Posted February 28, 2002
The committee for the Michigan Morgan Horse Breeders Futurity (MMHBF) have announced the date of their gala event entitled “A Brighter Future.” A fund raiser for the futurity program, the event will take place Sunday, April 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the Novi Hilton, in Novi, Mich.

Both live and silent auctions are planned including the opportunity to purchase stud fees to 17 quality Morgan stallions offered. Many mid-west Morgan trainers have also generously donated one month’s board and training for the 2002 year. Horse and non-horse related items will be available for bidding, including a trip to Florida, one week at Hilton Head, round trip airline tickets, a carriage driving harness, a profile page in the Morgan Breeders Guide, advertising opportunities, a 16 x 20 color photo from Howard Schatzberg, jewelry, and many other items too numerous to mention.

This year’s guest of honor is long-time Morgan breeder, Dr. Norman Kreiger of Rose Valley Morgans. Twenty percent of this year’s proceeds will go to the Dr. Norman Kreiger Geriatric Project at the Huron Valley Hospital, Commerce, Mich.

Breedings to the following stallions will be available: Baroncrest Nuggeteer, Blue Spruce Apollo, Century Contender, CKH Spirited Gift, CW’s Silver Dollar, Desert Flaire, Gradell’s Wild Magic, GSF Aslan, JDS Legal Enforcer, JL’s Natural Face, Manchester Regal Aire, Meet The Press, River Riders Rogue, Sail On Command, Troutbrook Alexander, Ultra’s Special Agent, and Willo Pond Knight Rebel.
