35th Annual Gallop Auction to Feature Top Pleasure and Hunt Seat Stallions
This year’s Gallop Auction is offering an incredible lineup of stallions from all over the United States with breeding fees ranging from $500 to $4,100 per service. This year’s lineup includes Congress and National Champions and World and Reserve World Champions. Many of the stallions are leading sires in the industry including Lazy Loper, Blazing Hot, Its A Southern Thing, Batt Man, VS Flatline, VS Code Red, The Lopin Machine, Extremely Hot Chips, Hot Ones Only, Hubba Hubba Huntin, Certainly A Vision, Nite Moves, I Got Em Talkin, John Simon and No Doubt Im Lazy, among others. Last year’s Gallop Annual Charity Stallion Services Auction high selling stallion was Lazy Loper.
The event opens Sunday, January 28th at noon, PST with the opening ceremony kicking off at noon. Bidding at the event and live-streaming of the entire auction can be viewed online at www.GallopAuction.com. The live-streaming will allow for national and international bidding. It will also allow interested parties who cannot personally attend the auction to participate via toll-free phone lines.
Just as outstanding as the breeding services are the non-service packages available at the Gallop Auction. Non-service packages are auctioned off in between breeding services and they offer many in the equine industry an opportunity to support and participate. These packages will continue to be added up through the final week before to the auction, so keep checking back on the website for new additions.
Some of the fantastic packages you can expect at this year’s auction include: a two night, three day vacation at the Resort at Paws Up in Montana; a six-night Ireland adventure for two; a package to attend the Westminster Dog Show in New York; and a Churchill Downs VIP package.
With all of this excitement, don’t forget the primary mission. All net proceeds from the Gallop Stallion Services Auction go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Spokane, enabling them to continue serving hundreds of families.
Imagine if your child was sick. What would you do if you had to fly to a hospital in a different city far from your home? Would you know where to go? When you arrived at the hospital, where would you put your extra clothes? Where would you shower? Where would you wash your clothes? Who would you turn to for help? These and many other questions are all answered daily by the volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Spokane.
Families are provided temporary lodging, comfort, and support while their children are receiving medical services. The House provides a consistent and caring helping hand, lessening the mental and financial strain on the families. It allows them to focus on the most important thing, supporting their children.
There is no better time to shake that cabin fever. The Gallop Annual Charity Stallion Services Auction and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Spokane look forward to seeing you all on Sunday, January 28, 2018, at the Northern Quest Resort and Casino Family Pavilion. Northern Quest is located at 100 N. Hayford Road, Airway Heights, WA.
