Callaway's Blue Norther Added to AAC Stallion Lineup

Through the generosity of Ms. Tony Weldon and Callaway Hills Farm of New Bloomfield, Missouri, The All American Cup is honored to offer the stallion services to the great Callaway's Blue Norther in the January 24 AAC auction. His book is "closed to the public," never to be bred to outside mares again. He ships fresh cooled semen. Only through the All American Cup can a person acquire a service to this amazing stallion. The services of Blue Norther will be the first sold in the All American Cup Auction at approximately 6:45 pm on Saturday January 24.

The proceeds from the sale of Blue Norther semen will then be given to the Callaway Hills Animal Shelter, a 501-c-3 charity. Even though the proceeds from the AAC Auction sale will NOT go into the All American Cup "pot", the buyer, their broodmare, and the resulting foal will be completely eligible to the All American Cup competition.

Other exciting news includes the exclusive inclusion of all four stallions from the famous Happy Valley Farm, Rossville, GA, owned by Marion-"Bit" Hutcheson. The famous Merchant Prince is enrolled in the AAC Auction for the first time in five years. His list of World’s Champions is too long to list Also included is the famous son of Merchant Prince--the gorgeous I'm The Prince the sire of WGC Grande Gil. Also exclusive to the AAC are the beautiful Magical Me and Harlem's Friendly Conversation.

Bring your friends and attend the All American Cup Stallion Review and Auction. Make your reservations now in order to get a seat on the AAC Luxury Coaches as you will be taken to Sunrise Stables, Willowbank Farm, Copper Coin Farm and Alliance Stud where you will see nearly 40 exciting Stallions. Jim Aikman will try to entertain you on your journey telling stories about famous stallions and horses going back 65 years. As more buses are filled, there will be other guest story tellers. Like tradition, the All American Cup starts you out from Claudia Sanders with a free Continental Breakfast and a free Sack Lunch graced with the world famous Sally Nottage handmade candy.

Every person buying a ticket to the Dinner and Auction will also be eligible to have their name in the "Drawing of a Lifetime" for a custom painting valued at $5000 by Andy Johns, the world renowned artist from Dallas, Texas. The painting will be of a horse of the winner’s choice. This drawing will be held at 6:00 pm. You do not have to be a bidder to win.

At 6:15, a second Drawing will be held for the "eligible" people who were buyers and stallion service donors in the 2008 AAC Auction and made their appropriate and timely mare declarations. There will be two Drawings for two $2500 All American Cup Youth Scholarships. These wonderful Scholarships are to be used only for college level purposes. Special arrangements will be made if any person of the Amish faith should be the winner.

It is planned that these All American Cup Youth Scholarships will be made annually. They are being provided, at no cost to the AAC, by Mrs. Linda Allen of Louisville, Kentucky, Mr. Oz Mutz of Lakeland Fl., and the third donor is Jim Aikman.

If anyone else would like to establish and provide a similar Scholarship to the Saddlebred youth, please contact Jim Aikman.

Presentation of the drawing winners and important announcements will follow
