LATE PAYMENTS INTO ANY SERIES

Late Payments for Stallions

To pay a stallion into any Grass Roots Bonus Series and/or keep it eligible, Stallion Payment 'A' (and Stallion Payment 'B', if applicable) can still be made at any time within three months of their original due date (i.e. Payment 'A' by November 30, or Payment 'B' by August 31) - but Late Fees will apply and will be equivalent to an additional 50% of the original payment.

If the Stud/stallion owner fails to make Payment 'A' (and/or Payment 'B' if applicable) - plus the necessary Late Fees in either case - prior to the final Payment Deadlines outlined above, then their sire will be deemed to be ineligible for the Grass Roots Series pertaining to that particular breeding season.

Furthermore, if this sire was already on the List of Nominated Stallions for that Series and advertised as such, it will be retrospectively removed; Grass Roots Bonus Series Ltd accepts no responsibility or liability for wrongly advertising a sire as being nominated if it later becomes ineligible.

Note: it's in the best interests of a Stud/stallion owner to nominate their sire(s) for Grass Roots (and make Payment 'A') as soon as possible prior to the first cut-off date of August 31, because once each new breeding season is underway we'll be doing extensive advertising about what sires are involved in the Grass Roots Series for that season - to encourage patronage of these stallions on your behalf, obviously. So if your sire's name isn't on the List of Nominated Stallions from the beginning, not only will you miss out on all our promotion - breeders might choose to send their mare(s) to another Grass Roots-nominated stallion in a similar price range instead.

Late Payments for Progeny

There are NO Late Payment options available for progeny sired by Grass Roots-nominated stallions.
