New York Stallion Service Auction Answers the Call To Action

The 2011 NY SSA will take place on Jan. 29, 2011 in the ballroom of the Saratoga Hilton in beautiful Saratoga Springs, NY. As an additional incentive and to show our enthusiasm for the Morgan Pavilion, when a stallion’s service sells at the 2011 auction, the NY SSA will donate a brick with his registered name on it to the Morgan Pavilion in the Kentucky Horse Park.

Stallions already committed to the 2011 auction include Astronomicallee, Bri-B XTC, HVK Man About Town, Hylee’s Galaxy Seven, Hylee’s Rare Flaire, Illegal Motion, Immortal Command, Man In Motion, Middlemist Midnight Magic, Stonecroft Byzantine, Sunny Acres Magic Man, Town Assets, UVM stallion of choice, Whispering In The Wind, Stand And Deliver, JDS Paladin Pazazz, Treble’s Tanqueray, GKB Coal Magic, Ultras Special Agent, Issues ‘N Answers, Equinox Challenge, and Roberto Cavelli. We are grateful to the owners who have generously donated to the NY SSA for future of the breed. Keep watching the website, for updates to the list.

The NY SSA offers 3 Sweepstakes classes at the NY Regional Championship show for ALL offspring of the stallions whose services are sold at our Stallion Service Auction. You don’t have to be the winning bidder to participate in the Sweepstakes classes. Proceeds from the auction, plus any accumulated interest, are paid out as prize money in the Sweepstakes classes. NEW FOR 2011 NYSSA~ $5,000 added bonus money in the Weanling Sweepstakes class! Only owners of donated stallions and successful bidders are eligible to compete for the bonus money. The bonus money will be evenly divided amongst all eligible weanlings who place in the top 10. In 2010 the Weanling Sweepstakes winner took home $2800, and the reserve $1400. In 2012, the top 10 weanlings will take home a minimum of an additional $500. There are also two Sweepstakes performance classes for 4 year olds. This year the winner of each class took home $7000, the reserve took home $3500, and the eighth place took home $525! Of course, the higher the bids at the auction, the more prize money there will be.

The New York Stallion Service Auction, proudly sponsored by Purina Mills, is held in a beautiful setting in historic Saratoga Springs, NY with educational programs, food, and drink for those in attendance. Stallion owners set up promotional displays in the ballroom and are available to talk with breeders during the cocktail party prior to the auction. There will be a video of all of the stallions on a big screen during the cocktail hour and still pictures of each horse when his service comes up for auction. If you have never attended the NY Stallion Service Auction, it’s an opportunity that you won’t want to miss.
