Race Name Horses Eligible
Minnesota Stallion Breeders’ Futurity 17
2014 Stallion Auction
MQHRA’s stallion auction is over, but opportunities are still available to buy unsold nominated stallions (at the minimum bid price), nominate stallions not in the auction ($500 or 25% of advertised breeding fee) or owners of nominated stallions may pay up stallions that did not sell (for $200 each) so the get from all these stallions will be eligible for the 2017 Minnesota Stallion Breeders’ Futurity.
Check out stallions remaining at: mqhra.auctionanything.com
Canterbury Park 2014
Update: Effective April 1, 2014 all horses entering the grounds must be vaccinated between 14 and 60 days prior to entry for equine herpes virus (EHV-1). This must be documented on the accompanying Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (health certificate).
The change noted above in the vaccination requirements for horses coming into Canterbury Park is due to the EHV-1 cases that are being reported in Minnesota over the last month. While the vaccine may not prevent neurological disease it does significantly decrease shedding and provides some herd immunity (sort of like influenza in people) – and we basically have a herd on the backside. This measure was just announced April 1, 2014.
Letters are in the mail with stall allocations for trainers that applied for stalls in 2014. Stalls were again this year restricted somewhat due to not having enough available stalls for the number of stalls being requested.
2014 Stallion Auction is currently Running, Stallions are still being accepted for information:
