As expected, the prices at the Fasig-Tipton Texas Summer Yearlings Sale were a far cry – a very, very far cry – from those of the Saratoga Sale. Of my top ten selections, seven sold and three did not reach their reserves. They sold for a total of $55,900.
Listed below are the horses featured in Part One, with descriptions of the results of the auction:
Hip #5: Sold for $1,200 to Darrel Bravenec.
Hip #9: Sold for $5,000 to Roy W. Cobb.
Hip #10: Sold for $2,500 to Coy Mark and Lori Collinsworth.
Hip #23: Sold for $3,700 to Warren Winslow.
Hip #30: Drove the hammer to $9,500, but did not reach the reserve.
Hip #38: Sold for $12,000 to Wesley Melcher.
Hip #39: Drove the hammer to $19,000, but did not reach the reserve. Was sold privately for $15,000.
Hip #106: Sold for $26,000 to Linda Sims as among one of the top ten highest-priced horses to sell.
Hip #166: Sold for $5,500 to George Barclay.
Hip #169: Drove the hammer to $9,500, but did not reach the reserve.
It certainly would have helped to have been able to evaluate conformation as well!
