2011 UPHA Incentive Sale Returning to the UPHA American Royal
The sale again this year will be on UPHA Classics Night. Yearlings and two-year-olds in training will be sold at the sale, which will be held immediately following the UPHA Five Gaited Classic Grand Championship on Thursday evening, November 17, 2011. The sale will begin by 9:00 p.m.
Entries close Monday October 10th, 2011.
The purpose of this sale is to raise incentive money to be paid back on the national level in the UPHA Classics program, offering breeders a viable marketplace for their Two Year Olds and Yearlings. Two Year Olds purchased through the 2011 sale will be eligible as three year olds in 2012, to compete for the incentive money raised from this sale. Yearlings purchased through the 2011 sale will be eligible as three year olds in 2013, to compete for the incentive money raised from this sale. The culmination will be at the 2012 and 2013 UPHA/American Royal National Championship Horse Shows, when bonus money will be awarded to the eligible horse that placed highest in the following UPHA Classics Championships:
UPHA Three Year Old Five-Gaited
UPHA Three Year Old Three-Gaited
UPHA Three Year Old Fine Harness
UPHA Three Year Old Park Pleasure
Prize money awarded in the UPHA Classics Incentive program so far totals over $140,000, with 10% of that total being paid back to the original consignors!
Eligible Two Year Olds and Yearlings for the program automatically include those purchased through the UPHA sale. Yearlings will be presented through the sale in hand, and all Two Year Olds will be presented through the sales arena, in harness or under saddle, as they would be shown under United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) guidelines.
