April 15 Deadline for Futurity Sustaining Payment

For foals of 2014 already nominated to the 2016 Texas Thoroughbred Futurity, the final sustaining payment of $350 is due by Friday, April 15. That payment must be fax, credit card or postmark dated no later than April 15. Payments made after April 15 cannot be accepted. Reminder notices have been mailed.  Buyers at the upcoming 2YO Sale will be handed notice of this payment.

Those horses early nominated to the Futurity as graduates of the Texas Thoroughbred 2-Year-Old Sale that do not go through the ring at that sale are no longer eligible for the 2016 Texas Thoroughbred Futurity.

Friday, May 1st is the deadline for late nomination to the Texas Thoroughbred Futurity. Foals of 2014 that go through the ring at the 2016 Texas Thoroughbred 2YO Sale, and have not already been nominated to the Futurity, may be late nominated by payment of $5,000.  That payment must be fax, credit card or postmark dated no later than May 1. Nominations made after May 1 cannot be accepted.

The field for each division (fillies and colts/geldings) will be limited to twelve starters, who are determined by money earned. In order to give nominated horses ample opportunity for earnings and experience, Texas Thoroughbred Futurity nominees will have preferred entry in 2-year-old maiden races at Lone Star Park leading up to the 2016 Futurity.

Both divisions of the 2016 Texas Thoroughbred Futurity will be run on July 9 with entries taken the previous Wednesday. There is a $500 entry fee and $1000 start fee that will be deducted from your horseman’s account at Lone Star Park.
