       WHITE PINE, Tenn. - The Smoky Mountain Sale hosted a great turnout with a total of 220 entries. It is a two-day event that was held on Feb. 23 and 24, 2007, at the Smoky Mountain Expo Center in White Pine, Tenn. The sale got under way on Friday evening around 6 p.m. with the starting of a great selection of two-year-olds. Over 60 colts paraded through the sale for selection. Crowds gathered around inside and out looking for their special horse. Many spectators, buyers and trainers came out for the event from all across the country.
“Whether you are looking for a pleasure horse for your family or a show horse to ride, you will find it at this sale,” said Kenny Smith.
The crowd and purchasers were as eager as ever to say that everything is going to be OK in the horse industry.
            The Santana Pushover topped the sale being purchased by Ronnie Corey of Gray, Ky. Brandye Mills of Richmond, Ky., is the receiving trainer of this talented horse. He is sired by Generator’s Santana and out of Chantilly Pushover.
Jewel’s Black Charmer captured the number two position. Wilson and Davis of Nicholasville, Ky., selected Jewel’s Black Charmer who is out of Spirit Misfit and is sired by Pusher’s Jewel Thief.
