2017 LBS FEATURED STALLION —WC HANDSOME HARRY

The 2017 LBS Committee is pleased to announce that WC HANDSOME HARRY will be the featured stallion for the 2017 event. This will be the first and possibly only time WC HANDSOME HARRY will be available to the general public. Handsome Harry is sired by WGC Twin Willow’s Handsome Dan and out of Heartland Mary Belle who is by King's Brass. Although he is only seven years old, Harry has had a distinguished show career. Harry has the distinction of being the sole winner of both the AHHS LBS Weanling and Three Year Old Performance classes. In addition he has worn the blue ribbon on three separate occasions at the World Championship Kentucky State Fair Horse Show. The latest was 2016 when he was the WC Harness Pony Stallion Gelding.

 

Needless to say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Make sure you are the final bidder on this outstanding young stallion. All proceeds from the Feature Stallion will be added to the prize money for the AHHS LBS Three Year Old Performance Class.

 

The AHHS Limited Breeders' Sweepstakes Committee appreciates the continuing support from Golden Creek Farm, Mary and Jeff McClean for the LBS program.

How Do You Enter The Hoosier Hackney Futurity?

It is a simple process to nominate your Hackney pony for the Hoosier Hackney Futurity. All owners of stallions and mares have the option to nominate Hackneys for the Futurity on or before April 10th of the current year. Information is mailed to all members of the Hoosier Hackney Association. Sustaining payments must be paid on weanlings May 31st and July 1st of the current year. If any payment is missed the weanling is no longer eligible for the duration of the Futurity. Sustaining payments must be made each year to keep the entry eligible in the Hoosier Hackney Futurity. If the payment is not made the entry is no longer eligible for the Futurity.

 

It is recommended that you be sure and let perspective buyers know that your stallions, mares, weanlings through 5-Year-Old are eligible for the Hoosier Hackney Futurity. Advertising that your Hackneys are nominated may bring buyers from other areas who are looking for something which can compete in the Futurities.

MID-WEST FUTURITY

The Mid-West Hackney Futurity offers one of the largest futurities for Hackney ponies in the world. It is a "true futurity" in that the sire and dam must be registered in the American Hackney Stud Book or the Canadian Registry and must be nominated in the Mid-West Futurity by April 10th of the year the foal is born. The foal must then be nominated by May 31st in order to be eligble. The resulting foal must be kept eligible each year by paying a yearly nomination fee. The Mid-West Futurity offers classes for weanlings through 3 year olds. Jackpot classes for 4 and 5 year olds are also offered for ponies that have been kept eligible through their younger years.

 

The Mid-West Hackney Association began with a small group of interested breeders and trainers in 1954 with the goal of promoting the showing of the Hackney pony at shows in the Midwest. The first futurity classes were held at the 1955 Illinois State Fair and continue to be held there today. The first futurity offered four classes and had 33 ponies that made final payments. The premiums in each of the four classes were as follows:

 

  • 1st: $241.00
  • 2nd: $180.75
  • 3rd: $ 90.38
  • 4th: $ 60.25
  • 5th: $ 30.12

 

The Mid-West Hackney Futurity has grown over the years to now offer 17 classes for weanlings through three-year-olds, jackpot classes for ponies four and five years old that have been kept eligible through their younger years, a junior exhibitor weanling showmanship class, and new in 2007, is an amateur unshod weanling class. The prize money paid in the 2010 futurity for weanlings through three-year-olds is as follows:

 

  • 1st: $1,351.25
  • 2nd: $ 844.53
  • 3rd: $ 506.72
  • 4th: $ 337.81
  • 5th: $ 168.90
  • 6th: $ 84.45
  • 7th: $ 84.45
  • 8th: $ 84.45

 

The first place payouts in the 4- and 5-Year-Old Jackpot Classes ranged from $401.07 to $744.84 in 2010.

 

Nominate and be a part of the Mid-West Hackney Futurity, where it pays to raise and show Hackney ponies!

2017 LBS FEATURED STALLION —WC HANDSOME HARRY

The 2017 LBS Committee is pleased to announce that WC HANDSOME HARRY will be the featured stallion for the 2017 event. This will be the first and possibly only time WC HANDSOME HARRY will be available to the general public. Handsome Harry is sired by WGC Twin Willow’s Handsome Dan and out of Heartland Mary Belle who is by King's Brass. Although he is only seven years old, Harry has had a distinguished show career. Harry has the distinction of being the sole winner of both the AHHS LBS Weanling and Three Year Old Performance classes. In addition he has worn the blue ribbon on three separate occasions at the World Championship Kentucky State Fair Horse Show. The latest was 2016 when he was the WC Harness Pony Stallion Gelding.

 

Needless to say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Make sure you are the final bidder on this outstanding young stallion. All proceeds from the Feature Stallion will be added to the prize money for the AHHS LBS Three Year Old Performance Class.

 

The AHHS Limited Breeders' Sweepstakes Committee appreciates the continuing support from Golden Creek Farm, Mary and Jeff McClean for the LBS program.

2017 LBS FEATURED STALLION —WC HANDSOME HARRY

The 2017 LBS Committee is pleased to announce that WC HANDSOME HARRY will be the featured stallion for the 2017 event. This will be the first and possibly only time WC HANDSOME HARRY will be available to the general public. Handsome Harry is sired by WGC Twin Willow’s Handsome Dan and out of Heartland Mary Belle who is by King's Brass. Although he is only seven years old, Harry has had a distinguished show career. Harry has the distinction of being the sole winner of both the AHHS LBS Weanling and Three Year Old Performance classes. In addition he has worn the blue ribbon on three separate occasions at the World Championship Kentucky State Fair Horse Show. The latest was 2016 when he was the WC Harness Pony Stallion Gelding.

 

Needless to say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Make sure you are the final bidder on this outstanding young stallion. All proceeds from the Feature Stallion will be added to the prize money for the AHHS LBS Three Year Old Performance Class.

 

The AHHS Limited Breeders' Sweepstakes Committee appreciates the continuing support from Golden Creek Farm, Mary and Jeff McClean for the LBS program.
