RELEASE: March 26, 2009
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Brice Carr
The 2009 American Saddlebred Registry (ASR) Futurity nomination forms and general provisions are now available on the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) website at www.asha.net/Prize-forms
. The deadline to nominate mares and stallions for 2009 foals is April 15, 2009.
This year’s nominations consist of two new additions. Stallions and mares registered with any foreign registry approved by ASR will now be accepted for sire and dam nominations. If registered with an approved foreign registry, a copy of the stallion’s and/or mare’s registration certificate must be submitted with the nomination.
A three-gaited park class has also been added to the National Three-Year-Old Futurity. Beginning in 2012, the National Three-Year-Old Futurity will be held in five sections: five-gaited, three-gaited, fine harness, three-gaited park and three-gaited park pleasure. These changes were recommended by the Kentucky & National Futurities Committee and approved by the ASHA Board of Directors.
Total prize money awarded in 2008 for the Kentucky, Kentucky Amateur, and National Three-Year-Old Futurities totaled $262,122, with the National Three-Year-Old Futurity reaching an all-time high, awarding more than $140,000, the most prize money awarded in over 30 years.
