The Bluegrass Futurity Announces Dates For 2002 Stallion Auction



Posted October 18, 2001
The Bluegrass Futurity is gearing up for its 2002 Stallion Auction. In our first year, The Bluegrass Futurity raised over $100,000 in prize money to be given out in the 2002 Bluegrass Futurity weanling class which will take place at The Kentucky Fall Classic in October as well as in the Yearling class in 2003 and the Two-Year-Old Fine Harness Class in 2004. This unique Futurity will hold it's 2002 Stallion Auction on Wednesday, January 9th at The Hyatt Regency in downtown Lexington. There will be a sit down dinner and a coctail reception beginning at 6:30 pm. The cost for the evening is $25 per person and reservations are necessary and can be made by contacting Melissa Moore. This year's auction will be held the day before the UPHA National Convention begins at the Hyatt with the intent to make it convenient for everyone to be in Lexington.

The Bluegrass Futurity is the only futurity of its kind that allows the stallion owner to nominate a mare as well as the stud fee purchaser. This will allow up to two weanlings from the same stallion to compete which increases the chance for the stallion owners taking home prize money. We have already secured some outstanding stallions for this years auction; Adriatic, Attache's Thunderbolt, Basquiat, Belle Reve's Renaissance Man, Catalyst, CF I'm A Prowlin, Fascinating Rhythm, Finally Attached, General Steel, Great Day's Came The Son, Gypsy Santana, Harlem's Valentino, Heir To Champagne, My Silver Silhouette, Only Man In Town, Revival, Simbara's Rising Son, Sultan's Matchmaker, Supreme Heir, The Mac Attack, The Cheetah, and Undulata's Man Of The Hour. Stallion owners who would like to donate a breeding to the Bluegrass Futurity please contact Melissa Moore at 859-873-9129 or by mail at P.O. Box 55, Versailles, KY 40383.
