Morgan Weanling Gala Building Strong List of Stallions



Perrysburg, Ohio – The Morgan Weanling Gala committee is pleased to share with everyone the list of stallions currently nominated for the 2011 event. Larry Bolen, Gala Chairman, announced the stallions nominated as of February 23rd are Astronomicallee, Beethoven, Cartier, Centerpiece, Dragonsmeade Axios, Dragonsmeade Icon, Favorite Son, JW That Special Flaire, Man In Motion, Mastroianni, MEM The Patriot, Minion Millennium, Mizrahi, Stonecroft Trilogy, Tara's Firewalker, and Town Assets.

"We have such an extraordinary group of stallions already, and we are still receiving and encouraging nominations. The more nominations received the higher the payouts, and that is why it is so important for everyone who loves and breeds Morgans to become involved." Bolen stated. "We are also strongly encouraging mare owners to support the stallions listed above, and the resulting foals will be eligible to compete for substantial prize money," he concluded.

The 2011 Morgan Weanling Gala will be held at the Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show and will be open to all weanlings whose sires have been nominated to the program. Again, this event is an incredible and one of a kind way to promote a stallion and his offspring based on conformation and athleticism. The event invites all stallions into the program. The 2011 nomination fee is $3,000 for stallions new to the program and $2,700 for stallions that were nominated for 2010. A payment schedule is available and all major credit cards and checks will be accepted. Contracts are available at www.morganweanlinggala.com. Requests may also be directed to Larry Bolen at CedrCreek@aol.com, Paulette Bodnar at Hooligan@mc.net, or Shanna Gish at IndianCr@aol.com.

As a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation organized under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,  contributions are tax-deductible.
