Not only does Nov. 29 mark the beginning of the NRHA Futurity, the annual Sire & Dam auction also starts on Thanksgiving. Running through 12 p.m. CST on Jan. 10, 2019, bidders can buy their lots through the online auction platform.
Starting bids for the auction are 60 percent of the originally advertised breeding fee or $500 (whichever is higher). Any unsold breedings in the auction are available afterward on a first-come, first-serve basis. All available breedings can be found here.
Created in 1966, the NRHA Sire & Dam program provides significant benefits to participants while helping support the NRHA. Featuring benefits for both stallion and mare owners, this program is the perfect addition to any breeding program. Mare owners have the opportunity to purchase breedings that they may not otherwise have access to at reduced rates.
Offspring resulting from the NRHA Sire & Dam program are automatically eligible to compete at both the NRHA Futurity and NRHA Derby without a nomination. Additionally, Sire & Dam offspring have reduced entry fees and later entry deadlines to the NRHA Futurity and NRHA Derby.
Stallion owners who wish to participate in this year’s auction can still donate to the program. For more information contact Lauren Loeliger, Sire & Dam Program Representative, at (405) 946-7400×133 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
