The Executive Committee of the FTBOA Board of Directors met on Tuesday, May 12. In light of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on public thoroughbred sales in Florida and across the country, the Executive Committee voted to add another payment option for the Florida Sire Stakes (FSS) yearling payment deadline for 2020. The current yearling deadline is May 15, 2020, for a payment of $250. 


The Executive Committee decided to change the $500 late yearling payment that would otherwise have been in effect from May 16 forward and to reduce it to only $275 for payments made from May 16 through August 15, 2020. This new deadline will fall after the OBS sales now scheduled for June and July in order to help those owners who had horses in the cancelled sales. The FSS late yearling payment of $500 will be in effect for payments made from August 16 through November 15, 2020.  




Yearlings - May 15 - $250
(or November 15 - $500 or January 15 - $5,000)


2-Year-Olds - January 15 - $250 *
(or February 28 - $500)*
* Previous yearling payment must have been made

Last Chance Payment
You have the option to pay $10,000 by May 1 of the horse's two-year old year regardless of any previous payment (the horse  must not have started)

Stallions - February 15 - $2,000
(or August 1 - $3,000 or November 15 - $10,000)

A horse may be listed as eligible in a sales catalog because the deadline was not missed at that point. Check to make sure the yearling payment was paid (see below by birth year) or contact FTBOA at 352-629-2160. Note there is still a 2YO payment also due.

* All terms of Florida Sire Stakes (FSS) races, including the number of races, purse levels, race conditions, racing dates, and the host track, may change from year to year and may change at any point after the FSS racing schedule for a particular year is announced.

Out-of-State Foal Eligibility

The FTBOA Board of Directors, at its regularly scheduled meeting on April 29, 2016, approved an expansion of the Florida Sire Stakes program that would make out-of-state foals eligible to participate in FSS stakes races under the following conditions:
• The horse must be sired by an FTBOA-registered Florida stallion that has paid double the FTBOA Florida stallion registration fee for the year the foal was conceived.
• All FSS eligibility payments must be made for the horse, at a rate double what would otherwise be paid for an FTBOA-registered Florida-bred, per the FSS payment schedule.
• The horse will race for 50% of the purse in each FSS stakes race. Currently (2016), the FSS stakes schedule includes a three-race series for 2-year olds (with a division for colts and a division for fillies) and races are typically held the first Saturday in August, September, and October.
This policy change responds to numerous member comments received in a variety of forums, the vast majority of which supported expanded FSS eligibility for out-of-state foals by Florida stallions.  As members may recall, starting with the foals of 2012, the FSS program transitioned from a track-based program of 30 years administered by Calder Race Course to a new program administered by the FTBOA.
