Nominations

Only five events in the SIM require a nomination fee beforehand. Nominations run Monday - Sunday of the week they are open except for the Pegasus, which ends on Friday nights.

Triple Crown
The American Triple Crown for three-year-old Thoroughbreds is run Weeks 6, 7 and 9 in Kentucky, Maryland and New York. Two-year-olds can be nominated during Week 15 for $5,000 each in an early nomination period. During Week 1 of their three-year-old year, they can be late nominated for $50,000. If both of these periods are missed, the horse is ineligible for the Triple Crown. Standard rules regarding entry fees, shipping, and order of getting into the race still apply.
