It was standing room only today at the Waggoner Ranch Complete Dispersal at DLR Stallion Station in Weatherfod, TX.
Complete results are not yet available, but rusty math gave me a ballpark average of nearly $20,000 on 220 head.
The high seller, at $280,000, was Aristo Katz. Weatherford auto dealership owner Jerry Durant purchased the 10-year-old Smart Aristocrat daughter, who is the dam of open limited age event champion Pretty Katz $248,823.
Glade Knight, owner of Slate River Ranch in Weatherford, paid $150,000 for Katz Have More Fun. The 3-year-old Dual Pep filly, out of Aristo Katz, is paid to date in the NCHA Futurity and in training with Clint Allen.
Knight also purchased 3-year-old Big Cat In Town for $90,000. The High Brow Cat son, also paid into the NCHA Futurity, is in training with former Futurity champion Wesley Galyean.
Alvin Fults, who owns 2009 NCHA Horse of the Year Metallic Cat, paid $108,000 for Purdy Aristocrat. The 14-year-old daughter of Smart Aristocrat is the dam of earners of $357,677 and sold with three embryos – one each from Cat T Masterson, Pretty Boy Cat, and Cats Illusion.
The 12-year-old sire Cats Red Feather, by High Brow Cat out of Smart Misty Dawn, brought $120,000.
