What could be better than access to the top stallions in the industry starting at just 60% of their advertised breeding fees? Automatic eligibility to enter the NRHA Futurity and NRHA Derby (no nomination required), reduced entry fees, and later entry deadlines!
There is no better opportunity for a Futurity-bound foal than Sire & Dam. With a lineup of over 100 premier stallions, Sire & Dam is the only stallion program offering NRHA major event benefits.
Since 1966, the Sire & Dam program has delivered substantial value to its participants while contributing to the support of NRHA. It’s the perfect addition to any breeding program. Mare owners can purchase breedings they may not otherwise have access to, often at reduced rates.
Offspring produced from the program have added value even before hitting the ground. Some of those benefits include:
- No nomination to the NRHA Futurity and Derby required; resulting foals are automatically eligible
- Reduced entry fees (up to 50%) to the NRHA Futurity and Derby
- Later entry deadlines for the NRHA Futurity
- Sire & Dam offspring eligibility remains with the horse even if it is sold
Stallion owners who contribute a breeding to the Sire & Dam auction receive promotion through program advertising and inclusion in the NRHA stallion directory. They also become eligible for NRHA Futurity and Derby sire incentives including cash awards.
There’s still time to enroll a stallion in the Sire & Dam program for 2024, whether through the auction or as a buyback, and anyone interested in participating can contact NRHA Sire & Dam program director Haley Carmen at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Sire & Dam page for more information.
To view and bid on participating stallions, visit the Sire & Dam auction at reiningauction.com.
Mare owners are encouraged to contact the participating stallion owners or agents to ask about additional fees before purchasing. Winning bidders will be notified by email after the auction closes on January 8. After the conclusion of the auction, stallions will be available through the breeding season at 60% of their advertised fee (minimum of $500).
