Breeders’ Cup Extends Late Nomination Deadline For 2020 Foals To Feb. 28

In advance of the major Thoroughbred auctions scheduled in January and February of next year, the Breeders’ Cup today announced that it has extended the late nomination deadline for all 2020 North American foals to Feb. 28, 2021.

This late foal nomination will be the last opportunity for horsemen to nominate weanlings of 2020 to the Breeders’ Cup program at a fee of $1,500 USD.

The $1,500 nomination entitles each foal with lifetime racing eligibility to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and the Breeders’ Cup racing programs. All foals sired by a fully-nominated North American Breeders’ Cup stallion are eligible for nomination to the Breeders’ Cup program in their year of birth and now up to Feb. 28 of their yearling year.

“We want to provide buyers and sellers the Breeders’ Cup Advantage for yearlings, either sold or purchased in January and February, to become fully-nominated individuals to the Breeders’ Cup program,” said Dora Delgado, Breeders’ Cup Executive Vice President and Chief Racing Officer.

Nomination fees for 2020 foals not nominated to the Breeders’ Cup program by Feb. 28 will be increased to $12,000 USD for an individual sired by a Breeders’ Cup-nominated stallion and to $18,000 USD for an individual sired by a non-nominated stallion before July 15 through the racehorse nomination program.

Breeders’ Cup Limited has been Thoroughbred racing’s most significant national and international program for over 37 years. During this time, the organization has allocated purses and awards in excess of $860 million to owners, foal nominators and stallion nominators through the programs of the Breeders’ Cup including the annual $31 million Breeders’ Cup World Championships.

In addition to the racing benefits, in 2021, Breeders’ Cup foal nominators are also eligible for special bonuses. Foal nominators will receive $10,000 USD for every victory in a Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” race. Moreover, foal nominator awards are available on every Breeders’ Cup World Championships race for every starter. The individual nominating the foal receives these nominator awards even though the horse may change hands throughout its racing career.
