The Arabian Racing Cup (ARC) Board of Stewards led by Michelle Morgan presented the 24th Annual ARC Darley Stallion Auction featuring select international sires at the 30th Annual Darley Awards GALA DINNER, Sunday, April 2, 2017 in Hollywood, California. The Sheikh Mansoor Festival's announcer Derek "Tomo" Thompson served again as the entertaining auctioneer. The sale was accompanied by dinner and entertainment in the lavish setting of the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons hotel.

The highlight of this fantastic evening attracted international attention on the 9 coveted breedings. The bidding was exciting and a total of $68,500 was raised to support the Cup’s racing and breeding incentive projects. The highest bid of the auction was $23,000, paid by Nate Newby for a breeding to top stallion Munjiz.

Chief Steward Michelle Morgan expressed her excitement. “What a great weekend!” she said. “Congratulations to all the 2016 Darley winners on Friday night. Racing at beautiful Santa Anita race track was a wonderful way to celebrate Paddys Day’s big night. The Gala dinner and Arabian Racing Cup Stallion Auction were huge successes. It was a perfect weekend, and we are already looking forward to the 2017 Darleys. Thank you to HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak and Lara Sawaya for making this all possible.”
