Buying Futurity Breedings

Here's a great question. With the stallions being nominated to the many futurities, would stallion owners allow a mare owner to pay for a futurity breeding a year before he nominates there again? He nominates every year. I have one stallion in the future I was wanting a couple breedings at different times. Do they usually do that? Take and hold the futurity payment and have it reserved? I really wanted to do that because this stallion is absolutely hard to get ahold of the futurity breedings. He's gone as fast as they nominate him. And he's a HOT stud on the market. Not his temperment though. He's a sweet horse from what I've heard and his foals are AWESOME!! I've been following him since he was two and just thought about it :)

A lot of it would depend on the futurity, I think. I have my stallion in one where if his futurity breeding sells, then I have the right to breed a mare and put that foal in the futurity also. So, as the stallion owner, I would be able to tell you that you could have a futurity breeding because if the donated one sold, I could sell you the breeding I'm entitled to use and just let the futurity board know I had sold my breeding to you. If the futurity you're talking about doesn't operate that way, then talk to the stallion owner about having him send in the breeding fee along with the futurity nomination, so that as he's nominating, the breeding is sold before it's posted, if he's willing to do that.

It is up to each organization as to what they will allow. Also what are you getting from that nominated stallion? A discounted breeding or just being allowed to show in that class. The only way to really know it to talk to the association that the breeding is for sale through and the stallion owner. Keep in mind that the stallion owner may not allow it regardless. If the stallion books full every year the add in rebreeds and such they need to account for every breeding and then to add one more into next years breeding book might not work.
