In 2019, participants and members were asked to vote on a show location for the Three-Year-Old Sweepstakes classes, with more than 80 percent voting for the All American Horse Classic (AAHC). The AAHC has announced the addition of added prize money for the 2021-2023 classes.
“The All American Horse Classic, held in Indianapolis, Indiana, from September 8-11, 2021, has added $60,000 in prize money to the prestigious [American Saddlebred Horse and Breeders Association] Three-Year-Old Sweepstakes. AAHC and friends of the Sweepstakes added $5,000 per division in all four 3-year-old classes each year for a total of $20,000 per year over the next three years. We hope to build excitement for the breed and incentivize breeders and owners to keep supporting the American Saddlebred. The AAHC is thrilled and honored to be the decades-long home of the ASHBA Three-Year-Old Sweepstakes,” stated Dawn Kendrick, AAHC show manager.
