Brother-Sister Act Tops Sand Creek Sale

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn.- The third annual Breeders’ Classic was held at Sand Creek Farm March 4 and 5, 2005. About 170 two and three-year-old pleasure and performance horses were presented at the sale, representing the finest examples of young talent the industry has to offer.

While the horses were a feast for the eyes, the “Cafe at the Creek” provided fine food and beverages to satisfy the attendees' need for sustenance throughout the sale.

Due to the success of last year's sale, the third annual Breeders’ Classic was expanded to cover two days, starting at noon on Friday, March 4. By the start of the sale Saturday morning, the parking lots were full, the shoulders of Route 231 were lined with vehicles and finding a seat in the sales pavilion was not an easy task.

The average of the top three entries exceeded $50,000, and the top 10 entries hit an average of $29,500, up from $17,000 last year.

Perhaps for the first time at any sale, the top two horses sold were brother and sister, both the result of embryonic transfer technology and consigned by Sand Creek Yearling Group. Sired by Gen’s Armed And Dangerous and out of Ms. Goldie, brother and sister will be worth watching for this show season. The sale’s top seller, Gen On The Run, was purchased by Michael and Ty Hart. Linda Brown is the proud, new owner of his sister, Sweet And Dangerous.

Third on the list was James Corlew’s acquisition of Ritzy And Royal, a filly sired by He’s Putting On The Ritz and out of Royal Silhouette. Queen Of The Silver Dollar, purchased by Doris Brown, came in fourth and the fifth entry was Sweet Honey In The Rock, now owned by Howard Eastridge.

Jose’s Wicked Feleena was the sixth highest seller and was purchased by Bernie Duncan. Seventh went to Grand Sweepstakes, formerly known as Touchdown Auburn. He was bought by Gonzo Pou and Herbert Derickson was the receiving trainer. Soaring Free soared into eighth place for new owner John Sharp and Dr. Jim and Lisa Baum’s selection of I’m An Indian Outlaw was ninth. J. Lo Jazz, now owned by Gordan Timmons, rounded out the top 10.

Sand Creek's Trainers’ Show Select Broodmare Sale will be held April 1-2. Performance and pleasure horses will be offered on Friday, with top broodmares being featured on Saturday. The deadline for entering a horse in the sale is Tuesday, March 15, 2005.
