The Congress Super Sale was definitely on to something when they introduced the yearling session and the 2YO Sales Stakes Classes. Each year more incredible yearlings are offered in the sale and the 2YO Stakes Classes have become a truly big deal.
On Thursday night the innaugural 2YO HUS stakes class was held with a purse of $17,500. The champion in a deep class was Chase Barnes riding Double Dose Of Iron by These Irons Are Hot and out of Im Money Too who sold for $11,ooo in the yearling sale, He was consigned by Gumz Farms to the 2018 sale and his full sister is offered in the 2019 sale. The reserve champion was Paige Quarterman on Deckorated by My Decklaration x Oh Sooo Sweet.
Friday night the pleasure horses took to the ring and in the non pro 2Yo Sales Stakes the champion in both the limited and open divisions was Ali Eidson on her stunning bay Made In The Moonlight who sold for $25,000 in the 2018 sale. Ali has only owned Stretch for three months. She had planned to show her champion all around horse, Hez Blazin Trouble this year but when “Perfect Parker” was sold to Bonnie Sheren, Ali was left without a ride. Over lunch one day her trainer Sara Simons told her they needed to go look at a horse, she tried him and the deal was done that day! This was Ali’s first Congress Championship. Ali commented that perhaps he needs to be crowned “Sensational Stretch” after tonight’s win.
Reserve in the non pro was Mallory Menard on Couldnt B Any Lazier by Lazy Loper who was consigned by Leeman farm in the 2018 sale and sold for $8000. In the limited division the reserve champion was So Dang Hot and Tessa Lynch Sutton. So Dang Hot sold for $7,200 as a yearling.
The open 2YO Western Pleasure Sales Stakes saw 23 entries. Erin Lieurance loped to the win on her OHK filly Glamazon Girl. This filly was no saled at $4,000 in the yearling sale and came back tonight to win $13,000 in the open as well as the limited win. Reserve in the Open Sales Stakes was Aaron Moses on Mama Made Me Hot for Voge Quarter Horses. The mare passed throught the sale for $95,000 in 2018.
Southern Whispers was the reserve champion in the limited division with her rider Shannon Curl Holbin for Gumz Farms. The beautiful filly by Its A Southern Things did not sell in 2018 when the gavel stopped at $11,000. Cleary it was a good decision by Amy Gumz to keep her back.
The 2019 Congress 2YO Sales Stakes classes paid out $107,000.
