This sounds really neat to me, I like how they mention health several times.
Dear Parent Club Officer:

We are pleased to share this information with you from our friends at Eukanuba regarding the new Eukanuba Breeder’s Sweepstakes. Winning breeders from a series of regional competitions will be invited to participate in a final at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in December, with the ultimate winner to compete in the Eukanuba World Challenge. Please pass along to your membership and we look forward to seeing you out at the shows!

Eukanuba Dog Foods proudly announces the Eukanuba Breeder’s Stakes. The Eukanuba Breeder’s Stakes is an event designed to honor a group of unsung heroes – the purebred dog breeder. Breeders are the backbone of the sport, dedicating their lives to planning and producing generation upon generation of the finest and healthiest representatives of their breed.

The Eukanuba Breeder’s Stakes is an event designed to celebrate these noble efforts. This special competition is designed to evaluate an overall breeding program rather than the traditional approach of evaluating a single specimen. Respected expert judges will evaluate the breeder’s ability to consistently produce superior dogs of uniform type, health, and conformation - consistent with the breeder’s mission of improving their chosen breed.

Each breeder will exhibit 3 dogs from at least 2 litters chosen from their breeding program. The 1st exhibitor must be breeder of record on all 3 dogs, and all 3 dogs must be over one year old. Breeders will be able to enter on the day of the show.

The Eukanuba Breeder’s Stakes will be held at prominent North American shows between January and November. The first installment will take place in conjunction with the Rose City Classic in Portland, Oregon on January 23, 2010.

Each breeder will receive a gift bag for participating, and 4 places in each group will be awarded. Prizes for group placements are: 1st - $250.00 and 40 lbs of Eukanuba Dog Food, 2nd–4th - $100.00 and 40 lbs of Eukanuba Dog Food. The Group winners will compete for Best In Stakes, which earns an additional $500.00 plus a trip to the December 2010 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in Long Beach, CA on Dec. 4-5. The Best In Stakes winners of each regional competition will then compete at the AKC Eukanuba National Championship in December, 2010 for the final Eukanuba Breeder’s Stakes Champion. This will be an exciting win for this well deserving breeder as they earn the right to compete in the 2010 Eukanuba World Challenge.
