Walton Production Sale

October 22nd, 2006

Alice Walton, who has sold her ranch in Mineral Wells, Texas and begun construction on a new facility in Weatherford, is reducing her herd of cutting horses and selling 23 of them in a special “Production Sale” during the National Cutting Horse Association Futurity Sales. The Walton consignments, featuring All Boon, the first filly out of NCHA Horse of the Year Boon San Kitty and a fourth generation Walton-bred, will sell on Wednesday afternoon, December 13, immediately following the NCHA Select Seasoned Cutting Horse Sale.

“As you know, it takes careful planning and a good deal of time to make a new cutting horse facility work right,” said Walton, the daughter of Wal-Mart founder, Sam Walton. “In order to do this correctly, I am selling a select few of my best broodmares and most of my young prospects in the Western Bloodstock Futurity Sale.”

In addition to All Boon, a red roan weanling filly, Walton’s consignment includes 7-year-old Instant Sally, a half-sister to Boon San Kitty. Boon San Sally, the dam of Boon San Kitty and Instant Sally, died this past spring; her offspring have earned more than $1 million.

Several high profile money earners currently being shown under Eddie Flynn, who left Walton Ranch’s employ this year to open his own training operation, will also sell. Among them is 5-year-old Mary Has Freckles, a Freckles Playboy daughter and the earner of more than $53,000. Her dam, Little Proud Mary, by Smart Little Lena, will also go under the hammer, as will three half-siblings out of Little Proud Mary.
