2012 Scottsdale Show Blog - 2/24
Thursday was a big day at the Scottsdale Arabian horse show. Many people were talking about the success of the Scottsdale Signature Stallion Auction and discussing who were the successful bidders and what mares they would be using the breedings with. But before they make their final decision breeders lined the rail to watch the Scottsdale Signature Auction Classes held Thursday afternoon. These classes are exclusively for the horses resulting from Signature Auction breedings and the payouts were huge! Champion Two-Year-Old Gelding TKS Oh My Gatti (KM Bugatti x Khemos Fanci by The Chief Justice), owned by Kris and Tim Simmons won over $10,500. The investment they made purchasing a breeding to KM Bugatti four years ago paid out big time!!!!! TKS Oh My Gatti will be presented along with other champions at Midwest Station I, owned by Bob, Janene, Austin and Olivia Boggs. Visit their website www.bobboggs.com for directions.
The popular stallion presentations began with a kickoff party at Ted Carson who presented SF Veraz (Gazal Al Shaqab x Veronica GA by Versace), owned by Patti and Mike Scheier and the sire of the sensational International Champion Yearling Filly and Junior Champion Filly, Jullye Al Gazal, owned by Larry Schopf.

Jullye Al Gazal is out of a daughter of Jullyen El Jamaal and has created quite a buzz; she was presented by Keith Krichke who is hosting a special presentation at his stalls at the show. Greg Knowles of Arabian Expressions has his presentation at his farm on Friday at 2:00pm where he will present the stallion Jiuliusz de Wiec and others.
