4-YEAR-OLD POT OF GOLD

MMHBF ALUMNI AWARDS

MMHBF BREEDER’S AWARD

 

honoring morgan breeders since 1955

To be awarded to the 4-year-old Morgan Futurity horses who have accumulated the highest numbers of points in Morgan “Futurity” classes.

To remain eligible to receive a Pot of Gold award for accumulated points at graduation, a horse must continue to be nominated, not necessarily shown, every year from weanling through its 4-year-old year.

Pot of Gold points are assigned as follows:

For “Futurity” non-championship in-hand classes:

1st = 6 pts
2nd = 5 pts
3rd = 4 pts
4th = 3 pts
5th = 2 pts
6th = 1 pt

For Morgan “Futurity” performance classes, DOUBLE POINTS will be awarded.

For combined-age non-championship classes, the points for each age group will be assigned separately.

For Morgan “Futurity” in-hand championships, the Champion will receive 12 points; the Reserve Champion, 10 points.

Any Points earned by nominated horses in their first or any successive Futurity show will accumulate until their Class “graduates” at the conclusion of the show of their 4-year-old year. The 4-year-old with the highest number of Points will be named the Futurity Champion of its graduating class.

The “Pot of Gold” (prize money) for the graduating class will then be divided and awarded as follows:

Champion – 40%
Reserve Champion – 25%
Third Place – 20%
Fourth Place – 15%

The “Pot of Gold” for each graduating class is a cumulative total calculated by adding 20% of the Futurity nomination fees and 20% of the Futurity class entry fees paid each year for the members of that class.

To maintain eligibility to receive a Pot of Gold award, a horse must continue to be nominated, not necessarily shown, every year through its 4-year-old year. 

Any Morgan Futurity ALUMNI horse receiving a FIRST PLACE RIBBON in one the 12 double-asterisked (**) classes will also be awarded a Futurity Alumni plate.

To be awarded to the Morgan BREEDER having the highest number of points earned by the breeder’s Futurity horses entered in classes designated as Morgan “Futurity.”

1st = 8 pts
2nd = 7 pts
3rd = 6 pts
4th = 5 pts
5th = 4 pts
6th = 3 pts
7th = 2 pts
8th = 1 pt

Note: BREEDER is defined as the owner or lessee of the dam at the time of breeding and, for registered horses, appears on the registration certificate in the “Bred By” section.

The MMHBF Breeder for the current year’s show will receive a framed certificate and commemorative plate.
