RELEASE: November 25, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Jessica Fisher
The deadline for nominating stallions to the American Saddlebred Registry (ASR) Grand National in order for all 2008 foals to be eligible for lifetime recording is Monday, December 1, 2008, with a 10-day grace period deadline of Thursday, December 11, 2008.
A new lifetime Grand National stallion nomination fee schedule, based on the number of mares bred, is an inducement to recruit new stallions into the program. Stallions by a Grand National-nominated sire, or (even if by a non-nominated sire) the stallion is himself already Grand National recorded, who reported breeding to 10 or fewer mares in the preceding year may now be nominated for a lifetime fee of $500. Other such breeding stallions may be nominated for $750.
For stallions having bred 11-24 mares, the fees for nomination will be $1,000 and $1,500 respectively. For stallions having bred 25 or more mares, the fees will be $2,500 and $3,000 respectively. The fee for recording a weanling is $250.
All owners, original recorders, and sire nominators must be active members of the American Saddlebred Horse Association at the time of the competition to receive prize money.
