Sweepstakes classes are held at the All American Horse Classic in Indianapolis, IN, in September and are conducted under the rules of the United States Equestrian Federation. Sweepstakes differ from futurity programs in that nominations for sires, dams and weanlings are not required. The horse is nominated as a yearling to the two- and three-year-old sweepstakes and is nominated to the four-year-old sweepstakes in its three-year-old year.
