Sniper will be paid into as many incentives as possible as foals come of age. His first foal crop will hit the ground in 2019. My goal is to nominate him into Future Fortunes, PESI, 5-States, Hawki, and the Barrel Racing Incentive Fund. He is already paid into the Glacier Chaser Classic and is on the list for 2019 Triple Crown 100.
