Wood She B Magic lived up to the question posed by her name on Monday, December 7, in Fort Worth, when she sold for $1,050,000 in Session I of the NCHA Futurity 2-Year-Old Sale.
Consigned by Wes and Lindy Ashlock, Abilene, Tex., and trained by Wes, Wood She B Magic, by Woody Be Tuff, was purchased by Billy Wolf, Whitesboro, Tex., owner of 2017 NCHA Futurity Open champion Dual Reyish LTE $427,941.
Wood She B Magic’s price broke an all-time record for a cutting horse sold at public auction. The previous record was set nearly 20 years ago, when 1996 NCHA Open Horse of the Year Meradas Little Sue sold for $875,000, in the NCHA Futurity Sale.
Bred by Waco Bend Ranch, Graham, Tex., Wood She B Magic is out of Metallic Cat daughter Magic Metallic LTE $164,052, a full sister to 2017 NCHA Open Horse of the Year Metallic Rebel LTE $438,315, and one of 18 earners of $1,674,584 out of Sweet Abra LTE $117,725, by Abrakadabracre.
Billy Wolf is also owner of Fancy Deville, the high-scoring go-round contender coming into the 2020 NCHA Futurity Open Semi-Finals. Fancy Deville, by Once In A Blu Boon, was purchased by Wolf in the 2019 NCHA Futurity 2-Year-Old Sale and is being shown by Dual Reyish’s rider, Austin Shepard.
Konna, a High Brow Cat daughter, bred by Jose Sigala, Weatherford, Tex., and consigned by Todd Nelson, Los Altos, Calif., in training with Richard Jordan, sold for $400,000, the second-highest price of a day that averaged $51,299 on 70 horses. A full sister to Sanctus LTE $137,556, winner of the NCHA Open Derby and the leading 2020 four-year-old money earner, Konna was purchased by Jim and Mary Jo Milner, Southlake, Tex.
