In, 2019, the Hambletonian Society is accepting Supplemental Yearling Nominations for the stakes and harness racing events they service that required a May 15 yearling nominating payment for foals of 2018.

"It was brought to our attention by the staking services that there are always a handful of yearlings missed in the process in May," said John Campbell, president of the Hambletonian Society, which owns and administers 137 of the richest stakes in North America. "The board accepted the premise that the odd yearling may have been left out when it comes time to catalog yearlings for fall sales."

"Since yearling eligibility is the key to so many stakes, we thought it would be fair to try accepting a yearling supplement in August for the races we service. The key was trying to find a fair amount and the right time frame to allow this."

The Supplemental Yearling Nomination payment is for those nominators who have missed the regular May 15th payment deadline but are still interested in maintaining eligibility to those stakes that require yearling payments.

The new supplemental payment is due by August 15th, in an amount five times the standard May 15th payment for the race in question. For example, the May 15th yearling payment for the Adios is $10. The Supplemental Yearling Payment would be five times that amount, or $50. All payments must be postmarked by August 15 and mailed to the Hambletonian Society office.

The direct link to the form for Supplemental Yearling Nominations can be found on our website here: or by calling our office and having the form faxed or e-mailed to you.
