Southern Saddlebred Sales Adding Two Year Old Showcase and Extending Deadline

Following strong interest in their Yearling Showcase, Southern Saddlebred Sales has received requests to also offer a Showcase for Two Year Olds.  “We are thrilled with the support we are receiving for the Yearling Showcase and have decided to open the program up to Two Year Olds as well, “ said James Hale.  Two year olds may be presented in hand, under saddle, in harness, or in the long lines.  “We have an excellent set up and a safe area to present a young horse in the lines,” Hale said, “and we want to give people that option so that these prospects can be shown to the best of their ability. “

Young horses entered in the Showcase section of the sale will pay a $250 entry fee up front.  100% of the commissions earned on the sale of these Showcase entries will be awarded as Bonus Prize Money in 2013.  The Yearlings will be eligible for prize money next Fall as Two Year olds – in Three Gaited, Five Gaited and Fine Harness Showcase classes, either in a full bridle or a snaffle bit.  Two Year Olds sold this Fall will be eligible for Three Year Old Showcase classes in Park Pleasure, Three Gaited, Five Gaited or Fine Harness next year at the Fall Finale horse show.  Owners may place a reserve bid on their entry and if the reserve is not attained, the 5% reserve fee collected will be also placed in the Bonus Prize Money account and the entry will still be eligible to compete in the 2013 Showcase classes.  

Because of this addition to the Fall Sale, as well as the large number of people just returning from the successful All American Classic last week, SSS is extending their entry deadline to September 15th.
