2. The “breeding season” is defined as beginning February 15 and ending September 1 or after the
last mare is bred, whichever comes first, each year in the northern hemisphere.
a) Stallions do not have to be physically in Kentucky by February 15 but should have a
declared Kentucky residence by this date. Prior to covering the first mare, the declared
residence of the stallion needs to be on record with the KMHBC.
b) The KMHBC and the KHRC reserve the right to confirm a stallion’s residency with a

nominated to the KMHB IF for the breeding year and the dam must be nominated to the KMHB
IF for the foaling year.

2. A Foal Nomination Form must be submitted by December 1 of the foaling year along with a
color copy (front and back) of the foal’s AMHA registration certificate and all fees paid.
Exception: Foals earning points during their foaling year must be nominated by August 1 of

Payouts will be based on the number of Open and Amateur points (not including showmanship or
reinsmanship classes) earned by KMHB IF eligible horses. Show year will coincide with AMHA
Honor Roll which is January 1 to December 31. All approved shows held in Kentucky will earn
double points. AMHA World Show does not earn points.

EXCEPTION - Year 2012 - Due to the fact that the KMHB Show Year in the 2012-2014
presentation to the KHRC is changing from the "Show Year" coinciding with AMHA
World Show qualifying cutoff date (January through 30 days prior to the start of the
World Show) to the "Show Year" defined as a "Calendar Year," i.e., January 1
through December 31; points earned from August 25, 2011 through December 31, 2011,
which would have been paid out in 2013 with the 2012 claims; will be paid out in 2012
with the 2011 claims.

2. AMHA’s most current show rules in print will serve as a guide and default criteria for any and all
aspects of the KMHB IF.

3. Foals earning points during their foaling year must be nominated by August 1 of their foaling
year in order for those points to count. All nominations after August 1 will start accumulating
points January 1 of their yearling year.

4. Fifteen years of age is the limit for a nominated foal to earn points.



E. Disbursement of Funds to all nominated horse owners:

1. 10% to the stallion owner. Stallion owner is the person or persons owning the stallion at time of
breeding. If the stallion has multiple owners, stallion may be nominated by all or one owner. The
owner nominating the stallion is responsible for filing all forms and complying with all KMHB IF
and KHRC rules.

2. 10% to the breeder or foal nominator. If not the same, the premium money will be awarded 50/50
to each party. The breeder is the owner of the mare at the time of breeding.

3. 80% to the owner or owners of the nominated foal. If a nominated foal is sold, each owner will
receive remuneration for the points earned under their ownership.

4. KHRC will not distribute award checks prior to March 31 of the current year for the previous
program year. Award checks will only be distributed when all program requirements have been
met. All required information must be postmarked to the KMHBC by December 1 in order to
allow time for the claim form to be mailed to claim recipient/s and to allow time for the claim
recipient/s to mail to the KHRC no later than December 31 of the year following the program
year.
