Bluegrass Futurity Stallion Service Auction Breaks Records



LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The 2005 Bluegrass Futurity Stallion Service Auction, with 106 services available for purchase, reached its highest total ever on Saturday, Jan. 29, 2005. Held in the Phoenix Room at Keeneland Race Course, this year's sale totaled $112,850 with 73 stallion services sold at the event. This year's total topped last year by more than $20,000.

The Bluegrass Futurity began five years ago under the direction of Melissa Moore with input from the members of UPHA Chapter Nine. To date, it has paid out more than $318,000. The success of this year's auction was due in large part to the vision and hard work of Melissa Moore who surrounded herself with a capable group including Sandy Backer and bid runners Mary Sue Walker and Molly Trent. Auctioneer Tommy Biederman kept the bids coming fast and furious and moved through the list of stallions quickly and efficiently.

Clark Clouse, Chad Graham and Tanner Watson were bid spotters and they too did a great job keeping the action fast paced and exciting.

In a smart move by Melissa Moore, services not sold were left open for sale and to date have generated an additional $3,250. The total raised so far for the 2005 event is more than $116,000. Remaining services will be available on a first come-first served basis until March 1, 2005 by contacting Moore.

The Bluegrass Futurity is held each year at the Kentucky Fall Classic Horse Show and the resulting foals from this year's auction will compete in the 2006 Bluegrass Futurity Weanling class and the 2008 Two-Year-Old class.

A yearling class will also be held this year and weanlings that were eligible last year can compete in the yearling class. This year's yearling class will be the final one of the Bluegrass Futurity; it has been eliminated and will allow even more money to be paid out in the two-year-old fine harness class.

The evening was made even more enjoyable by the terrific buffet dinner that followed a cocktail hour meet-and-greet. People had a chance to peruse the extensive stallion catalog and socialize over drinks and dinner with the large group in attendance.
