SHELBYVILLE, Tenn.- The fourth annual Sand Creek Sales Breeders’ Choice Two And Three Year Old Sale was held March 3 and 4, 2006. Over 200 performance and pleasure colts were offered for sale displaying the industry’s finest, talented colts for the upcoming show season.

On Friday the sale started at noon, and on Saturday, it started at 10:00 a.m. Throughout the sale, the restaurant “Cafe at the Creek” served breakfast, lunch, and dinner to satisfy the buyers’ and sellers’ hunger.

            The top three highest selling horses averaged at $15,000 per horse. The average for the top five was right at $12,000 per horse.

           Two of the highest selling horses of the sale were both fillies. The highest seller for the weekend was Billy Gray’s I’m On My Own. This Armed and Dangerous filly brought $21,000.The beautiful flaxen mane and tail filly’s dam is Your’s Mine & Ours. Darrell Oliver from Alvaton, Ky., bought this two-year-old, and Billy Gray consigned her.

            There was a tie for the reserve highest sellers. One of the reserve highest sellers was The Cornerstone, selling for $12,000. The Cornerstone is a black two-year-old filly by The Stonecutter and out of Sky Bright. Kevin Luttrell consigned her, and Tim and Laura Cochran from Chatsworth, Ga., bought this filly. Jimmy Richardson at Richardson Farms in Cleveland, Tenn., will now train The Cornerstone.  She will be campaigned by Laura and Jimmy in two-year-old open and amateur classes.

            The other reserve highest seller belonged to The Big Red One, who also sold for $12,000.  The Big Red One is by RFK and out of Neon Copy. Neon Copy is the current Dam of the Year, and she produced Hey Hey Ole. This big, sorrel three-year-old will be the last colt out of this mare. The Big Red One was consigned by Jerry Collier from Rogersville, Ala., and was bought by Jack Heffington from Shelbyville, Tenn. 

            The fourth highest selling horse was Jose’s Irresistible. The two-year-old filly brought $7,500. She is by Jose’ Jose’ and out of a Generator mare named Glorious Generator. Joe Fleming Stables from Shelbyville, Tenn., consigned her.

            The fifth highest selling horse was Armed & Full of Promise. This sorrel three-year-old colt was sold for $6,500. He is by Armed and Dangerous and out of Promise Me. Rae Martin Stables of Leesville, S.C, consigned him.

At last year’s Sand Creek Breeders’ Classic sale, the current World Grand Champion Two-Year-Old, Gen On The Run was purchased and topped the sale. Everyone will be looking this year to see how this crop of the Sand Creek Breeders’ Classic Sale will do. The next Sand Creek Sale is less than two weeks away. It is the Trainers’ Show Select Broodmare Sale. It will be March 24-25, 2006. Friday, March 24 will be open consignment, while Saturday, March 25 will be top broodmares.
