Morgan Weanling Gala Performance Incentive Program Nominations Due in April

This exciting program was launched by the Morgan Weanling Gala to recognize the get of the nominated stallions as performance horses not just pretty babies. Each year, beginning with the Class of 2014, all sons and daughters of Sires nominated for the Morgan Weanling Gala (MWG) in that year are eligible to be nominated for that year’s Incentive Program.

The first son or daughter, who is nominated, from that year to win a World’s Championship in any performance division at the Morgan Grand National will win this award. (If more than one individual wins in that same year, the award will be split.) The nominees do not have to have shown in that year’s Gala class but will pay a higher nomination fee than those weanling’s who did show. 

The award amount available will be 100% of the Incentive Nominations fees received for that class plus $2,500 generously donated by Saddle Horse Report. This is paid 75% to the registered owner of that individual and 25% to the Sire Nominator.

The first eligible “showdown” will be in October 2016 for those foaled in 2014 and sired by any of the following stallions: Astronomicallee, Balenciaga, Cingate Revelation, Hollybrook Stage Rage, Mastroianni, Minion Millennium, Roberto Cavalli, SLB DaVinci, Spice O’Life Present Tense, The Ignitor and Whispering War Chant

Note, in order to qualify, each individual MUST be nominated by April 30, 2016. Nomination forms are available at (under forms) or Contact Kathy Beverage at or 309-585-4930.

Each nominee will be announced on the MWG Facebook page and listed on our web site
