Morgan Weanling Gala Encourages Stallion Owners to Complete Nominations

Perrysburg, Ohio – A little more than three weeks ago, we were pleased to announce that eligible Morgan weanlings will have a new program, brought to you by the American Morgan Horse Institute, in which to compete and earn substantial prize money for their owners beginning in 2009.

The inaugural Morgan Weanling Gala will be held at the 2009 Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show and will be open to all weanlings whose sires have been nominated to the program. 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 payouts are based on percentages of total monies collected, meaning more prize money will be distributed as the number of nominated stallions increases. "We have seen a tremendous response from stallion owners, breeders and Morgan enthusiasts who are thrilled to have a way to market their stallions and young prospects and support the breed," said Chairman Larry Bolen. "What we need now is for all interested parties to further their commitments by signing and returning the Stallion Nomination contracts as soon as possible," Bolen urged. "We also encourage mare owners to make sure that the stallions of their choice are nominated."

Treasurer Paulette Bodnar reported that "Contracts have been coming through the mail at an encouraging rate and more contacts are being made every day." With just a short time left before the initial deadline, the entire committee would like to encourage stallion owners to mail their contracts within the next few days. Stallion nominations for the inaugural gala event will be accepted through May 2008. If you are interested in nominating your stallion and need a contract, it is not too late. Please direct your request and questions to Larry Bolen at, Paulette Bodnar at, Elizabeth Hobby @ or Shanna Gish at Please return all completed contracts to Paulette Bodnar at the address listed on the contract.
