Sale wrap up courtesy of the Australian Stock Horse Society.
The Fountain of Youth Sale held on Saturday, 2nd March, saw 71 Australian Stock Horse yearlings and 2-year-olds offered for sale with 51 sold with a gross of $230,500 and an overall average of $4,519. Topping the sale was a stunning black yearling filly, Lot 73 SHEADY JUBILATION that sold for $13,000 on account of Brian and Kayleen Sutton from Lakeside QLD. This filly is by ROYALLE HEART THROB from LAZY D ROCKS JUBILATION and was bought by Robert and Kate Prichard.
The highest priced colt was Lot 8 BARTTRACE DROVER - HSH (HAZELWOOD CONMAN - HSH/ CLONMEL GYPSY - HSH) on behalf of Bartrace Farm at Mirboo, VIC and sold to A & M Boyd for $10,000. The top-priced gelding was Lot 12 BULLSEYE CEASAR – HSH by GLEN LEE RIVOLI TEAK - HSH from MAVERICK MELODY - HSH on account of Bullseye Stock Horses, Dunedoo, NSW who sold for $7,000 to Richard & Kerry Yarrow. All horses purchased are eligible for the Australian Stock Horse and Landmark incentives and exclusive classes at the 2020 ASHS Nationals.
Demonstrating the benefits of the Sale incentives, previous Fountain of Youth Sale Horse PLAYMORE IN FLIGHT (WILLDRAFT JET/ ROSEBROOK MAORI LASS), owned by MD & JM Field and ridden by Mark Field collected the incentive prize money of $4,000 as the Highest Scoring Fountain of Youth Horse in the Baxter Boots & Shoes National Futurity. The vendor and breeder of this mare Playmore Stock Horses, also received $1,500 in prize money as part of the sale incentives. This lovely 3yo mare is proving to be a smart investment after placing 6th overall in the National Futurity including a 5th place in the Working Section. This brings her earnings at this event to $4,965. PLAYMORE IN FLIGHT was sold for $5,000 at the 2017 Fountain of Youth Sale and has almost re-cooped on the purchaser's original outlay at this event alone. This outcome validates the high calibre of horses available each year at this prestigious sale.
Following the Sale, a fundraising auction was held to support Dolly's Dream with special guest Kate Everett, National Recipient of the 2019 Australia Day "Local Hero Award". Kate travelled from the Northern Territory to share the tragic story of her daughter Amy "Dolly" Everett, who was the victim of bullying and ended her young life at just 14 years of age. Dolly's Dream has been established by her family and friends in her memory. The Auction was well supported by Members of ASHS and businesses with over 50 donated items going under the hammer. Along with gold coin donations on the day the fundraising auction generated in excess of $20,000.
