STDB Stallion Auction
The New Vocations 19th Annual Stallion Auction runs Tues Feb 6th through 2:00 pm Thursday Feb 8th at www.ongait.com. The auction is conducted in an Open Ended format that allows for bidding slightly beyond the 2:00 p.m. deadline if less than five minutes have elapsed since the last bid on a particular breeding.
Breedings to Always A Virgin, Guccio, Muscles Yankee, Rock N Roll Heaven, McArdle, Dejarmbro and Well Said are among the seasons already donated to help rehab, retrain and rehome retired Standardbreds.
Participants are asked to be considerate and not bid for mares over 20, ones that have been barren two or more consecutive years, any that are due after May 15, and those that are already booked.
Additional breedings will be available for purchase throughout the season. Please contact Dot Morgan at 937-947-4020 (email@example.com) or Winnie Morgan Nemeth at 734-320-7918 (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have a breeding to donate.
New Vocations is the largest racehorse adoption program in North America accepting over 450 retired racehorses each year. Proceeds from this stallion auction go toward the rehabilitation, retraining, and placement of retired Standardbreds. “We would like to thank all the stallion donors for their generous support,” said Executive Director Dot Morgan. “They enable us to provide rehabilitative care for these horses and equip them with crucial skills prior to placing them in qualified homes. Every horse we adopt becomes an ambassador for the breed.” Thank you for supporting New Vocations’ Stallion Auction. All proceeds go toward the rehabilitation, retraining, and placement of retired racehorses.

Mares that do not have foals are very costly to the Program.
