What is the prize money payout offered from ASR Grand National?
In ASR Grand National yearling classes, five places are paid – 1st = $300, 2nd = $200, 3rd = $100, 4th = $100, and 5th = $100. In all other classes, pleasure and performance, three places are paid – 1st = $300, 2nd = $200, and 3rd = $100.
Are there additional payouts offered by ASR Grand National?
Yes! The person who pays the fee to record a horse in ASR Grand National will receive a 1/3 payback every time the horse wins prize money from the ASR Grand National program. If the horse is sold, the original recorder will continue to receive this payback every time the horse places and wins money in a ASR Grand National class. This means once you record a horse, even though you may no longer own the horse, you will receive a check for 1/3 of whatever the recorded horse’s ASR Grand National winnings are, whenever they happen, for the lifetime of the horse and the program.
The nominator of a stallion earns the same 1/3 payback every time one of the Nominated Sire’s get wins ASR Grand National prize money. The more foals by the nominated sire recorded in ASR Grand National, the greater the sire nominator’s earnings are likely to be.
If the nominated sire is sold, you continue to win ASR Grand National prize money. Since a nominated sire is also a recorded ASR Grand National show horse, the new owner would receive any prize money the stallion won by showing in a ASR Grand National class, but you would receive the 1/3 payback as the original recorder of the stallion. In addition, you, as the sire nominator, retain the right to 1/3 of the total winnings of the stallion’s ASR Grand National recorded get, unless otherwise negotiated at the time of the sale.
How is the prize fund established?
The prize fund is made up of all the money collected from foal recordings and stallion nominations. In addition, any prize money not paid out in 2011 will be added to the 2012 prize fund.
How are the shows and classes selected?
The criteria that helps us determine the schedule includes the classes that have been held in previous years from specific regions and input from the competitions hosting ASR Grand National classes. Since we are not able to offer a class in each division in every region of the country, we do try to give everyone a chance to show his or her ASR Grand National recorded horse at some point during the horse’s show career.
How do I know whether my horse is ASR Grand National recorded?
If you are not sure whether your horse is ASR Grand National recorded, please check your ASR Certificate of Registration for ASR Grand National eligibility, the horse search feature on the ASHA Web site.
