The 2009 Hawki Futurity will be held in Lincoln NE at the Lancaster Event Center Oct 9-11, 2009.
The HFBI (Hawki Futurity Breeders Incentive) will double their purse in 2009 by opening up to 50 stallions (currently 30) (those on the current list have the first chance to renew) making the HFBI purse $10,000 in 2009. Current stallion owners have until Dec 15, 2009 to send a $25 deposit to hold their spot for the new year.
Stallion nominations for this program will open to the public Dec 15 and have the following payment schedule Jan 1, 2009 $125 due, Feb 1, 2009 $50 due, Mar 1 $50 due, April 1 $50 due (those paying in full by Jan 1, 2009 receive a $25 discount). With the newly designed program and returning stallions (and double the purse money) we expect a huge response to this program so stallion owners should not delay in returning their applications. Applications and website will be updated by Nov 1, 2008.
Horses entered in the open futurity sired by nominated stallions will automatically be eligible for the $10,000 breeders purse (with no extra entry fee).
The Open Futurity will have $4500 added and continued incentives for amateur, rookie, 4 yr old horse and new for 2009 $500 incentive to Iowa owned, Iowa bred, Iowa rider.
We hope the changes will continue to grow this event, which has outgrown the facility in Iowa and we're excited to double the breeder’s incentive pot and bring more added money to this futurity which was established in 2001.
Watch for updates to website coming Nov 1, 2008.
