We caught up to Alan Parker and Janet Hoke of Alan Parker Auctions, the force behind the 2013 Tom Powers Triple Challenge Futurity Yearling Sale. This sale was created to start the 2YO Maiden Western Pleasure Stakes class at the Tom Powers. Yearlings are run through the sale and bought, and then the following year are able to show in the class.  So the horses run through the 2012 sale will be showing today, and horses bought today will be shown in 2014. This year there is a $50,000 purse attached to this prestigious class, and everyone is anxious for the event happening later today.

This is the third year that Alan Parker is running the auction and the third year since it’s inception. However, this is the first year that they will be live streaming the entire sale! Observers are able to bid online, as well as to simply watch. Check out the video for more info!

We are quite excited to see how the sale goes this evening, as well as the major Stakes Class this afternoon!
