Zippos Sensation & Shes Alotta Splash claim top earner spots for 2019 Breeders’ Trust payouts

Celebrating 25 years in 2019, the Breeders’ Trust continues to generate payouts to all of those who play a factor in the life of a foal; the stallion subscriber, breeder, and owner. In 2019, the Breeders’ Trust paid out more than $428,000 to participants, with a per-point value of $7.36. Keep an eye on your mailbox for your Breeders’ Trust check—they were mailed March 3.
