This year, a total of $40,000 will be offered from the Kentucky Breeders Incentive Fund for the top three highest placed Kentucky-bred American Saddlebreds nominated to compete in the 2015 ASR Four-Year-Old Sweepstakes classes at the World’s Championship Horse Show, August 22-29, 2015. A total of 70% will be awarded to the breeder and 30% to the stallion owner (at the time of service). To be eligible for the added incentive fund, a horse must meet certain criteria including being foaled in Kentucky, sired by a stallion standing in Kentucky at the time of service and bred by a Kentucky resident. Kentucky Saddlebred Owners and Breeders Association (KSOBA) membership is required prior to competing.
The Two and Three-Year-Old Sweepstakes classes are held at the All American Horse Classic in Indianapolis, Indiana.
