Proceeds From Sale Of 2 Y.O. At Morgan Classics Benefit Sale To Be Donated To Hurricane Relief



    

(Sept. 22) Editor's Note: Exciting news! Saddle Horse Report has just learned that the UPHA will match funds raised from the auction of this consignment.

Following the recent tragedy in the
Gulf Coast region, Chris and Laura Kinnick have pledged to sell a well bred two-year-old gelding at the Morgan Classics Benefit Sale with all of the proceeds going to hurricane relief efforts. The Kinnicks took a trip to New Orleans
in 2004 where they enjoyed a great time. Chris, being a musician, especially enjoyed the music including a band called Lost Bayou Boys. Following the trip, they decided to name a youngster in honor of the band.
    

Now that this tragedy has occurred, the Kinnicks want to pay tribute to their memories of New Orleans by selling the promising gelding Lost Bayou Boy with the proceeds to benefit the region. His name now has much deeper meaning.
    

This two-year-old bay gelding sired by Stonecroft Byzantine and out of RBC Leah, the dam of Eye Spy, is an added attraction at the Morgan Classics Benefit Sale. He will be the only non-cataloged horse to sell. For further information or a video on this impressive youngster, please contact John and Belle Hufferd at Triumph Stables. The sale of Lost Bayou Boy and the generosity of the Kinnicks and the Morgan community will undoubtedly make headlines at the October 7 Morgan Classics Benefit Sale in Oklahoma City.
