Arabian Breeders Sweepstakes--The Marketing Force Behind Your Horse
Looking for the right stallion to bring out the best in your future foal? If you're hoping for a champion show horse and would like to increase your foal's value, consider breeding your mare to an Arabian Breeders Sweepstakes Nominated Stallion. Any Arabian or Half-Arabian foal sired by a Nominated Sire can be enrolled in-utero as a Breeding Entry for only $400. This makes your horse eligible to win up to $4 million in prize money paid out annually in designated regional and national Sweepstakes classes for his entire lifetime. Close to $3 million is paid at the 18 regional shows and rides to top five winners, and more than $800,000 is paid to top tens at Canadian and U.S. Nationals.
By breeding to a Nominated Sire, you increase your odds of producing a marketable foal. Book your mare to one of the industry's top sires this season, and you'll be setting your foal up for success by increasing his lifetime earning potential.
Breeders interested in producing a quality Half-Arabian have the option of breeding their Arabian mare to a Non-Arabian Nominated Sire. Foals sired by a Non-Arabian Nominated Sire can be enrolled in-utero as Breeding Entries and reap the benefits of the Sweepstakes payback program.
For a current list of Nominated Sires and designated Sweepstakes payback events, or to sign up online, go to ArabianHorses.org/Activities and click on Prize Money Programs.
