The 2023 NRHA Sire & Dam Stallion Auction Is Underway

Everyone loves a win-win, and the NRHA Sire & Dam program is one of the best! The 2023 Sire & Dam online auction features 100+ of the top stallions in the industry and is the only stallion program that grants resulting offspring automatic eligibility, reduced entry fees, and later entry deadlines to the NRHA Futurity and Derby.

Since 1966, the Sire & Dam program has provided significant value to participants while helping to support the NRHA. Featuring benefits for stallion and mare owners alike, 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 before they even hit 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 and Derby
  • Sire & Dam offspring eligibility remains with the foal even if it is sold

Stallion owners who donate a breeding to the Sire & Dam auction reap the benefit of enhanced promotion through program advertising and a listing 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, whether through the auction or as a private sale, and anyone interested in participating can contact NRHA Sire & Dam program director Haley Carmen at or visit the Sire & Dam page for more information.

“We are so excited to be able to offer these incentives to those who purchase a breeding through the Sire & Dam program,” Carmen said. “The added value and benefits to the resulting foals are unparalleled in the industry.”
