Opportunity to Ride or Drive Four World's Champions



Through the generosity of four UPHA Chapter 14 owners the opportunity to ride or drive four highly acclaimed World's Champions from four different breeds will be available at the upcoming UPHA National Convention, January 6, 7, and 8 at the Boston Park Plaza, Boston, Mass. These rides and drives will be available to the winning bidders in the Silent Auction that will be held in the Vendor's Room throughout the convention.

Owned by the Kelley family's Victory Lane and trained by David Rand, twice Park Saddle World Grand Champion, as well as current Junior Exhibitor Park Saddle World Champion, Lamborghini In Black will represent the Morgan breed in the Silent Auction. Just a few years ago this dynamic performer also brought down the house in the UPHA 14 Symphony Of Champions making fans from all breeds. A World's Champion and Lexington Junior League Champion, among others, the elegant moving, white faced mare A Dream In Color will slow gait and rack in style with the winning bidder aboard. The unique opportunity to ride a gaited horse of this caliber is brought to us by Kate Codeanne and trainer Rob Turner.

Adding greatly to this all-star lineup, the Jan Lukens trained Free Willy and Mr.'s Bones will give their winning bidders the thrill of a lifetime. Owned by Jayne Romano, the legendary Free Willy is one of the all-time great road ponies of this era with championship titles from every major show in the industry.

Twice the Triple Crown Champions of the Amateur Roadster division, Mr.'s Bones and Charlie Jones have become celebrities at the highest level and this is your chance to sit behind and shift the gears of one of the greats. In addition to their drives, the individuals who purchase the drives for Free Willy and Mr.'s Bones will receive a day at Jan Lukens Stables, dinner, overnight accommodations and breakfast the following morning. This is a treat you won't want to miss.

Please join us and support the UPHA by bidding on these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
