Kentucky - no. Elite or less-than-elite stallions have no bearing on this whatsoever
The JC needs to state that "AI is now permitted" and then leave it up to the individuals stallion owners as to whether they want to go ALL
AI, part AI breedings, or "0" AI breedings.
Many may simply say they don't want the expense to outfit their farms with the necessary equipment, they don't want to learn the procedures, their stallion is too old and set in his ways to learn to jump up on a plastic mare
or a myriad of other reasons and that's all fine. But simply give those who WANT
to use AI as a method of breeding registerable TB's the option to do so and it may end up being 25% or the market switches over of 50% or less than 10%. Who the heck knows or cares, but at least make the option available for those that want it
And no - it would never be based on how much a stallion has earned or stands for. It would be up to the individual owners and that's it
