If you’ve ever bred and consigned a horse to a sale, generally you receive a check for the final bid, less the sale company’s commission, and you make a deposit to your bank account. If you consigned a yearling to the 2016 MTA Yearling Sale or the 2017 sale, you might be receiving a second check, for $1,000 or $2,000!
Congratulations to Jeffrey Kerber, breeder of Familiar Rhythm, who will be receiving a check for $1, 000 following a big win in the 2017 MTA Sale Graduate Futurity. Familiar Rhythm, a 2015 colt by Algorithms out of I Know You Know, was purchased by Dale Schenian at the MTA’s 2016 Yearling Sale. Trained by Francisco Bravo, Familiar Rhythm broke his maiden and earned his breeder a $1,000 bonus on July 29, 2017. Wood-Mere Farm served as agent for Mr. Kerber during the 2016 MTA Sale.
The MTA Sale Incentive will be paid to winning 2016 Sale Grads and is being offered for those yearlings selling during the August 21st, 2017 MTA Yearling Sale as well!
The breeder of each MN-bred yearling, who consigns the yearling to the MTA Yearling Sale, and sells to a new owner during the auction, will receive a Yearling Sale Graduate Breeder’s Bonus when the MTA Sales Grad breaks its maiden in a Maiden Special Weight or Allowance race. The Sales Grad must break its maiden at Canterbury Park. The bonus will be paid to the breeder within 30 days of the race as follows:
Minnesota Conceived and Foaled MTA Sale Grads
- Breeder will receive a $2,000 bonus.
- Stallion Owner, when foal was conceived, will receive a $1,000 bonus.
Minnesota-bred MTA Sale Grads
- Breeder will receive a $1,000 bonus.
The yearling must sell to a new owner during the auction. Buybacks, horses that do not meet a written reserve, horses that do not receive a bid or do not sell to a new owner during the auction for whatever reason, will not be eligible for this incentive.
It’s exciting to see our MTA Sales Grads on the track and even more exciting to see them winning! We look forward to presenting many more awards to our future winners! While our 2017 MTA Yearling Sale is full, we hope you’ll consider consigning to future sales as the incentives are tremendous!
