2018 Ben Ali Haggin Cup Is Won by a Mustang

 

James Ben Ali Haggin raised thoroughbreds at his Sacramento ranch.  In 1886, his horse – Ben Ali – won the Kentucky Derby.  In 1964, Mr. Haggin’s grandson donated the Ben Ali Haggin Cup (in his honor), now awarded to the horse, among the top 10 finishers of the Tevis Cup 100 Miles in One Day Ride, considered “to be in the most superior physical condition”.  This year on July 29th, the recipient happened to be a Mustang; that’s a first!  90% of the horses who finish the Ride are Arabians, 1% are Mustangs.  Refer to teviscup.org for this story and more.

 

On September 15th, Saddle Started Mustangs will be sold by competitive bid in Elk Grove at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center.  View them, meet the trainers, watch a training demo and buy one.  Learn more at blm.gov/programs/wild-horse-and-burro/adoption-and-sales/events.
