Louisiana Bred Awards Program

Breeders (owner/lessee of the mare at time of foaling) of Accredited Louisiana Bred foals receive breeder awards from the State of Louisiana, La State Racing Commission, or the LQHBA when their Accredited Louisiana Bred quarter horse finishes first, second or third in an Accredited Louisiana Bred race or an open race in Louisiana. MARE AWARDS are NOT paid in OPEN STAKES Trials OR in OPEN STAKES. The 2021 Louisiana Million and future Louisiana Millions will pay Mare Awards at 25% on Places 1, 2 & 3. Mare Awards will NOT be paid on horses placing 4th – 12th in any Race.

Stallion owners whose stallions have sired Accredited Louisiana Bred offspring that finish first, second or third in Stakes, Handicap, Allowance & Trial races in Louisiana earn stallion awards. (Maiden & Claiming races are not considered). Stallion awards are paid after the end of the breeders fund fiscal year, June 30. Awards are paid by the Louisiana State Racing Commission and the Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association.

The amount of each stallion’s award is directly proportional to the amount of money his offspring earn in the fiscal year of July 1 - June 30.

In 2021, Stallion Awards are approved at a $250,000 payout.
