BID EARLY! BID OFTEN! BID LAST!
Bidding for the MTA Stallion Auction will end at 9:00 p.m. (CST) on January 12, 2019
During the 2019 Auction, stallion owners and mare owners purchasing a season during the MTA Stallion Auction will be eligible for a $10,000 bonus!
The bonuses will be paid to the winner of the 2023 MTA Stallion Auction Stakes. $5,000 will be shared by the Owner or Syndicate donating the stallion season to the MTA’s 2019 Stallion Auction and finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd. $5,000 will be shared by the mare owner who purchased the stallion season at the 2019 MTA Stallion Auction and finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd. The mare owner will notify the MTA Office and name the mare bred by 10/31/19. Should the resulting foal be sold, prior to the 2023 MTA Stallion Auction Stakes, bonus eligibility will remain with the breeder.
When a Minnesota-bred places 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the 2023 MTA Stallion Auction stakes, the owners of those horses will share an additional $5,000 bonus.
The entire 2020 foal crop of each stallion selling during the 2019 Stallion Auction is eligible to be nominated to the 2023 MTA Stallion Auction Stakes - regardless of where they are born!
Minnesota is a terrific place to foal and raise your 2020 baby! To be certified as a Minnesota-bred, in-foal mares need to be in Minnesota and registered with the Minnesota Racing Commission prior to foaling or by March 15th at the latest. Stallions must be registered with the MRC by January 31st. Full details on Minnesota’s Breeders’ Fund Program and registration forms are available at https://www.mrc.state.mn.us/breeders-fund/.
Please be sure to read the following information carefully to insure that you understand all of the guidelines and benefits of our auction. Unfortunately we've been forced to develop strict policies regarding non-payment on winning bids. We've experienced too many instances where individuals have placed the winning bid and refused to make payment or required a great deal of extra work to ultimately receive the payment. We appreciate those bidders who are prompt and follow the rules!
Bid Early! Bid Often! And, most importantly, BID LAST!
