Morgan Weanling Gala Preparing for 4th Annual Event

The Morgan Weanling Gala committee is pleased to announce that the Fourth Annual Event will be held at again at the Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show in Springfield, Illinois on August 30th of this year. The Gala is a Morgan weanling in-hand class where offspring sired by nominated stallions compete for considerable prize money, awards and national recognition.

To date, the offspring of the following stallions will be eligible to compete in the class this fall: Astronomicallee, Beethoven, Benediction, Dragonsmeade Axios, Dragonsmeade Icon, Favorite Son, Hollybrook Stage Rage, JDS Paladin Pazzaz, JW That Special Flaire, Mastroianni, Minion Millennium, RWJ Commanding Topic, Roberto Cavalli, SYP High Definition, and Whispering War Chant.

We are still inviting more stallions to participate in the Gala. The class offers the largest money earning potential for the breed's weanlings, and it is a way to promote the offspring of your stallion by enticing foal owners with prize money and beautiful awards donated by the top vendors in the Morgan Industry.

Organizers are thrilled with the timing of the show and the facility at the Jubilee and hope that as the economy improves so will the number of entries. The MWG will continue to give mare and stallion owners avenues to show their foals and ways to promote their businesses by offering the class and seeing it to its full potential in future years. The class is a win-win for everyone but more stallion nominations are needed. You may nominate by going to our website at or requests may also be directed to Paulette Bodnar at, or Shanna Gish at Initial stallion nominations run $3,000 and returning stallions enjoy the discounted fee of $2,700 with payment plans available.  

Breeding season is only a couple of weeks away and in order to promote the stallions and the event effectively, nominations need to be in as soon as possible. Stallions are promoted on the Gala web site, in press releases, advertisements and the official logo is available to stallion owners for their own promotional pieces.
