Ware says the progressively strong averages the last few years have been reflective of the nation’s positive economy and escalating demand for performance horses. Since Triangle’s 2015 Winter Sale, which reached an overall average of $6,500, the Top 100 Sales average has increased drastically, reaching $19,000 for Winter Sale 2020.
Another top sale was Hip No. 541, Metallic Style (Metallic Cat X Docs Stylish Legacy by Docs Stylish Oak), purchased for $42,000 by Jose Ortega, Burbank, Illinois, and sold by Rob and Sue Stevenson of Mineola, Iowa. The 2014 red roan stallion was the leading sale among cutting/cow horse bred consignments, averaging $15,050 for National Cutting Horse Association money earners and $10,050 for all categories.
In the end, the gavel closed on a $115,000 sale after tug-of-war bidding, with “Skittles” ultimately going to the Shane Barrington family of Weatherford, Texas. The sale made “Skittles” the sale topper and a national record sale for a family gelding.
The second-high sale was achieved by a reining gelding, Hip No. 319, Gunners Top Jessie (Gunners Peppy Oak X Topsail Jessie Girl by Top Cruise) for $75,000. The gray 2012 gelding was also consigned by Mozaun and Sarah McKibben and purchased by Autry Morlan, Bloomfield, Missouri. Gunners Top Jessie led sales for reining-bred horses, which was the highest averaging discipline of the sale at $18,500 per head for National Reining Horse Association money earners and $8,800 for all categories of reiners including mares and prospects.
The sale also featured exceptionally strong geldings age 3 years and older, which averaged $18,000 on the top 50 head sold, while all 115 in this category averaged $11,500. The strong top sales created a Top 10 average of $46,000 and helped advance 136 horses into Triangle’s Top $10,000 Club—the largest number from any one sale since the designation was first implemented in 2015.
The three-day sale event kicked off Thursday evening, Jan. 23 with a newly introduced session named the Performance Triangle. This session featured cutting, reining and cow horse consignments that were black-type 2018 prospects and breeding stock, which averaged $9,250. The sale session included a dinner hosted by Oklahoma State Fair Park and the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitor’s Bureau as a welcome to the new location for guests that included buyers attending from three foreign countries and 33 states in the US.
There was an obvious buzz of excitement amid a standing room only crowd for the annual Triangle Winter Sale, held Jan. 23-25 in Oklahoma City’s State Fair Park. The crisp air and optimal timing for both buyers and sellers has historically made the sale, dubbed the “January Sale,” among the most anticipated horse sale events in the nation.
“It’s a reflection of the overall economy,” Ware says. “The horse market has experienced ups and downs throughout my lifetime for different reasons, but right now we’re experiencing a good, good market. All kinds of horses are in demand and bringing top money.”
Flag Ranch, Torrington, Wyoming, was a featured consignor, dispersing 72 horses, and gleaning two of the top sales. Hip No. 386, First Prize Diver (PYC Paint Your Wagon X First Prize Pearl by Mr Jess Perry) sold for $41,000 as a multi-disciplined roping/barrel racing competitor. The 2012 gelding was purchased by Richard Montera, Greeley, Colorado, while Red White N Smooth (Smooth As A Cat x Star Fillaree by Gray’s Starlight) followed closely as Hip No. 398 for $40,500. Flag Ranch sold the 2012 stallion as a competitive roping horse to Robert Witte, Overbrook, Okla.
