2017 Pot of Gold  Program Description

Pot of Gold Awards are presented to the top four 4-year-old Futurity horses that have accumulated the highest numbers of points in Morgan “FUTURITY” classes. Pot of Gold points are  assigned  as  follows:  For Futurity non-championship in-hand classes:  1st  = 6 pts; 2nd  = 5 pts, 3rd = 4 pts, 4th  = 3 pts, 5th  = 2 pts and 6th  = 1 pt. For Futurity performance classes, DOUBLE POINTS will be awarded. For combined-age non-championship in-hand and performance classes, the points for each age group will be assigned separately. For Futurity in-hand championship classes, the Champion will receive 12 points; the Reserve Champion, 10 points.

Any points earned by nominated horses in their first or any successive Futurity show will accumulate until their Class “graduates” at the conclusion of the show of their 4-year-old year. The 4-year-old with the highest number of points will be named the Futurity Champion of its graduating class.  The “Pot of Gold” (prize money) for the graduating class will then be divided and awarded as follows:  40% to the Champion, 25% to the Reserve Champion, 20% to Third Place and 15% to Fourth Place.

The “Pot of Gold” for each graduating class is a cumulative total calculated by adding 20% of the Futurity nomination fees and 20% of the Futurity class entry fees collected each year for the members of that class.  To maintain eligibility to receive a Pot of Gold award for its accumulated points, a horse must continue to be nominated, not necessarily shown, every year through its 4-year-old year.
