SPONSOR GIFT CHOICES THIS YEAR

As you may know, every Grand National sponsorship includes a thank you gift. We're happy to report that you can again choose between a beautiful custom made leather sponsor bag or a coupon for two custom made RaDon box seat covers.

RaDon Box Seat Covers: Made by RaDon, Inc., these beautiful seat covers will last a lifetime and will feature your farm's name and colors. Covers have elastic backs to fit all seats and can be used anywhere you show. Each seat cover includes your choice of two colors and a 12-character name. (If you’d like extras, you’ll arrange for those directly with RaDon, and pay for those yourself.  Extras include additional characters/letters, optional rear zipper program pocket and graphic logos).  Two box seat covers retail for $90.

If you'd like to have two RaDon box seat covers, instead of a leather gift bag, please let us know as soon as possible.  We'll send you a coupon and an order form.  Box seat covers take 3-4 weeks to produce and will be shipped directly to you. 

PROGRAM ADVERTISING OPTIONS AND DEADLINES

Show Program Ads for Sponsors!  Your sponsorship includes complimentary ad space in this year's Grand National Show Program, limited to sponsors only.

Ad Deadlines:  Camera-ready ads that are ready to go are due on August 25.  If you need help preparing an ad, those materials are due to us by August 10.  With these extended deadlines, we now have to keep strictly to them and will not be able to accept any ads after the dates outlined here.  No exceptions, we’re afraid.  Thanks for understanding.

Website Ads for Sponsors!  This is your opportunity to be a “click away” from the most involved and dynamic group of Morgan enthusiasts in the country. Your complimentary sponsorship ad credit can now be used toward a $700 box ad on the Grand National’s beautiful website!  Once created, your ad will be featured on the website for 12 consecutive months.  Due to scheduling, we are unable to design new website ads September 15-October 25.

OUR GRAND NATIONAL SPONSORS ALSO ENJOY THESE COMPLIMENTARY BENEFITS!

  • Access to the "Sponsors Only" Platinum Parking Lot
  • Preferred Box Seating
  • Class Sponsorship
