14th Annual All American Cup Auction Huge Success

The 14th annual All American Cup Auction held on January 23, 2016 was a HUGE success even with 'Mother Nature" trying to interfere with the "Greatest Show on Earth".There were 107 stallion services offered with a total auction sale amount of  $171,400.00.

The All American Cup, Inc. would like to thank those that made the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd a special life remembering event!! Alliance Stud, LLC, Cornerstone, Escalade Farm, Mannington Farm, Sunrise Stables, and Willowbank Farm for hosting "Open Houses" to show Saddlebred enthusiasts from around the globe some of American's top Saddlebred stallions . We thank you and your efforts did not go unnoticed and were very much appreciated! !

A special "THANKS" to our auction host, Dr. Scott and Linda Bennett along with their team at Alliance Stud LLC for the countless hours in the preparation for the event. The venue was amazingly decorated; the food and drinks were awesome. The All American Cup, Inc. is so appreciative of the opportunity to have the AAC Auction held at such a fine facility.  THANK YOU!!!!



A special "Thank you" to the AAC team for volunteering their time and talents. They are the spokes of the wheel keeping the AAC on track to success.   They are VERY MUCH  appreciated!!


All American Cup, Inc. is an entity of its own.

The first AAC Auction was held in January of 2003

The AAC has awarded over $2,67 1,985.50 in 13 years.

The AAC  has  over 3/4 of a million  dollars  in the bank  waiting  for future AAC  class  award winners .

Most of the AAC volunteer team has been volunteering their time and talents since 2003 .

As you can see, the All American Cup is like a "well" oiled machine and is here to stay for years to come!!  !

Lastly, a very big "THANK YOU" to Vickie Matney, Jim's personal secretary, who put in countless long  hours with phone calls, detail preparation of the catalog, ticket and advertising sales. Just to name a few duties that she undertook.

Thank you, one and all, for your participation in the 14th annual AAC Auction. We look forward to seeing you at the 15th annual auction and beyond.
