            SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Sand Creek Trainers’ Show Select Broodmare Sale was held Saturday, March 24, 2007, during the National Trainers’ Show in Shelbyville, Tenn. The sale was held at the sale pavilion on the famed Sand Creek Farm.
            The large crowd saw numerous broodmares, pleasure and show horses change ownership and the bidding remained lively. In addition to the normal sale the complete herd dispersal of Bud Thomas and Twin Willow Farms of Springfield, Mo., was held. Four of the top five selling entries were included in this dispersal.
            The top five horses averaged $14,040. The nine-year-old black stallion, Skyliner, topped the sale from the Bud Thomas dispersal. This talented stallion also had several top colts in the sale. He is by Skywatch out of Count’s Smooth Sailin, the grand-dam of JFK and Jackie O. Skyliner was purchased by Jennifer Davis.
            The reserve spot went to the four-year-old black gelding, Gunboat. Gunboat is sired by Generator’s Showboat out of The Tarnished Angel. Gunboat has won blues throughout Middle Tennessee. He was purchased by Greg Cass. Sonny Holt is the receiving trainer.
            Travolta was the third highest seller, also from the Thomas dispersal. This two-year-old stallion by Skyliner is out of Pushover’s Cutie, a full-sister to Say My Name. Travolta sold for $15,500.
            World Grand Champion Pride’s Winning Edge was the fourth highest selling entry. This 21-year-old breeding stallion was purchased by Chris Hazelwood for $7,000. He is by Pride’s Genius out of My Faith. This three-time world champion has sired several world champions in all three divisions. This was an emotional time for Thomas as he was very attached to the beautiful chestnut stallion.
The fifth place horse and top selling broodmare was Hard To Come By Cash. This mare by Coin’s Hard Cash out of Delight’s Miss Honey is safe in foal to Jose’ Jose’ and was consigned by Sand Creek Farm. Richard Greer and Tommy McGee purchased this seven-year-old chestnut mare.
            The next Sand Creek Sale will be the Spring Jubilee Sale to be held on Friday, May 25, and Saturday, May 26, during the Spring Fun Show. The sale will have broodmares, pleasure and show horses for those wishing to purchase horses.
