Penn Ridge Farms will offer an incentive program for incoming stallion Monba. The farm will pay to the breeder of record of the foals of 2011 sums of $10,000 for the first maiden special weight winner, $15,000 for the first allowance winner, and $25,000 for the first stakes winner.
“We want to present an achievable incentive program that will truly reward the breeders for their efforts,” said general manager Patrick Morell.
Five-year-old Monba (Maria's Mon--Hamba, by Easy Goer) won the 2008 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) at Keeneland and twice was graded stakes-placed. His fee is $5,000 live foal, or $4,000 live foal for Pennsylvania-breds.
Penn Ridge is owned by Michael W. Jester and is located near Harrisburg, Pa. For complete details about the incentive program, contract www.pennridgefarms.com.
