ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR 2018 TEXAS THOROUGHBRED SALES FUTURITY
Foals of 2016
Fillies Division * Colts/Geldings Division
$100,000 estimated purse each division
2-Year-Olds * 5 furlongs * July 2018
Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie
Any foal of 2016 that passes thorough the ring in either the 2016 Texas Summer Yearling and Mixed Sale or the 2017 Texas Summer Yearling and Mixed Sale, or is consigned to and subsequently passes through the ring at the 2018 Texas 2-Year-Old In Training Sale at Lone Star Park will become eligible for nomination and sustainment to the appropriate division of the 2018 Texas Thoroughbred Sales Futurity.
For every horse that passed through the ring at the 2017 Texas Summer Yearling and Mixed Sale, each consignor and each buyer will receive a non-transferable berth into either division of the race. Any Thoroughbred foal of 2016 is eligible to be sold in the sales and nominated to the Futurity. Additional berths must be filled with an Accredited Texas-bred Thoroughbred foal of 2016 that did not pass through the ring at the 2016 Texas Summer Yearling and Mixed Sale or the 2017 Texas Summer Yearling and Mixed Sale by the December 31, 2017 nomination deadline. Once a designated horse is nominated to fill a berth, ownership of that horse may be transferred with the horse still remaining eligible for the 2018 Texas Thoroughbred Sales Futurity. Total payment to start in the 2018 Texas Thoroughbred Sales Futurity shall be no less than $2,250 per horse.
Horses filling consignor berths and buyer berths must be designated at the time the December 31, 2017 nomination payment is made. Berths are non-transferable and must be filled with an Accredited Texas-bred foal of 2016. There are no provisions covering substitution of a designated horse.
Consignor berths are for the owner of the selling horse at the time of the sale. Buyer berths are for the purchaser of the selling horse whose name the horse is transferred to at the time of sale. A photocopy of the front and back of The Jockey Club Certificate of registration must accompany nomination payment, or eligibility of that horse in the 2018 Texas Thoroughbred Sales Futurity may be refused.
