NATHC announces the birth of a leggy colt by Orb out of our stakes winning mare Market Way. The colt was born Sunday afternoon in Kentucky.  The mare is booked back to Tapizar

That’s three colts so far for us, 3 down and 7 more to come hopefully all as healthy as the first three.

Washington Thoroughbred Breeders & Owners Association

Don’t Miss Your Chance
to Breed Your Mare to Your Selected Stallion
at a Reduced Stud Fee!
Bids are Due by Monday, February 12!
The WTBOA will be auctioning off 2018 No Guarantee* Breeding Seasons that have been donated to the association (view list). Bids must be at least 40% of the advertised fees, as shown below (unless specified otherwise). Stallion owners/managers reserve the right to accept only Thoroughbred broodmares that are clean and sound for breeding (veterinary certificates required). Board, care and veterinary expenses are not included in the stallion season price.
The proceeds from this year’s event will be split between two lucrative bonus programs – the expanded Sales Incentive Program and the WTBOA Homebred Incentive Program.
Sales Incentive Program (SIP) – All yearlings and weanlings that go through the sale and are made fully eligible will earn a lucrative bonus if they break their maiden at Emerald Downs at age two or three at one of two levels: A $2,500 owner’s bonus will be paid if a SIP-eligible horse wins its first race in a maiden special weight, allowance or stakes race; or a $1,000 owner’s bonus will be paid if a SIP-eligible horse wins its first race in a $25,000 or more maiden claiming race.
WTBOA Homebred Incentive Program (WHIP) awards home-breds that have not gone through any sale (sold or RNA) and are racing at Emerald Downs. A $1,000 bonus will be paid to the owner of a Washington-bred of any age when it breaks its maiden at the $25,000 level or better. For more information or for specific details on either program, please contact our office at (253) 288-7878.
Bids are due by Monday, February 12, 2018, at 5 p.m. Bids may be submitted via the online form; e-mailed to; or mailed to WTBOA, Attn: Stallion Season Auction, 3220 Ron Crockett Dr. NW, Auburn, WA 98001.
