The All American Cup



Projected To Be The Largest Paying Class In The History Of The American Saddlebred - $110,000.

There are over one hundred thirty (130) of America’s leading Stallions nominated into The All American Cup. The owners of these Stallions represent the paramount Breeders of American Saddlebreds.

The services from these premier stallions will be sold at The All American Cup Auction, which will be held at the famous Claudia Sanders Restaurant, Shelbyville, Kentucky at 4:00 P.M. on Saturday, January 25, 2003.

The receipts from this Auction will provide the funding for what is projected to be the largest paying competition ever offered to the American Saddlebred show horse. The stallion service donor will receive 25% of the purse.

These are the Stallion services that every Broodmare owner in America should be bidding upon. Not only will the successful bidder be rewarded with a grand foal but also they will have just purchased a ticket and paid their entry fee into a Weanling Class that will probably award close the $120,000. The winner will receive an estimated $40,000.

The American Saddlebred breeding business has and will come alive with classes like The All American Cup.

One wonders if anyone has ever stopped to realize that monetary rewards that await those who elect to participate in Futurities and Limited Breeders Classes like The All American Cup. The winning colt in The All American Cup may win over twice the amount of money won by the great horse that wins the World Grand Championship Five-Gaited Stake, five times as much as the winner of the World Grand Championship Three-gaited Stake, and nine times as much as the winner of the World Grand Championship Fine Harness Stake.

The colts that will be competing in The All American Cup have had special care, de-worming, hoof care, etc. for approximately three months. The colts have been discretely trained and handled for no more than 60 days and someone will win nearly $40,000. There will be 16 places awarded in The All American Cup. Again, thanks to the Stallion Service donors who will be rewarded with 25% of these large awards.

Every broodmare owner in America should, first, try to acquire the Stallion service of their choice at The All American Cup Auction. One can readily see the many advantages of showing in The All American Cup.

With the interest generated by The All American Cup, and the many other rewarding Limited Breeders Classes around the Country, it is expected that many people will again start acquiring “good” mares, buying stallion services at these auction, and competing for these unequaled large purses.

The Inaugural “Cup” will be held on the Wednesday following Labor Day, 2004, at the All American Classic Horse Show--Indianapolis, Ind. The All American is the creative show recognized for its hospitality and the host of the American Saddlebred Sweepstakes. The All American has been co-managed for decades by Steve and Claire Panke and has been co-chaired for ten years by Dawn Kendrick and Steve Kildow.

The facilities at Indianapolis are unequaled and the beautiful air-conditioned coliseum, large enclosed make-up ring, and all stables interconnected to the coliseum -- weather never being a concern. The All American is held at the perfect time of the year.

The All American Cup has arranged for a large number of “staging stalls” to be available for the exhibitors to use. These stalls are immediately outside of the entrance to the Coliseum and they provide an ideal place to put the “final touches” on each colt before it is called into the arena for showing.

Again , if you own a Broodmare, you should acquire a Stallion Service at the All American Cup Auction. Contact Jim Aikman--317-862-4341 so the mechanics of The All American Cup can be explained to you.

Also, if you cannot attend the Auction, arrangements and reservations can be made so that the All American Cup staff can place a phone call to you in order to take your phone bids on the Stallions of your choice.

And finally, a special “thank You” from every American Saddlebred Breeder in America to Dr. Rick Luft, of Wisconsin the creator of the Limited Breeders concept. Also to Melissa Moore, the professional trainer, who gave much time and effort in creating a variation with The Bluegrass Futurity.

Breeding, Raising and Showing good colts is on everyone’s mind.
