Entries are open for the 53rd Annual Congress Super Sale!
“Entries are open for the 53rd Annual Congress Super Sale, held annually with the All American Quarter Horse Congress produced by the Ohio Quarter Horse Association,” announces Mike Jennings, of the Professional Horse Services, LLC team that manages the auction. “We encourage sellers to enter their good horses early this year. In 2018 the auction filled and we had to turn down some horses.”
The 2019 Congress Super Sale will again feature three sessions. There will be two Yearling Sale Stakes sessions, one for Western Pleasure yearlings and, for the second year, a session for Hunter Under Saddle yearlings. The third session, the “Super Session”, is open to show horses, broodmares, stallions and other prospects.
The 2019 Sales Stakes classes will pay large purses to yearlings that were offered in the 2018 Congress Super Sale Stakes sessions and paid nomination fees at the auction.
$89,500 is the purse for the 3rd Annual Western Pleasure Sale Stakes class, which includes $10,000 for Limited riders added by OQHA. There will be Open and Non Pro divisions with the purse being pro-rated based on the number of entries showing.
The 2019 entries will compete for the purse money, the titles and their place on the Vic Clark Perpetual trophies.
$17,500 is the purse for the first Hunter Under Saddle Sale Stakes Class, which includes $1,500 for Limited riders from a sponsorship by Mike and Stephanie Jennings of Professional Horse Services, LLC.
Entry forms can be found on the Pro Horse Services website home page and the page for the Congress Super Sale - https://prohorseservices.com/2019/2319/
Sellers can use the convenient Online Entry form or download a form to complete and return by fax or email. Paints and Appaloosas will also be accepted for the Congress Super Sale since those breeds can compete in the Congress Stakes classes.
NEW for this year – a photo will be required with the entry form for entries in the Sales Stakes sessions. This photo will be used by the Sale Committee to assess the overall quality of the entry in the event more entries are received than can be accepted and some have to be returned. This does not have to be a promotional quality photo.
The 2018 Congress Super Sale showed a strong market for quality prospects, show horses and breeding stock. Full results for six previous Congress Super Sales can be found on the results page of the Pro Horse Services website.
