Welcome to the
AMHR Stallion Sweepstakes Auction Website!!
Congratulations to Frank de Bem, owner of the High Selling Stallion
Dianne Connolly, Winning Bidder of
Michigan's Heir To The Throne (HOF) at $1,050.00!
For complete results of the 2016 Auction, please go to the 2016 results page below.
The AMHR Stallion Sweepstakes was established to give stallion owners an opportunity to profile their stallions, and win some money in the process. Most of these stallions do not stand to outside mares except through the AMHR Stallion Sweepstakes. Stallion owners nominate their stallion for a fee of $200 - this entitles them to designate one mare by the end of the year.
Mare owners from all over the country can then bid on a second breeding to that stallion in an on-line auction held in late February. All funds from the nominations and bids (minus the cost of DNA testing the foals that place) are returned to the top 8 foals in each of the two classes, and owners of the stallions siring the first place foals (classes are held at the following year Nationals).
Besides the special classes held at the AMHR Nationals, publicity for the stallions and their resulting foals is provided through several different social media sites, including a Facebook page
The payouts - and the excitement - can be substantial! We welcome you to check it out. Any questions, please contact the committee chair.
THANK YOU to Lois Simons of the Little Horse Barn Auction for again hosting this auction
and to Debby Bowen of Lil Beginnings for helping us with on-line promotion of the Auction!!
