Stallion Accreditation and Admin Fee Deadline:
In order to receive Stallion Awards on foals conceived during the 2016 breeding season, a stallion must be accredited and his annual administrative fee for the 2016 season must be paid.
If you stood a stallion in Texas for the 2016 breeding season, but have not yet accredited him, you have until August 1 to do so for $100. Any stallion accreditation applications postmarked after August 1 will not apply to the 2016 breeding season, but will apply to 2017.
If you have not yet paid your stallion’s Annual Administrative Fee for the 2016 breeding season, the deadline for late payment of $325 is August 1, 2016. If this is the stallion’s first year in Texas and he came into the state after February 1, you may pay the normal admin fee of $200. The Annual Administrative Fee cannot be accepted for the current breeding season after the August 1 deadline.
Texas Stallion Stakes Deadline:
The deadline to nominate stallions to the Texas Stallion Stakes Series for the 2016 breeding season is October 1, 2016. Only Accredited Texas stallions may be nominated. The nomination fee is the greater of $1500 or the advertised stud fee. At this point, stallions not new to the state for 2016 must also pay a $500 late nomination fee.
October 1 is also the deadline to pay any balance owed for stallions early nominated to the TSSS for the 2016 breeding season. Invoices will mail in early September.
