Third Annual UPHA Classics Incentive Yearling Sale Set for Kansas City


The United Professional Horsemen’s Association and the Board of the UPHA American Royal National Championship Horse Show are excited to announce that the 2006 UPHA Classics Incentive Saddlebred Yearling sale will be held in Kansas City during the 2006 Horse Show.


The sale will be held on Friday, November 17th, 2006, in Hale Arena. A buffet breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m., followed by the sale starting at 9:00 a.m.  Saddlebred yearlings sold through the 2006 sale will be eligible for added prize money when they compete in the 2008 UPHA Classic Grand Championships.


This will be the third consecutive year for UPHA’s Yearling Sale to be held during the UPHA American Royal National Championship.  Previous sales have been highly successful, with yearlings bringing top dollar. At the first two sales held in Kansas City, the sale topping yearlings brought high bids of $100,000.


The 38 yearlings that are consigned the sale will be exposed to a large audience of potential buyers and will be showcased in a horse show-type atmosphere.  Buyers will be attending the National Championship from all over the country, and will have an opportunity to be one of the “lucky ones” to come away from Kansas City with a new future star.  As the UPHA American Royal National Championship Horse Show has been the home of the Dabora/UPHA Classic Grand Championships for many years, it seemed only fitting that these young horses start their Classics career at the show where they might ultimately be awarded a large purse of Incentive Sale prize money.

Some $35,000 will be paid out this year to three-year-olds that were purchased through the 2004 sale. Already such world’s champions as Marching Orders and Coco Royale have been purchased through the sale.

If you would like more information on the UPHA Classics Incentive Yearling sale, please contact Sale Chairman John T. Jones at (513) 226-8155, or the UPHA Office at (859) 231-5070, Email  The complete list and pedigrees of the yearlings that are consigned, is posted on our web site,
