The Breeding Pays Futurity, initiated at the 2022 U.S. Nationals, awards payouts of $100,000 each (evenly split between owner & breeder), paid out in both the purebred Breeding Pays 2-Year-Old Futurity Filly class and the Breeding Pays 2-Year-Old Futurity Colt/Gelding class, with an additional payout of $30,000 per final class to the three highest placings through the Amateur Initiative (also evenly split between owner & breeder).
Nominations only permitted for foals sired by stallions nominated to the program.
Top Three highest ranked amateurs in finals class awarded:
Top highest $15,000
Second highest $10,000
Third highest $5,000
In order for an amateur to be eligible for amateur prize money, the amateur must show the same horse in the preliminaries and finals. All monies to amateurs will be split equally between the current owner and the breeder for each of the filly and colt/gelding classes.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Champions and Top Ten are awarded with an estimated payout for 2024 of $100,000 to be split equally between the current owner and the breeder for each of the filly and colt/gelding classes.
Payouts are as follows:
Gold Champion – $35,000
Silver Champion – $20,000
Bronze Champion – $10,000
4th–10th – Top Ten – $5,000 each.
In order to receive prize money payouts, horses must compete and be judged in the Finals. The winning horse owners must send the Breeding Pays Futurity a completed W9 form within 60 days of the completion of the show. If the W9 form is not received within that time, no payout will be issued.
