Frequently asked questions about the Premier Sires 2-Year-Old Absolute Sale:

What do you mean when you say this is an absolute sale?

As an absolute sale the horse must be sold through the sale ring in order to be eligible for any sale incentive money or to compete in any sale incentive class. Sales to a family member do not constitute a sale.

What classes will be part of the 3-Year-Old Versatility Stakes?

The 3-Year-Old Versatility Stakes will follow the model started by the AQHA World Show’s 3-Year-Old Pleasure Versatility Challenge. Horses will be shown sequentially in three classes: 1) Versatility Pattern to count for 40 percent, followed by 2) Western Pleasure to count for 40 percent, and finishing with 3) Conformation to count for 20 percent. Horses will remain in the make-up ring or show arena for the duration of the event. Horses must show in all classes to receive final placings. The same exhibitor must show the horse in all three classes.

How will the sale alumni purse be split?

The sale alumni purse will pay 90% of the alumni purse earnings to the owners of the alumni earning payment. The consignors of the alumni purse earners will receive 10% of the purse earnings.

Why can't I put a reserve on my horse?

In order to make the sale as transparent as possible and maintain integrity, this sale is being run on a without-reserve basis. Pursuant to Kentucky law, the right to bid in this sale is reserved for all sellers. Therefore, if the consignor does not wish to sell their horse, the consignor must be the final bidder. As this is an absolute sale, horses purchased by the consignor or a member of their family will not be eligible to compete for any sale incentive money or in any sale incentive class.

Why do I have to provide radiographs of the horse I am consinging?

Submitting radiographs makes the sale more transparent for potential buyers giving them more knowledge about the horse(s) they may be bidding on.

Can I still bid on a horse if I can't attend the sale?

Yes, you can! Individuals who are interested in bidding on a horse in the sale but cannot attend in person can bid by phone. Bidders must complete a telephone bid form and submit it to sale management along with a copy of their drivers license and valid credit card number no later than 48 hours before the scheduled auction start time. On the day of the auction, a member of the sale staff will call you at the provided number prior to when the horse is scheduled to enter the sale arena.
