New York Morgan Stallion Service Auction 2020

A lively group of people gathered on February 1, 2020 to partake in 32nd annual NY Stallion Service Auction. The auction was held at The Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga Springs NY. The atmosphere was fun and energetic with great acoustics to provide a most enjoyable evening. Returning to read pedigree was Ivan Beattie and to auction off the breeding services of top Morgan stallions was David “Tuffy” Owens. The busy phone lines were handled by Mari Neidlinger, Ilene Goulette and Scott Neidlinger. Jillian Peek kept the tabs on the boards for the lively bidding while her sister Allison Peek kept the stallion presentations moving through smoothly. Pamela Turner, administrative secretary, handled the paperwork and Chairperson Danielle Neidlinger oversaw the event. 

The grand total for the evening was over $45,000 for the 32 stallions, 2 name your mare, and many extra items donated that made for a very exciting evening. After the first round of bidding the top 10 stallions came back for a second round. The top bid was $6,000 for Dressed Up GCH followed by the top ten of Cherrydale Casanova, Minion Millennium, Bazinga, CBMF Over The Moon, Akira Derringer GCH, EKL Shakedown, Dragonsmeade Sea Dragon, Astronomicallee and Ingate’s Eye of the Tiger.

The SSA committee would like to thank the generous stallion owners for their support and donation of the stallion services. A thank you is also in order to those who donated other items to show support of the auction. All monies generated by this auction minus expenses will be used in payouts at the New York Regional Morgan Show in September. All offspring of successfully paid bids of the stallions (and name your mare slots) are eligible to compete in the weanling in hand and four-year-old performance classes. Visit for information on the history of the auction, guidelines, past sweepstakes winners, and information on current stallions.
