Historic Stallion Auction Slated For UPHA Convention

Officials for the United Professional Horsemen’s Association (UPHA) have announced an incredible opportunity for breeders of American Saddlebreds, Morgans and Hackneys. On Saturday evening, Jan. 8, 2011 headlining the live auction at the National Convention will be stud services to World’s Grand Champion producing sires from all three breeds: Callaway’s Blue Norther, Noble Flaire, and a choice from three Hackney stallions: Heartland Head Of The Class, Heartland Code Of Honor and Heartland Top Gun. None of these stallion services are available to the public so this auction will be the only opportunity to breed to these outstanding individuals and producers.

The upcoming UPHA Convention will be held at the Boston Park Plaza, Boston, MA. The Park Plaza is one of the city’s top hotels and convention sites and will serve as a great back drop for the Jan. 6, 7, and 8 gathering of trainers, owners, and breeders from the UPHA’s Saddlebred, Morgan and Hackney communities.

A couple of additional items, including packages for both the Kentucky State Fair and Morgan Grand National, will accompany the stallion services in Saturday night’s auction. Also on the agenda that evening will be the awarding of the Overall Horses and Ponies Of The Year, the Trainer Of The Year and the Hall of Fame. The evening will close with attendees dancing the night away to the sounds of Boston’s top band, Soul Kitchen.

Never before has a lineup of stallion services from the three breeds been offered at one auction. The UPHA is grateful to Tony Weldon, Herbert Kohler and Darrel Kolkman for their generous donations and expects great interest in this rare offering.
