The Markel Insurance Breeder Championship Futurity Yearling Sale is limited consignment sale designed to bring many of the nation's top yearlings to public sale. The sale is only open to yearlings enrolled in the NSBA Breeders Championship Futurity or NSBA Color Breeders Championship Futurity and is held in conjunction with the NSBA World Championship Show each year.
Proceeds from the sale are used to fund a purse exclusively held for sale graduates. Sale graduates are then eligible to compete for the purse at the Breeder Championship Futurity in their two or three year old year. In 2018, a total of $134,699 was set aside for graduates of that sale. Horses sold through the sale can compete in any one of the Two Year Old or Three Year Old Breeders Championship Futurity or Color Breeders Championship Futurity classes for their share of the purse. Sold horses are eligible to declare in only one class and must declare the class prior to competition.
In order to compete for the additional purse, horses must be consigned and sold through the Breeders Championship Futurity Yearling Sale.
