Morgan Stallion Sweeps Drawing Postponed Due to Weather



The Morgan Stallion Sweeps, a raffle offering the chance to win a breeding service for 17 top Morgan stallions, announced that the drawing scheduled for February 12th has been postponed due to inclement weather until February 16th.  

The Morgan Stallion Sweeps enables ticket purchasers to choose the stallion or stallions they would like the opportunity to breed to and enter a raffle for the stallion service. There will be 17 winners and each will be able to use the service in either the 2019 or 2020 breeding season. 

“A winter storm on February 12th has caused us to postpone the Morgan Stallion Sweeps drawing,” said Steven Handy, Committee Member of the Morgan Stallion Sweeps. “The drawing will be videoed and streamed on the Morgan Stallion Sweeps Facebook page, winners will be notified and posted on Facebook and in publications.”

The ticket sales will support a Two-Year-Old Park Harness class at the New England Regional Morgan Horse Show in July 2019 with prize money being paid through eight places.
