The Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association Political Action Committee will hold its third annual online stallion season auction Jan. 24, 25, and 26 to benefit the PAC and the racehorse retirement program Turning For Home. The auction will take place at www.thoroughlybred.com.
Among the stallion seasons the auction will feature are Rockport Harbor, Jump Start , E Dubai, Wiseman's Ferry, Cat Thief , Drosselmeyer, Jersey Town , Tale Of Ekati , Nicanor, Giacamo, Smarty Jones , Silver Trainand others.
"We are particularly pleased to have Wiseman's Ferry—sire of 2012 Horse of the Year Wise Dan," said Jeb Hannum, executive secretary of the PHBA. "Also, we have E Dubai, sire of Fort Larned . The auction highlights the fact that the sires of two Horses of the Year finalists are now based in Pennsylvania."
"The money raised from the previous auctions has helped us protect the Race Horse Development Fund and we will continue to work with the Thoroughbred and Standardbred horsemen and breeders to inform our lawmakers about the importance of racing and breeding to the state's agricultural economy," Hannum added.
