Stallion owners are encouraged to promote the stallion’s Morgan Weanling Gala eligibility and inform mare owners of the class and its location.

Entry fee is $250.00. Entries are due on or before closing date of entries for the Jubilee Morgan Horse Show. Post entries are accepted after closing date of entries until 3 p.m. of the day preceding the class at additional post entry fee of $250.00.

Entries must meet all requirements of the MWG and MUST be made on the official entry form of the Jubilee Morgan Horse Show and returned to the show secretary.
No refunds of entry fees will be made without a Vet’s certificate.

MWG PAYOUT FORM
All owners must have completed and returned the MWG Payout Form in order to receive potential prize money.

REGISTRATION
Any entry placing 1st through 10th in the Morgan Weanling Gala class must be registered with the American Morgan Horse Association. If the entry is not yet registered, it will be DNAed immediately following the class. This DNA may be used in the registration of the entry. The DNA fee and any applicable veterinary fees will be deducted from that entry’s prize money. All prize money recipients will have to be DNA verified if they are not previously registered. No payout of awards can be made until all ten winners have been registered with AMHA.

ENTRY LIST
A numerical list of entries, order of appearance, sire and dam listing, and owner/handler information will be provided to the exhibitors and spectators by the Morgan Weanling Gala

JUDGING PROCEDURE
The Morgan Weanling Gala will be conducted with three Judges officiating based on the MOS System.

The three-judge panel will consist of the judge selected by the Jubilee Morgan Horse Show plus two judges selected by the MWG. The judge selected by the Jubilee Morgan Horse Show shall act as Call Judge. USEF rules will prevail.

ORDER OF GO
Order of Go will be determined with a random drawing held after 3:00 PM on the day preceding the class. Any owner or trainer who is showing more than one entry and draws consecutive spots will be given a new draw.

HOW SHOWN
Each foal will individually enter the ring according to the Order of Go and be introduced with Name and Breeding and proceed to line-up on the rail as directed by the Ringmaster.

Each entry must be waiting at the in-gate for its turn.

Thereafter all entries will then be called forward to center ring and judged individually for conformation and at the trot.

Once all individuals have been individually judged, the Judging Panel may, at its discretion call out individuals for additional consideration.

When judging is completed the cards will then be tabulated and Champion through 10th place will be awarded in reverse order.

NET PAYOUT
The prize money payout will be determined by the number of stallions nominated for each year’s program and will be paid to the top ten winners and their sires as described below.

The total amount of prize money paid to the Top Ten placings shall be the sum of the Sire Nomination Fees received in that year (“Payout”). The Payout is distributed among the Top Ten placings according to the fixed Percentages indicated below with a fixed amount paid to the Sire Nominator and the variable balance paid to the Weanling.
