Q&A about Mare Power

What is Mare Power’s Bonus Money Program?


Mare Power was created to increase the value of a mare’s foals for selling purposes. This gives mare owners more opportunities to be eligible for added money and prizes, as well as the mare’s offspring being eligible for nomination.




What does it cost?


Broodmare registration is $100(per mare per year) and the mare will be put on our Mare Power List. Once a broodmare is registered, you must keep her registered yearly for $100 and this makes her foals eligible for nomination. Foal nomination is a 1 time fee of $150(if paid within 1 year of birth date) this fee is for the life of the offspring. Once 1 yr lapses nomination will cost $200. If you have a mare that you want to compete on and have her eligible for MP Bonus Money, that mare can be registered for $100, and then nominated for $150.  

*See rule #1 under To Nominate for clarification




What horses are eligible to compete for Mare Power’s Bonus Money?


  1. AQHA, APHA, ApHC, and Jockey Club
  2. Mares (being competed on)
  3. Offspring(mare, gelding, stallion) of MP registered mares




If I register my broodmare how many of her offspring can be nominated?


The first year a mare is registered in Mare Power, 15 offspring can be nominated for $150 each, and this includes ET foals. Every year after that 1 foal may be nominated, unless there are multiple foals via Embryo Transfer.



Who gets paid?


     70% to MP owner of nominated horse (on registration papers)

     20% to MP Dam owner (registered)

     10% to MP Breeder (listed on the registration papers)


**In order for Dam Owner and Breeder to be paid, Dam of nominated horse MUST BE REGISTERED IN MP. If Dam is not registered only MP owner will be paid and Dam owner/breeder money will be used at Mare Power LLC's discretion.


If I have a gelding or Stallion can he be eligible to run for Mare Power Bonus Money?


Yes. If your gelding/stallion was born of a MP registered mare. If the dam of your gelding/stallion has not been registered, but is still living she can be registered with Mare Power by her current owner. When she is registered, 15 of her offspring (regardless of age) can be nominated in the first year for $150 each (this nomination is good for life). In the event the dam is no longer living and has never been registered, she cannot be registered in Mare Power, which means your gelding/stallion is not eligible to compete for Mare Power Bonus Money.




If my Mare Power registered broodmare dies, but I have frozen embryos from her, how will this be handled?


You must continue to pay your registered mare’s yearly fee to keep her embryo foals eligible until those embryos are ready to be nominated.




What if my Mare Power registered broodmare dies and one of her nominated offspring wins MP Bonus money, who gets paid?


The owner of the offspring is paid, Mare (broodmare) owner who kept the mare registered yearly in MP (mare must be registered when money earning offspring was nominated), and the breeder one the registration papers.



Why will Mare Power make my nominated foal worth more?


From a selling stand point you have a nominated foal that is eligible to run for Mare Powers Bonus money for life.

Buyers stand point: If you are looking to buy a prospect and it comes down to two, prospect 1 who is by Y stallion(Incentive Stallion) and out of X mare. Prospect 2 is also by Y (Incentive Stallion) and out of Z mare who is a Mare Power Registered, and prospect is MP Nominated. Prospect 1 will be running at 1 incentive money, prospect 2 will be running at incentive money AND MP Bonus money. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to want to run at the most money I can, I would choose prospect 2.



Where will Mare Power be adding money?


We plan to have Mare Power Bonus Money at many Futurities, Derbies, and Open divisional barrel races. We will be adding MP Bonus Money at a lot of bigger sanctioned barrel races as enrollment increases.

Registering a broodmare costs $100 and $100 each year to remain registered.

The first year a mare is registered, 15 of her previous foals can be nominated within that first year at $150 each. This program is available to a limited number of 1000 mares; once we are full all other mares will be put on a waiting list. We will review adding more mares that following year. Once a mare drops off our list, and is later added she DOES NOT have the option of having multiple foals nominated under her UNLESS they are from an Embryo Transfer. She will also drop to a waiting list if all slots are full. If a mare is put on a waiting list and we decide to allow more mares, mares on the waiting list will have first chance at those spots. A front/back copy of registration papers MUST be on file with Mare Power, showing current owner. If a Mare Power Registered mare is sold, the new owner can keep her registered in Mare Power as long as her registration is paid the following year. *Mare Power will need a new copy of registration papers showing the CURRENT owner of mare. If a mare is dropped from our broodmare list due to non renewal of registration, the mare can be registered again only IF there is an open slot. If a mare dies the owner has the option of placing another mare on the list in her slot for another registration fee of $100, unless the mare died with in 30 days of being registered for the year. In the event that a broodmare dies and her offspring continue to win money after her death, MP will pay “dam owner” who last kept the mare registered. The broodmare HAS to be registered when offspring is nominated. MP must have documentation of the broodmare’s death for our records. Owner will have the option of adding another mare in her spot. You must continue to pay your registered mare’s yearly fee to keep her embryo foals eligible until those embryos are ready to be nominated.
