Welcome to the “Royal Crown.”
A breeders’ incentive owned by share owners.
This incentive is designed to benefit the barrel horse industry by giving back a substantial amount to stallion or share owners and breeders. Stallion or share owners will have the potential to make money by paying into the Royal Crown. Stallion and breeder money will be split 50/50 to give mare owners more of an incentive to breed to Royal Crown stallions.
The Royal Crown is owned 100% by the share owners who will all have a say. It is run by a board of 7 selected members; all issues and new ideas can be brought to the board to be discussed and voted on. The board of members have already been selected.
This idea was presented by Matt Zancanella (Co-owner of Lion Share of Fame) to pay out the first one-million-dollar futurity to contestants on top of a substantial payout for stallion and breeders.
The Royal Crown Futurity is 100 % payback with no annual nomination fees or hidden fees, with all entry fee money being paid out. It is a 2D futurity with 0.75 second splits.
There will be 100 stallion spots sold at $12,500 a share per yearo Each spot will count as one share in the Royal Crown
o Each share is owned by whoever bought that spot they can do whatever they choose with that spot. They can sell it, sell their stallion with the share or they can sell just their stallion and keep the share to put a new stallion into.
o A spot will only open up on the waiting list if someone defaults on payment or gives up their position.
o Each share-owner will be able to bring new ideas and issues to the board.
o All stallions that were bought in during the inaugural year by stallion owners themselves, (not investor bought in) for 2020 are eligible for life from 2021 (bred in 2020) foals on up. We appreciate you taking the leap with us and believing in the Royal Crown program!
o Horses that are sold through the Royal Crown Horse Sale are eligible for life.
o If your horse runs in the Royal Crown futurity, they are eligible for life.
o All new stallions that are bought in in 2021: only the colts bred in 2021 (2022 foals) are eligible for life and the colts that run in the futurity in 2021 are eligible for life. Older horses are only eligible the year the stallion is bought in, unless they were bred that year or ran in the futurity that year or sold in the sale.
o The reason for this is we feel it gives an incentive for people to buy in each year, not just every 5th year and not every open horse will be eligible then.
o If a stallion dies or becomes sterile the owner has the option to replace that stallion with a new one, the deceased stallion’s foals will still be eligible for the Royal Crown; the owner will also be eligible to win the stallion/breeder money from the foals of the deceased stallion.
The $12,500 shareholder fee may be made in payments.Payment due dates:
* $3,500 due December 15, 2020
* $3,000 due January 1, 2021
* $3,000 due March 1, 2021
* $3,000 due May 1, 2021
o There will be a 15-day grace period for each payment. If you miss a payment, you will lose your spot and all money paid in. The next stallion on the waiting list gets the opportunity to buy that spot for the full $12,500. The waiting list will be public so you will know where you’re at. The new stallion owner will need to pay payments and payment amounts on the dates.
o Once you sign the contract you are responsible for paying the $12,500.
All money will be transparent to shareholders; shareholders will always be able to see where all of the money is spent and payed out.
There will be no nomination fees what-so-ever in the Royal Crown; any horses of futurity age by a Royal Crown Stallion will be eligible to run in the futurity. Foal owners will not need to pay foals in each year.
The only money that will be withheld from the share owners’ money is advertising and administrative costs.
o $100,000 will be held out for the marketing budget; this will enable us to provide professional marketing for the stallions in the Royal Crown program.
o $75,000 will be withheld for administration costs.
o Along with the Royal Crown Futurity, there will be a $50,000 added open 4D open to the world. Horses do not need to be by a Royal Crown Stallion.
o There will also be a $25,000 added youth side pot open to any youth competitor ages 16 and under. Horses do not need to be by a Royal Crown Stallion.
o The open and youth have been added to draw a crowd for the event and horse sale. We want people who are not involved in the Royal Crown to be drawn to the event. This helps show the benefits of breeding to a Royal Crown Stallion and buying their offspring.
The Royal Crown horse sales allows stallion owners and breeders that have bred to a Royal Crown Stallion an opportunity to consign their horses and earn those horses Royal Crown eligibility.
o Each stallion owner will be allowed to bring as many horses as they want to sell *UNLESS the max of 500 consigned horses has been reached* in which case consigned horses will be first come first served. The *unlimited consignment applies to all stallions including stallions bought in by an investor.
o Each breeder will be allowed to bring 3 horses to sell
o The public will each be able to bring one horse to sell if they are by a Royal Crown stallion.
o There will be a maximum of 500 horses allowed in the sale
o There will be no catalog fee
o There will be a $300 no sale fee applied that must be sent in prior to being allowed into the catalog. When you sell your horse, the no sale fee will be refunded to you.
o All horses MUST have a professional picture in order to be accepted into the Royal Crown Horse Sale
o There will be 8% commission charged on all horses sold
o When consigning horses, original registration papers along with a signed transfer form must be mailed to us.
o There will also be a sale graduate incentive for all horses purchased from the horse sale. They will be eligible to run in a major incentive side pot.
o To be eligible for the sale graduate incentive horses must be purchased at the sale. Horses that are not sold will be ineligible
If you are an investor or own a young stallion and wish to buy in a stallion with colts of futurity age:
o 💥 Do you want to be a part of the Royal Crown and collect stallion money? 💥
o Maybe you own a stallion but he is too young and doesn't have foals old enough to make it feasible for you to buy a spot in the program, but you don't want to miss the chance to be a part of this awesome and lucrative program. WE HAVE NEWS FOR YOU!!! After December 1, 2020 you will be able to purchase a spot and name ANY stallion that is not currently paid in to the Royal Crown, that's right you will collect the stallion money that is won for the particular stallion that you choose to fill your spot. If you choose a stallion, we will contact the stallion owner and give them first right to decide if they want to buy their stallion in themselves otherwise that stallion will be able to be bought in with permission from the stallion owner. We will have a written agreement for the two stallions that must be signed by each. When your young stallion begins to have offspring that are "of age" you can then place him in your spot. The stallion owner is still getting the benefits, even if they choose to not pay their stallion in or can't afford to at the time. The owner of the stallion would be eligible to bring colts by their stallion even if someone else buys him in.
o Maybe you don't own a stallion but still want to be a part of the Royal Crown and "play the game" without all the expense that comes with owning a stallion, or you are looking for a fun and exciting investment opportunity. After December 1st, you will be able to purchase a spot and put ANY stallion that is not currently paid in to the Royal Crown in that spot if the stallion owner agrees to it. YOU will collect the stallion money for that stallion for as long as you continue to buy that spot for that named stallion.
o Here is where the investment opportunity comes in. Say you own the spot and you pay a particular stallion into the program that you don't own. If the owner of that particular stallion decides to put their stallion in the program, that stallion owner will have to buy that spot from you at the price you decide it is worth for you to sell or any other spot that is available for purchase. The stallion owner has first right to buy their stallion in each year IF there are any open spots or if they find someone who will sell their spot to them.
o The Royal Crown is offering this exciting twist to allow everybody the opportunity to be involved in our program! For more info, contact us at [email protected] or look at www.royalcrownrace.com

Eligibilities? Jr? Sr?
Eligible for Life👑 Stallion Owners who purchased a share, thereby enrolling their stallion into the Royal Crown program in 2020 have secured Royal Crown eligibility for offspring of that stallion for life. Beginning in 2020 (our inaugural year) and for as long as they continue to sustain their share each year.
👑 Horses that are sold through the Royal Crown Horse Sale are eligible for life. (Horses must be sired by a RC Stallion to be eligible to be consigned and consigned horses must have actually sold at the sale, not merely consigned.)
👑 Any horse that runs in the Royal Crown futurity is eligible for life.
👑 Any horse that runs in the Royal Crown derby is eligible for life.
When a stallion is bought in, all ages of foals are eligible to run.If a stallion drops out of the program ONLY the offspring conceived in the years the stallion was enrolled are eligible (with the exception of the offspring that earned eligiblity for life).
Additional Initial Year BenefitsInitial year benefits apply only to the year the first share is purchased.
* All offspring regardless of age are eligible for the Royal Crown Incentive Money the initial year the share is purchased. * Stallions themselves are eligible for the Royal Crown open and/or futurity side-pot for that year and that year only
* Offspring by that Stallion are eligible for the futurity and the open for the initial year and then again starting with eligible foal crop year.
??* Offspring are eligible to be consigned to the sale by BOTH the Jr and the Sr Stallion.
Eligible foal crop example using initial share purchase of 2021Share purchased in 2021
2021 Foals of any age are eligible for applicable side-pots
2026 Foals conceived in 2021, born in 2022, race age 2026
Jr/Sr Stallion Option
The Jr/Sr Stallion Option allows Stallion Owners to avoid the ‘dead’ years. I our example this would be from 2021-2026
Jr Stallion Enrolls in 2021 and begins receiving all advertising and marketing benefits and can ensure breeders that offspring beginning with the 2021 breeding season (2022 foal crop) will be eligible for the Royal Crown bonus.
Jr Stallion delegates a Sr Stallion who has offspring of running age
The JR Stallion can compete himself the initial year
All offspring by the Sr Stallion are eligible the initial year and each year the share is sustained until the JR Stallions offspring become of age.
All Eligible for life benefits apply for the Sr Stallions offspring until the Jr Stallions offspring become of age.
(At this point the Sr Stallion has an option to purchase a share himself or in the event the 100 max is met, can be put on a waiting list.)
All eligible for life benefits apply for the Jr Stallion when his eligible offspring become of age.
