Started in 1966, the NRHA Sire & Dam program continues to provide significant benefits to both stallion and mare owners. Stallions who participate in the program are eligible for NRHA Futurity and Derby awards, while mare owners have the opportunity to purchase breedings to the top stallions in the industry at reduced rates.
