The Breeding Sire of the Year award was established by the MFTHBA Membership Committee to recognize stallions providing a significant impact on the continuation of the breed. In addition, the award was designed to encourage foal registration in a timely manner, something that helps the MFTHBA in its task to preserve the registry of the breed.
The criteria for the award are simple:
- All stallions who submit an on-time stallion breeding report are eligible.
- The 2020 Top Breeding Sires represents the stallions with the most foals born in 2020 and registered with the MFTHBA by December 31, 2020.
