Stallion nominators’ awards are paid for each race in the Northwest Race Series (NWRS) each year. These awards equal five percent of the total gross purse of each Northwest Race Series race and are paid to the nominators of the sires of the first, second and third place horses as follows: 50% for first, 30% for second and 20% for third.
The NWSS (Northwest Stallion Stakes) Cahill Road Stakes will not be run in 2017. In lieu of that, $40,000 in additional bonus money, known as the NWRS Nominated Sire Awards, will be allocated as follows: $10,000 in owners’ bonuses will be distributed for each of four NWRS two-year-old stakes races – Angie C. Stakes, Emerald Express, WTBOA Lads Stakes and Barbara Shinpoch Stakes – with $5,000 going to the owner of the first place finisher, $3,500 to second and $1,500 to third. These bonuses will be paid in addition to the normally allocated NWRS nominator’s awards. Remember: Offspring of nominated stallions MUST ALSO be nominated to the Northwest Race Series to be eligible to receive NWRS Nominated Sire Awards.
Listed below are the stallions who covered mares in 2017 whose offspring (foals of 2018) are eligible to compete as two-year-olds in 2020 for NWRS Nominated Sire Awards.
