TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT FOR THE 2021 ALL AMERICAN CUP STALLION SHOWCASE & AUCTION.

If you’d like to participate in the All American Cup, there are several ways to participate in the action! 

 

  1. The event will be live-streamed.  Live-stream instructions will be posted on our website in the days leading up to the event.

  2. We are currently accepting pre-bids online for ALL stallions participating in the 2021 All American Cup.  To submit a pre-bid and/or a highest bid, visit https://www.allamericancup.org/2021-stallions,  browse and select your favorite stallion, then click on your stallion-of-choice to submit a pre-bid.  The live auction will open at the highest opening bid received for each stallion.  If you choose to submit a ‘highest bid’ as well, AAC staff will bid on your behalf (incrementally), until the auction exceeds your highest bid.  

  3. We have bolstered our capacity to handle call-in live bidding this year based on record demand.  If you would like to call-in and participate in the live bidding, you MUST make a reservation in advance.  You can either make a reservation on the pre-bid form (above), OR you can respond to this email and request a phone call for your stallion-of-choice. An AAC staff member will call you prior to the start of the live auction for your specified stallion(s).  Please note that the live stream will have a 30-40 second delay, so we recommend not watching the live stream while calling-in to bid.

 

The final stallion auction order will be published online (and through social media) forty-eight hours prior to the start the of auction (January 21st at 6:00 PM).  All call-in reservations and pre-bids, MUST be received by 6:00 PM on Friday, January 23rd, twenty-four hours prior to the start of the live auction.

 

Another new feature this year, we will offer a secondary auction in the weeks following the live auction for any stallion breedings that do not sell on January 23rd.  Given the circumstances in 2020-21, we want to provide the maximum number of opportunities for interested breeders to purchase breedings from our amazing group of stallions.

 

We are anticipating record bidding between the live audience, online bidding, and call-in’s.  The more information we have in-advance, the smoother things will run, so please let us know as soon as possible if you plan to participate as a call-in bidder.

The 2021 All American Cup Stallion Showcase and Auction will be held in a socially-distant, in-person setting on January 23, 2021.  The AAC is excited to announce a return to the lifeblood of our industry by holding the event in a place we all enjoy - an American Saddlebred barn!  In honor of two great legends we lost this year, Jim Aikman and Dr. Scott Bennett, we are THRILLED to announce a return to the training facility that formerly housed Alliance Stud, now home to Lead Way Farm.  New owners Andre and Caitlin van Schalkwyk, have graciously offered to host the 2021 event, and we are excited to get back to what everyone loves the most - show horses, entertainment, and one hell-of-an auction$!
