Morgan Weanling Gala Stallion Nominations for 2011 Competition



Perrysburg, Ohio – A little more than a month ago, we were pleased to crown the first Morgan Weanling Gala champion and announce the very successful inaugural event held at the Morgan Jubilee. "We were so thrilled with our first class and received many compliments and suggestions for future events." stated Gala chairman Larry Bolen. "As premiums go in the mail and plans for the 2010 class at the New England Regional already well underway, it is time to begin collecting nominations for the 2011 class." Bolen shared.

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. "Next year’s breeding season will be here soon and those breedings have earning potential, if the stallions are nominated to The Morgan Weanling Gala. We hope to have even more stallion owners and breeders will get involved." Bolen concluded. The payouts are based on percentages of total monies collected, meaning more prize money will be distributed as the number of nominated stallions increases. The nomination fee is $3,000 for new stallions and $2,700 for stallions nominated for 2010. A payment schedule is available and nominations are due December 1, 2009. All major credit cards will be accepted as well as checks for payment. Committee members will have contracts available at the Morgan Grand National or they can be downloaded 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.
