IQHRA Stallion Service Auction Announcement

The IQHRA would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has graciously donated stallionsfor our past stallion service auctions. As well, we would like to thank those individuals who have purchased breedings from our auction and of course those who have run their horses in our Iowa Double Gold Futurity and Derby Stakes.


Recently, the IQHRA Board of Directors voted to discontinue the stallion service auction and replace its restricted stakes with a non-restricted Futurity and Derby. These races will continue to be called the Iowa Double Gold Futurity and Derby with their trials being run the opening weekend of our meet each year. We are anticipating the Futurity to have a $150,000 guaranteed purse and the Derby to have a $80,000 guaranteed purse. It is our hope that these unrestricted stakes, at the start of our meet, will bring more horses, trainers and owners to Prairie Meadows.


The Futurity will begin in its new format in 2020 and the Derby in 2021. Until then we will continue to start each racing season with the Iowa Double Gold Futurity and Derby, restricting the races to the foals of stallions sold in our earlier auctions.


We look forward to continued great Quarter Horse Racing at Prairie Meadows and hope you will all take advantage of these new unrestricted stakes. Thanks again for your past support.
