The MTA’s 2018 Stallion Service Auction will be held online at www.thoroughlybred.com from January 15 – 21, 2018. A Book II Auction will be held from January 29 – February 10, 2018. Our Stallion Auction Representatives have begun their recruiting efforts and we anticipate that the special incentives being offered will help us create another successful auction!
The MTA offered two terrific incentives for stallion owners in 2018. A $10,000 bonus that will be shared if the horse that wins the 2022 MTA Stallion Auction Stakes is the result of a breeding purchased during this auction. The stallion owner, who donates the season, and the mare owner, who purchases the season, will share the bonus when that particular 2019 foal wins the race, or finishes second or third! Mare owners will name the mare by October 31, 2018, and nominate the 2019 foal to the 2022 MTA Stallion Auction Stakes.
When a Minnesota-bred wins, places or shows in the 2022 MTA Stallion Auction Stakes, there will be an additional $5,000 bonus that will be shared between the owners.
We also offering a new profit-sharing program for stallion owners! In an effort to bring better, higher priced stallions to our auction, the MTA offered stallion owners a percentage of the final bid, based on the stallion’s 2018 published stud fee.
