$400 Breeders' Cup Foal Nomination Deadline Closes October 15
LEXINGTON, Ky. (October 11, 2021) – The Breeders’ Cup issued a reminder today that Friday, Oct. 15 at 11:59 p.m. ET is the last opportunity for horsemen to nominate weanlings of 2021 to the Breeders’ Cup program at the one-time regular nomination fee of $400 USD.
The $400 nomination entitles each foal with lifetime eligibility to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and the Breeders’ Cup Racing Programs. All foals sired by a fully-nominated North American Breeders' Cup stallion are eligible for nomination to the Breeders' Cup program in their year of birth at the weanling rate.
Breeders' Cup Limited has been Thoroughbred racing's most significant international program for over 38 years. During this time, Breeders’ Cup has allocated purses and awards in excess of $860 million to owners, foal nominators and stallion nominators through the programs of the Breeders' Cup including the annual $31 million Breeders' Cup World Championships.
In addition to the racing benefits, in 2021, Breeders’ Cup foal nominators have earned $10,000 USD for every victory in a Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” race and upon starting are also eligible to win nominator awards in every Breeders’ Cup World Championships race. The individual nominating the foal receives these nominator awards even though the horse may change hands throughout its racing career.

“We were very saddened to learn today of the passing of Bob Neumeier. Bob was a big part of the NBC Breeders’ Cup World Championships broadcasts for many years as a handicapper, reporter and analyst. Bob brought his expertise of Thoroughbred racing and a great sense of humor to every show. We extend our sincere condolences to Bob’s wife Michele and to his extended family.”

For good reason, much of the attention on the $4 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1) will be on the international runners who come to Del Mar for the 12-furlong contest. In the last decade, just three winners have hailed from the United States, with the other seven coming from Europe. Since 2000, that split is 16 Europe, six for America.
