The only foals that can be nominated "normally" are current weanlings (2012 foals, in this case).  In order for them to qualify, their sires must have been BC nominated last year (to cover this year's crop).

If you're nominating older foals, or foals whose sires weren't BC nominated, you'll need to use the supplemental nomination page.

Shanthi,

I know that this is kind of early to be thinking about this, but, when is the earliest that you can nominate a Stallions foal crop for the Breeder's Cup for a year? Is it Jan 1st of the year or will it start before then?

Having just purchased my first stallion, I want to ensure that his future foal crops will all be BC eligible.

I see that the nomination fees are $5,000 for an individual foal, or $100,000 for a full years crop. Have you ever thought about doing something like $500,000 (say) for a lifetime nomination for a stallion's foals? Obviously, only the biggest Studs would be able to do this. Just a thought for you to ponder.

It's $5,000 for a foal AND $100,000 for the crop.  The stallion owner has to nominate the crop, and then the foal owner has to pay the $5,000 for the individual horse to be nominated.

And no, I have never considered a lifetime registration.  I am (roughly) following the RL Breeders' Cup rules for nominating stallions/foals.

Nominations open Jan 1, I believe.
