that time.  Timely payments are your responsibility.  Payments are non-refundable. 


Eligibility for participation is contingent upon accurate completion of the required Nomination Form (including copy of Dam’s registration/recording certificate) and subsequent Registration Application of the foal.  Eligibility may be revoked if information is not submitted on the official forms and/or by the required deadlines. 


(Usually supplemented by a grant from the Virginia Horse Industry Board.) Prize money is derived from the futurity payments; up to 12% may be reserved to help defray expenses.  After the final payment is made, the entire payments from those ponies remaining eligible will be divided using the same ratio as that of colts/geldings to fillies.  The remaining monies will be divided equally. The total VPBA prize money in each section will be distributed to eight places as follows:         30%     20%     15%     10%     8%     7%     5%     5%
The recipient of the VPBA prize money will be the breeder of record (owner of mare at time of foaling, as reported on the Registration Application).  The recipient of any VHIB prize money will be the owner of record.

The Futurity is held in June of each year at a USEF licensed horse show.
It is divided into two sections: colts/geldings and fillies.
