MM Auction Services, LLC would like to welcome you to our 2nd Annual Diamonds in the Desert Premier Horse Sale at the Plaza Hotel and Casino, Showroom. We are excited to bring 75 of the Country’s PREMIER horses and consignors to Las Vegas during Cowboy Christmas for you to pick from. Our mission is to bring the BEST of all performance horse disciplines to one location, making it easier for everyone to find their next high quality partner.
All horses are nominated during the month of July then scored by our committee using our rubric. Only the top 75 horses will sell at sale. That’s the first sifting process! The 2nd sifting process is when they show up in Vegas. Our vet, Dr. Paul Zancanella and Crew, will throughly vet check all horses including random drug tests. If they pass, they sell at sale! We expect you as the buyer to do your homework and call consignors in advance. Please ask consignors lots of questions, go to their homes and ride the horses, be at the Plaza all three days to throughly watch the horses, and pick the ones that best fit you.
The Breeder’s Cup Sale took place from 1970’s – 1980’s where race horses sold for six digit figures. Their ride in and out of the ballroom sale ring was The Plaza’s freight elevator which is still there today. John Davis Gaughan, Sr., known as Jackie Gaughan, was the owner of the Plaza at the time of the horse sales back in the day and remembers them well. Plaza’s current CEO, Jonathan Jossel, couldn’t be more excited to have Cowboys and Rodeo Action back to downtown Las Vegas!
