Northern Hemisphere Fee Representation
Nomination to the Breeders ’ Cup International Stallion program by subscription
of a fee equal to 50% of the amount of the advertised 2017 stud fee as described
The nominator hereby represents and warrants to Breeders’ Cup Limited (BCL) that
the Nomination Fee listed herein is 50% of the amount of the advertised stud fee
for the 2017 breeding season for the stallion listed. If the stud fee is not or
will not be advertised, the Nomination Fee for a particular stallion shall be equal
to the “prevailing stud fee” established by the farm, syndicate manager or owner
for seasons sold to third parties (excluding any nominations sold privately by shareholders
in the stallion). As used in this fee representation, “prevailing stud fee” means,
in respect of a particular stallion, the greater of (i) the average of all fees
received from the sale of seasons to third parties (excluding any nominations sold
privately by shareholders in the stallion), or (ii) the most frequently occurring
fee amount received from the sale of seasons to third parties (excluding any nominations
sold privately by shareholders in the stallion). The minimum Nomination Fee is US$1,000.
For purposes of determining the advertised fee only advertisements initiated by
and paid by the stallion manager and published prior to February 15th
of the year for which the stallion is nominated will be considered. In determining
the Nomination Fee from advertisements which offer more than one fee arrangement,
only the greater of the fees advertised will be accepted.
