Solid Results for NCHA Summer Spectacular Sale

The 2014 NCHA Summer Spectacular Sale, produced by Western Bloodstock Ltd., preceded the NCHA Derby Finals on August 2, at Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, and topped the 2013 NCHA Summer Spectacular Sale with 87% completed sales, including a strong $33,300 average for the top five high sellers.

“We had the largest crowd ever at this Summer Spectacular Sale and a very strong market with 87 percent completed sales,” said Jeremy Barwick of Western Bloodstock Ltd. “Show horses were in demand, as well as prospects in training. But all ages sold well, which indicates an even stronger market in the near future.

“It seems like people are willing to sell and there are definitely buyers ready to buy,” Barwick added. “I was also pleased with the number of young stallions represented by the sale yearlings, which sold very well.

“Also, we definitely owe a debt of gratitude to Hard Eight BBQ, which catered a great lunch for a crowd of 600 people during the sale.”

Western Bloodstock expands venue

In a move to broaden the market and offer premium auctions at moderate prices for all classes of performance horses, Western Bloodstock Ltd. has expanded its roster to include three new sales, in addition to their premier venues at the NCHA Futurity, NCHA Super Stakes, and NCHA Summer Spectacular Sales in Fort Worth.

The new sales are the Western Fall Roundup, to be held this year on Saturday, September 6, at the Four States Fairgrounds in Texarkana, Ark.; the Big Bash on the Brazos, Tuesday, September 23, at Silverado Arena, Weatherford, Tex.; and the Western Winter Roundup, Saturday, January 10, 2015, at the Oklahoma State Fair Park, Oklahoma City, Okla.

“My intention when we bought Western Bloodstock was to expand our schedule,” said Jeremy Barwick, who along with his wife, Candace, purchased the cutting industry’s preeminent sale company last summer from co-founders Ben Emison and Milt Bradford.

“I felt we needed options to meet the needs of everyone and not just the owners who have cutting horses of the caliber that sell well in Fort Worth. I want to have a market for everyone, with a roster of sales that can accommodate everything from the $2,000 horse to the $500,000 horse.”

The Fall Roundup Sale and the Winter Roundup Sale will include all ages, types, and breeds of Western performance horses, including ranch horses, roping horses, barrel horses, cutters, team penners, reiners, working cowhorses, yearlings, and broodmares. The consignment fee for each sale will be $250, with no pass out fee.

When it comes to selling horses, nothing else compares!
