Gelding World Cup

Post by Laura Ferguson » 4 months ago

It's that time of year!, This year's Steward's Cup is in Toronto, so we’ll join in (any all weather races could be at Artificial Arena, mixers at Mixed Up Downs, harness at Chariot Expo and steeplechases at Horseshoe Valley). If people want to sponsor additional steeplechases/all weather/mixed breed races, please feel free - the more the merrier!

The dirt and turf races will once again be run on Week 16 THURSDAY, with the baby races. That gives them a little more attention, so they're not lost in the glom of Week 16 Friday races. The steeplechase and all weather races will be run on Week 16 MONDAY, and if anyone wants to sponsor a mixed breed/harness race, they'd obviously be on the Wednesday

Here are last year's races and sponsors - I'll let last year's sponsors have first crack at doing it again, but if for whatever reason, they can't/don't, I'll open them up for someone else to sponsor on Monday, May 11th (and feel free to downgrade/upgrade the stakes in terms of purse/grade; whatever works for your finances). As always, thanks for everyone's generosity. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks! Laura

You can sponsor a race even if you don't have any horses running in it - I sponsor the same three races every year, but I don't always have an entrant each year.

For the Gelding World Cup, the races are restricted to geldings. It looks like the leased horses you have are colts, so you would not be able to run them because they are colts (you can run leased geldings). Hope that helps!

New this year GWC Scary Cat for QH @ 650y in honor of one of my first nice horses and a all time favorite of mine: https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.php?HorseID=351853. Scary Cat at one time held the SIM race record at both 550 and 650y. He now lives the life of retirement as a stable pony.

Gotta say I'm flattered that you renamed the Juvenile Jubilee in my honor.
