HOW TO EARN YOUR BREEDING RIGHT
To participate in the Spendthrift Share the Upside program the breeder will:
pay a $100 one-time deposit
stands and nurses contracts (2014
your mare(s) in 2014
Have live foal each year and pay stud fee of $3,500 each
It’s that simple!
our free breeding right begins in 2016 and continues throughout the
breeding life of the stallion. Once you have earned your Lifetime Breeding Right, there are
no expenses to you at all associated with the care and advertising of the stallion.
Dear Maryland Breeder,
Spendthrift Farm is especially proud to introduce the Share the Upside Program to Maryland for the first time in
2014 with our new Graded Stakes-Winning stallion
, a top son of Maryland’s former champion
freshman sire Malibu Moon. This is not by accident, as Spendthrift was determined to bring Maryland breeders the
right stallion prospect by Malibu Moon, whose successful career at stud would not have been possible without the
early faith from the breeders of Maryland. There has never been a better time to breed in Maryland, with Breeder
and Owner bonuses going to 30% for all MD-breds who finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd in all races at Maryland tracks.
In the normal market for young stallions, the stud farm receives cash until the stallion proves successful or
unsuccessful. If the stallion is successful, the stud farm reaps the benefits but the breeders who helped make
the stallion don’t see the same rewards. I have decided to make the playing field more level for our customers.
We started the Share The Upside Program in 2009 with INTO MISCHIEF
, who has emerged as one of the
leading young sires in North America with GOLDENCENTS (G1), VYJACK (G2) and five-time Louisiana stakes
winner SITTIN AT THE BAR in his first crop. We could not be happier for our breeders who were the inaugural
partners in the Share The Upside Program, and now have earned a lifetime breeding right to Into Mischief for the
remainder of his long and promising career at stud.
Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with the program, it is very simple and straightforward. If you have
any questions don’t hesitate to call Ken, Des, or Mark.
