All American Cup Sets Another Record - Correction

Editor's Note: The original press release sent to Saddle Horse Report was in error. The inaugural All American Cup for three-year-olds will be held in 2008.

The final count is in. Two hundred and six American Saddlebred weanlings will be eligible to compete in the 2006 All American Cup. The total record setting amount of money being awarded as a result of the 2005 All American Cup Auction is an amazing $307,485.

On Tuesday evening, September 5, 2006, at the All American Horse Classic, Indianapolis, Ind., an estimated 60-70 weanlings will go head-to-head in a competition valued at another historic purse of $154,000. The All American Cup Weanling Grand Champion will leave the ring with a check in excess of $50,000.

Another exciting segment of the All American Cup, and that which has every professional horseman and trainer talking, is that one-half of this $308,000 purse is being held in escrow for the All American Three-Year-Old Three-Gaited Cup.

The inaugural All American Cup for the three-year-olds will be held when these weanlings become three in 2008. This exciting performance class will award over $155,000 which will set an all time record as these outstanding three-year-olds will vie for the most amount of money ever awarded to a performance horse in the history of the American Saddlebred.

Aikman Breeders’ Incentive Award is created to encourage participation both as an in-hand weanling and as a three-year-old performance horse. The animal does not have to be shown as a weanling in order to show as a three-year-old. To be eligible for the Breeders’ Incentive Award, however, the animal must be tied first or second as a weanling and again as a three-year-old.

The first Breeders’ Incentive Award will be available in 2008 and valued at $12,500. $2,500 will be added each year to the value of this award’s record premiums and other beautiful prizes will be awarded to the first 16 places. The 15th and 16th placed weanlings will win $1,500 each.

In addition to that All American Cup, these same weanlings may compete in the Open Indiana Futurity for another record setting purse of over $11,000. For more information on the All American Cup or how to have your stallion included, contact Jim Aikman at (317) 862-4341 or at
