Color Class Stallion Service Sale
Stallions subscribed to VPHC's Color Classic Stallion Service Sale (CCSSS) are sold on a first come
first served basis for 50% of their advertised stud fee for 2018. The stallion owner will receive one free entry into
the breeders futurity to be used in 2018, and the resulting foal from the sold auction will receive a free entry to be used
up to its 3 year old year. If the stallion is not sold in the auction the stallion owner may pay a buy back / repurchase
fee and will receive the 2 free entries. All funds (100%) generated from the CCSSS are used
as incentives to Breeders Futurity classes held during VPHC's Fall Color Classic Futurity Paint-O-Rama.
Stallion owners will receive 10% of the purse earned by their progeny. For example, when a stallion's foal
earns $200 for their share of the class purse, the foal owner will receive $180 and the stallion owner will receive $20.
The amounts will be calculated per class.
