Deadline to Nominate Weanlings to BC

The Breeders' Cup announced that the last opportunity to nominate weanlings of 2013 to the program for a one-time fee of $500 is 11:59 p.m. (ET) Tuesday, Oct. 15.

The $500 nomination entitles all those foals with lifetime 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 first year of birth.

In addition the racing benefits, in 2013, Breeders' Cup foal nominators earn $10,000 for every victory in a Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" race and are also eligible to win nominator awards in every Breeders' Cup World Championships race if the nominated horse places first, second, or third. The individual nominating the foal receives these nominator awards even though the horse may change hands throughout its racing career.
