Tune in at 10 a.m. on November 11 for the 2012 AQHA World Championship Show Sale in Oklahoma City, which will be live-streamed for free at www.aqha.com/worldshow.
Held in conjunction with the AQHA World Championship Show at Oklahoma State Fair Park, the AQHA World Show Sale offers some of the industry’s leading performers and producers. Prospective bidders will have the chance to watch the horses in action at the preview, which will also be live-streamed for free. The preview starts at 1 p.m. on November 10 in the Performance Arena.
Before then, bidders must complete a Buyers and Prospective Bidders Checking Account Verification form. The sale office, located in the alley by Barn 6, opens at 1 p.m. on November 8.
While the sale will be live-streamed, there will be no online bidding. However, over-the-phone bids will be accepted; call (405) 948-6788 to bid over the phone.
“Every American Quarter Horse fan has a dream of one day owning a world champion,” said Doug Hayes, AQHA director of business development and the in-house staff person in charge of the sale. “This year, we assembled an AQHA World Show Sale Committee, which comprises some of the industry’s top professionals and breeders. The committee was tasked with screening prospective sale horses. The result is a group of high-quality horses, and we hope that buyers will walk away with future AQHA world champions.”
To view a list of sale horses, visit www.aqha.com/horsesale. The digital version of the AQHA World Show Sale catalog is available for free download on a computer or iPad. Print catalogs are available at the AQHA booth in the trade show and in the sale office.
