LEXINGTON, KY―The Breeders’ Cup issued a reminder today that Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m. EST 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.

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 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.
