  4. DNA test results, whether directly through the University of Kentucky or results from UC-Davis, must be submitted to the University of Kentucky by January 1st, in order for the resulting foal(s) to be eligible to show in the Sweepstakes classes.

Bidding Rules

 
Stallion owners may bid on their own stallions.
 
Bids will be accepted on the 'live' auction site address posted on the home page.
Opening bid is a minimum of $200.00.  The bid increment will be $50.00.
Bids will be accepted beginning Saturday, January 11, and will end on Sunday, January 19, at approximately 7:00 PM in each time zone, based on the time zone where the stallion is located. If a bid comes in right at the end of auction, it will extend the auction another 5 minutes, giving others an opportunity to raise the bid. Each bid received at that point will extend the auction 5 minutes, just like a REAL auction.
The high bidder and stallion owners will be contacted and sent an invoice as soon as bids can be confirmed. 
Submission of a bid is a contract to pay. Bids must be postmarked and paid in full by February 15. Non-payment will result in being banned from future Sweepstakes, and place the bidder in "poor standing" with ASPC/AMHR, and the resulting foal SHALL NOT be registered.
Payment will be accepted by check, money order, all major credit cards. If the high bidder fails to pay their bid in full by February 15, the next highest bidder will be contacted. (Stallion owners are STRONGLY encouraged to verify if payment has been received before covering an outside mare.)
 
Payment for winning bids shall be made payable to: American Shetland Pony Club Inc.

Judges:

Names of all ASPC-carded judges present at the ASPC Congress Show who do not have a vested interest in the Sweepstakes (i.e., do not own a nominated stallion, mare, or entered foal or who are not showing a nominated foal), and who are willing to judge the class, will be put in a hat. Three names will be drawn by a disinterested party and will be announced just prior to the class. One judge will be randomly selected as "call judge" and placings will be scored according to the formula for placing all classes.
