Nominations of 2008 for the World Morgan Futurity

Don't procrastinate until the December 31, 2008 deadline--NOW is the time to nominate your 2008 Morgan foals, sires and dams for the World Morgan Futurity. If you have a Morgan foal that you hope will compete in our Morgan Grand National and World Championship Morgan Horse Show, have faith in your breeding program and nominate them now. Even if you don't feel your foal may compete as a yearling or two year old, they can still win substantial money as a three year old and in the four year old Alumni program. Having them World Futurity nominated adds value and marketability to your stock. Remember, there are NO BACK NOMINATIONS past their yearling years!

This year, the World Morgan Futurity paid out a record $285,160 to Morgan breeders. One breeder won over $10,000 for her Futurity yearling entry at the 2008 Grand National and World Championship Horse Show. One four year old Alumni dressage horse won over $7,000. The World Morgan Futurity PAYS YOU to promote your breeding program.

Next year's class will be ready to win even MORE money. Winning services on a stallion in the 2007 auction that resulted in a foal born in 2008 will be eligible next year as yearlings for the new Auction Rewards. On top of the regular Futurity money AND the added money from the 2009 AMHA/WMF Stallion Service auction, if an Auction Rewards eligible yearling wins a Futurity Yearling class in 2009, they are eligible for the Auction Rewards bonus of $10,000. If more than one eligible yearling wins, they will split the money equally. If no eligible yearlings top their classes, the money carries over to their two year old year, then putting five classes in the eligible pot for the money. If they do not win as two year olds, it carries over to their three year old year, where there are seven eligible classes. Again, if more than one eligible horse wins, the money is split. Once the $10,000 is won, the bonus is finished. If a three year old does not win the bonus, it will carry over into the Alumni Division.

Please make sure you note on your futurity entry that this is an auction bonus eligible foal.

Forms are available at or contact Barb Rudicel at or 765-749-3574 or Kelly McFaul at, or 316-650-2267.
