Any stallion owner not making the payment of $300 by January 31 can be eligible to the program with the late payment of
$500 anytime after January 31 to December 1, 2009.
Payment to the 2009 Manitoba Sire Program allows all of the stallion’s offspring born in 2010 eligibility into the $30,000
Frank Arnason Sire Stake for 3 year old colts and geldings and the $30,000 Hazel Wright Sire Stake for 3 year old
Only foals born in Manitoba sired by stallions registered to the program and out of mares that stay in the province year
round are eligible to either division of the $20,000 Gold Strike Mile.
Payment also qualifies the stallion owner to earn stallion points in the resulting foals two, three, four and five year old
race seasons. Beginning in 2009 stallion points and breeder points will be awarded to the breeder and stallion owner
of a horse finishing first, second and third in all stake races regardless of age.
Non-Manitoba resident breeders who breed to Manitoba registered stallions and foal their mares in Manitoba are
eligible to earn breeder points.
In order for the CTHS office to be informed of non resident mare owners who breed to Manitoba registered stallions
in 2009, and first time breeders, please call or fax the CTHS office with the name of the mare owner and their address.
New breeders don’t appear on the CTHS membership until they register their foal, therefore causing some of them to
miss making the in utero stake nominations.
