The sale is expected to attract high-quality horses and create an amazing marketplace during the first weekend of the show, October 26 - 28.

The much anticipated $25,000 open and amateur working western rail classes, sponsored by Headley Quarter Horses, also return to the show. In addition, owners of horses competing in the open working western rail stakes at both the Nutrena AQHA and Adequan® Select World and the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio, will have a shot at an additional $10,000 in cash.
