Return Services If a mare fails to produce a foal from this breeding, the foal from a rebreeding will be eligible for the subsequent World Show Incentive Classes. In the event 1) a mare fails to conceive, 2) death of a foal at time of foaling or 3) a foal is born with a genetic defect, the owner will notify the ApHC as well as the stallion owner with proper certification from a licensed veterinarian. Any arrangements for rebreeding are strictly between the stallion owner and mare owner.
Stallion Owner For each donated service that is sold, the stallion owner will receive a certificate from the ApHC which will entitle the owner to select one get (a foal owned by the stallion owner) of said stallion from the 2018 breeding season to be nominated for the Stallion Service Auction Incentive Classes. Payment of class entry fees will apply. There is no nomination fee for the stallion owner’s nominee, if the nomination is made by the September deadline of the weanling year. The stallion owner nomination certificate must be submitted to the ApHC by September 15th of the weanling year. If the “nomination certificate” is not submitted by the deadline, a late nomination fee will be assessed.
