Final week of Defiance County auction

Edgerton, OH — The Defiance County (Ohio) Area Horsemen’s Association is in the final week of its silent auction for free breedings. They have one Ohio pacing stallion and three Ohio trotting stallions in the auction.

The Ohio pacing stallion is Heaven’s Gait (Rock N Roll Heaven-Booya Beach). Heaven’s Gait takes up residence at Bear Creek Stables of Middlefield, Ohio.

The three Ohio trotting stallions are De La Creme (Dejarmbro-Celebrity Cream), Mission Accepted (Manofmanymissions-Witty Girl), and Run Director (Kadabra-Keep The Spirit). De La Creme provides his services at Hidden Acres Equine of Millersburg, Ohio; Mission Accepted resides at Winterwood Farm of Bellville, Ohio; and Run Director stands at Abby Stables of Sugarcreek, Ohio.

Bids on all stallions close at 5 p.m. on Friday (April 5). At that time, the person with the second-highest bid will have the opportunity to raise his or her bid. The bidding will continue between the two highest bidders until one drops out.

The winning bidder on each stallion must pay the Defiance County Area Horsemen’s Association 10 percent of the winning bid or $100, whichever is greater, before the mare is bred. The winning bidder must pay the Association the balance of the winning bid when the mare foals in 2025.
