Legends Print To Highlight ASHA Gala Auction



An array of 13 items will be available for the Live Auction to be held, Saturday, February 18, at the ASHA Annual Gala, Marriott Griffin Gate, Lexington, Ky. The auction will be part of a great evening including the presentation of several prestigious awards, concluding with a dance band that promises to pack the floor.

Produced by Doug Shiflet, with additional photos by H. Leon Sargent, and painstakingly created by Shane Shiflet, the original 32 x 46 print known as “Legends Of Saturday Night” depicts the 25 horses shown by the 20 living trainers of Five-Gaited World’s Grand Champions. This beautiful work of art is matted and custom framed. It comes with a Letter of Authenticity, signed by the 20 trainers. Most of those 20 will be part of the Legends Of Saturday Night Luncheon which will be held that afternoon at the Marriott Griffin Gate. These legendary trainers will share their stories about what it took to get their horses to a level that was capable of winning a World’s Grand Championship and then they will take questions from the luncheon audience.

This historic print headlines a nice selection of auction items that will be available. You are encouraged to call ASHA today to make your reservations for the Luncheon and the Gala. In case you can’t make the Gala but would still like to bid, ASHA is making available a phone in service to take bids.
