The Finger Lakes Futurity Series consists of three stakes races for NY-bred two-year-olds: the Aspirant for colts, the Lady Finger for fillies and the New York Breeders’ Futurity for horses of either sex.
Only foals born in the current year (weanlings) are eligible for nomination to the Futurity Series through the NY Thoroughbred Breeding & Development Fund (for a $125 fee).
In the event that a foal has not been nominated during its foaling year, it can still be nominated through December 31st of its yearling year for the same $125 fee. Two-year-olds that have not been nominated to the Series can be supplementally entered into the Aspirant of Lady Finger for a fee of 15% of the purse. To nominate a yearling or two-year-old to the Futurity Series, contact the Finger Lakes Racing Secretary’s office at 585-924-3232 ext. 388 or by e-mail at [email protected] for a nomination form.
No further payments beyond the $125 nomination fee will be required to maintain a foal’s eligibility for the Futurity Series races.
