The ASPC Classic Stallion Sweepstakes is an exciting incentive program offered by the American Shetland Pony Club, Inc., that allows members to promote their stallions in a unique light. This includes a thrilling auction in the Spring, the chance for their foals to compete in the prestigious Classic Stallion Sweepstakes Class at Congress and, last but not least, a sizable purse!
Stallion owners nominate their stallions, for a small fee by December 15th, and donate one breeding to be auctioned the following January. The resulting foals are qualified for the Classic Stallion Sweepstakes Class. By nominating their stallion, the owners are also allowed to enter one foal into the Classic Stallion Sweepstakes Class. All proceeds from the auction and nomination fees make up the sweepstakes purse. The following year, at the ASPC Congress, the Sweepstakes Class is held and the purse is divided and awarded to the top foals.
