Results & Wrap Up
If there is one event that everyone is adding to their bucket list, it surely must be the World Championship Gold Buckle Campdraft weekend at Willinga Park. Between the world class facilities, stunning location and 3 days of top competition between some of Australia’s best combinations, it was a true honour to once again present the Breed For The Future Sale of elite performance horse fillies there in 2019.
This year’s Breed For The Future Sale was another success, with 13 lots grossing $204,500 for an average of $15,730. There was a huge crowd of keen spectators and bidders in a setting which was second to none for the impressive line of yearling fillies, with a strong sale catalogue boasting highly sought after and rarely offered female genetics.
Top priced offering was Lot 14 “Conserene” on account of Mark & Janelle Simshauser of Kempsey Quarter Horses. The stunning black filly by Hazelwood Conman and out of Novice mare Sereness (Acres Destiny x Oaks Serene) was beautifully presented by LWS Performance Horses and was well bought after some competitive bidding for $40,000, by Willinga Park. A top class filly, we are sure Terry will enjoy her!
Other highlights included the sale of Lot 10 “G IMA Spicy Minx”, offered by Joel & Julie Duff, JND Ventures Pty Ltd. The striking bay Sophisticated Catt filly out of NCHA Derby Res. Champion and Open Campdraft winner G I Jane, sold for $29,000. We also saw Lot 15, on account of Tom Williamson, “Baby Boon” - a lovely chestnut filly by Boon Too Suen and the last filly foal out of Oaks Chime, who was 2nd in the Warwick Gold Cup - sell for $25,000. Both fillies going home with happy buyer Michael Hawke of Mikes Meats Pty Ltd. We look forward to seeing them return to compete for Mike at the Classic in a few years!
Congratulations to all the vendors and successful buyers. Thank you to Terry Snow for hosting us again at his magnificent facility - thanks to his abiding passion for the sport, Campdrafting has been lifted even further onto the world stage. The final of the Gold Buckle Campdraft was this year broadcast live on national television – an Australian first and surely not the last! Exciting times for the sport, what a privilege to be invited to sell horses at Willinga Park. It is an event not to be missed and we look forward to 2020 already.
