Morgan Weanling Gala 2011 Stallion Nominations

Perrysburg, Ohio – Organizers of the Morgan Weanling Gala are quickly trying to gather and contact all interested stallion owners for the 2011 class. The third annual event will be held in Springfield, Illinois in conjunction with the 2011 Jubilee Regional. "We have seen a tremendous response from stallion owners, breeders and Morgan enthusiasts following our inaugural class this past September. All are thrilled to have 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 continue to nominate their stallions for future classes by signing and returning the Stallion Nomination contracts as soon as possible. We would also like to remind owners that they should take advantage of the 10% re-nomination discount for stallions that have been participating since 2009." He added.

Mare owners are also encouraged to make sure that the stallions of their choice are nominated. Because the eligible foals are shown as weanlings, it is always necessary to be nominating one year in advance. By doing so, breeders will know well in advance if they are choosing a nominated stallion. This opportunity for weanlings to earn prize money is one of the largest that the Morgan breed has to offer making eligibility quite important.

With just a short time left before the deadline, the entire committee would like to urge stallion owners to mail their contracts within the next week. Stallion nominations for the 2011 gala event will be accepted through January 2010. If you are interested in nominating your stallion and need a contract, it is not too late. You may download contracts at their web site or direct your request and questions to Larry Bolen at or Shanna Gish at Signed contracts are to be returned to Paulette Bodnar at the address listed on the contract.
