The North American Woodcock Futurity is a restricted breeder’s stake that runs on fall woodcock. Only derby age dogs or younger from a recognized pointing breed with a dam nominated by its owner and whose litter has been both Field Dog Stud Book enrolled and nominated by the breeder are eligible to enter the Futurity.
The North American Woodcock Futurity is a money stake with the purse being 50% of the entry fees. The purse is divided equally (50/50) between the owner and handler of the first, second, third and fourth place dogs. The division of winnings are: 50% of the purse divided equally for the first place owner and handler, 30% of the purse divided equally for the second place owner and handler, 20% of the purse divided equally for the third place owner and handler and no purse for the fourth place owner and handler.
Notice to owners of the dam and breeders: To make a litter eligible to run in the North American Woodcock Futurity, a two- step process must be completed. Within 30 days of the breeding date, a completed first (1st) forfeit form along with a $10.00 forfeit must be sent to the Woodcock Futurity chairman from the bred dam’s owner. Within sixty (60) days of the litter’s whelp date, and after the litter has been FDSB registered, the breeder must send a completed second (2nd) forfeit form along with another $10.00 forfeit to the Woodcock Futurity chairman. If no forfeit is enclosed with either forfeit form, the litter will not be considered nominated in the North American Woodcock Futurity.
Please note, all dates are to follow the day/month/year format.
Notice to derby owners: After her owner has nominated the dam and the breeder has FDSB registered and nominated the litter, you can submit your entry to the Woodcock Chairman after the Futurity has been advertised in the American Field but before the announced Futurity Draw date. The $75.00 futurity entry fee is payable before the derby can run in the stake.
