The 2023 Superior Morgan Sweepstakes Event will be held on
Tuesday & Wednesday evenings, November 14-15 at 6PM EST

ENTRY DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 1st, 2023

We are thrilled to bring you one of the largest and most exciting programs in the history of the Morgan breed. The first ever Superior Morgan Sweepstakes, presented by C. Jarvis Insurance Company and the Equine Veterinary Hospital of Northern Indiana, was a smashing success in 2022 with over 50 outstanding weanlings competing and the winner accepted a check for over $60,000. In 2023, our event will be held Tuesday, November 14, 2023 and Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at the Michiana Event Center in Shipshewana, Indiana and will be offering a total jackpot of over $275,000!

The first night of competition will feature all eligible, entered weanlings showing individually. The five judge panel will select a group of approximately 25 weanlings to return on Wednesday evening for the final evaluation.

The second night of competition will bring the final 25 weanlings back individually, before returning as a full group for a final lineup and evaluation. Once the judges have marked their cards from 1-25, the results will be tabulated and announced, beginning with honorable mention, then the long march from 20th to 1st place and the distribution of the largest purse in the history of the breed.

Only two foals per stallion will be eligible to show in this event—one will be bred by the winning bidder from the stallion service auction, the stallion owner donating the service earned the right to nominate a weanling, so this is a very exclusive group! If you have sold or transferred your sweepstakes nomination, please contact secretary Julie Christopher immediately at 248-921-3316 or email her at fairwindmorgans@gmail.com.

Only the mares owned or leased by the winning bidder from the stallion service auction or the stallion service donor are eligible to produce Sweepstakes foals. All entries will be checked against the American Morgan Horse Association’s records to confirm eligibility to compete in the Sweepstakes event.

Entries for the 2023 Superior Morgan Sweepstakes Event will close on November 1, 2023, allowing as much time as possible to choose which of your weanlings will be the most fit to compete. Entries MUST BE RECEIVED by November 1st. Emailed entries will be accepted. The entry fee for the event will be $250, which includes one stall. Additional tack stalls may be purchased for $65.

Upon completion of the event on Wednesday evening, weanlings that are not consigned to the Superior Morgan Horse Sale will be required to leave the grounds by 8AM on Thursday morning, as those stalls will be needed for the sale horses and stallions moving in on Thursday. Local trainers and stables have volunteered their facilities as layover locations for any weanlings that cannot be shipped home until after the completion of the Superior Morgan Horse Sale. Contact the sale if you require names of participating stables.

2021 Sweepstakes Sires

If you bred a mare in 2022 that is sired by one of these stallions, and the service that you’re using was purchased through our 2021 Superior Morgan Sweepstakes Sire Auction, your 2023 foal will be eligible to compete in our 2023 event provided you have submitted the Mare Declaration Form by December 31, 2022.
