and New England Morgan Horse Association for their support in this project.
