To Purchase A Breeding
NRHA Sire & Dam Program contracts are sold on a first come, first serve basis. To make a purchase, simply send either a check to the NRHA office noting which stallion you would like to purchase or call with credit card information. Credit card transactions will incur a 3.5% processing fee.
It is the mare owner's responsibility to pay any other fees associated with the breeding. The NRHA strongly suggests that mare owners contact participating stallion owners/agents to inquire about such fees prior to purchasing the breeding through the NRHA Sire & Dam Program.
The online auction runs from November 28 - January 10. THE AUCTION WILL CLOSE ON JANUARY 10, 2017 AT NOON CST. Once the auction results have been verified, winning bidders will be notified by email.
Stallions not enrolled in the auction will be sold on a first come, first serve basis for 60% of their 2017 advertised breeding fee. These breedings will be available beginning October 2.
Stallions not sold during the auction will be placed on the available list following verification of the auction results.

What Participants Have To Say
"I've been involved with the Sire & Dam Program since its inception. In the early years, the Program was a real lifesaver for the NRHA. From the beginning until the present, it has been an asset to the industry. Unlike other programs, it has always worked."
"In my opinion the Sire & Dam Program is one of the best offered. It didn't cost me any out of pocket money to participate. It was such a thrill when the NRHA Sire & Dam Program presented me with a check for more than $33,000 for owning the sire of the 2001 NRHA Open Futurity Champion. I felt as though I had just won the Futurity myself . . . I wish more of the breeding programs would reward donating stallion owners."
"The NRHA Sire & Dam Program is the greatest thing going. It's cost effective and benefits everyone involved. From a mare owner's point of view, the money we save for the resulting foal is worth its weight in gold. It's the only deal in town!"
If your donated breeding sells prior to the start of the donation year's NRHA Futurity, your stallion will be eligible for Sire Awards at that year's Futurity. Your stallion wins these awards if any of his three-year-olds finish in the top three of the NRHA Open and/or Non Pro Futurity among Sire Award eligible sires. The following three years could earn him NRHA Derby Sire Awards. Stallions having four, five and/or six-year-olds that finish in the top three among Sire Award eligible sires of the Open, Intermediate Open, and/or Non Pro Derby, are eligible for Derby Sire Awards.

Sire & Dam Offspring eligibility remains with the foal even if sold by the mare owner. Please contact the office to verify Sire & Dam Offspring status.
