The Iowa Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association is conducting an online auction of seasons to more than 100 stallions from 12 states. The auction begins Dec. 5 and closes at 7 p.m. (CDT) Monday, Dec. 14. A list of the stallions donated and details of the auction can be found here.
Proceeds from the online auction will fund three stakes races for all 2022 offspring of stallions whose seasons are sold at this auction: The 2024 Stallion Futurity and two 2025 Stallion Stakes races for 3-year-olds, one for colts and one for fillies. A $5,000 bonus will be paid to the winner of any of the three races if the foal is conceived from a breeding season purchased at the auction. Donators of stallion seasons are also eligible to receive a $5,000 per race bonus.
