Breeders’ Cup Late Foal Nomination Deadline Closes February 28  

Breeders’ Cup Press Release

LEXINGTON, Ky.— The Breeders’ Cup issued a reminder today that Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m. ET is the last opportunity to nominate foals born in 2023 to the Breeders’ Cup program for a one-time late nomination fee of $1,500 USD.

The $1,500 nomination entitles each foal with lifetime eligibility to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and the Breeders’ Cup racing programs. All foals sired by a fully nominated North American Breeders’ Cup stallion are eligible for nomination to the Breeders’ Cup program in their year of birth and up to Feb. 28 of their yearling year.

Breeders’ Cup Limited has been Thoroughbred racing’s most significant international program for over 40 years. During this time, Breeders’ Cup has allocated purses and awards of more than $900 million to owners, foal nominators, and stallion nominators through its programs, including the annual $31 million Breeders’ Cup World Championships showcasing the best Thoroughbreds, owners, trainers, and jockeys to a global audience.

Breeders’ Cup foal nominators will earn $10,000 for every victory in the worldwide Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series: Win and You’re In, and every horse that starts in a Breeders’ Cup World Championship race will earn a nominator award. The individual nominating the foal receives these nominator awards even though the horse may change hands throughout its racing career.
