Fall Classic Sale A Smashing Success

25th Annual Fall Classic Sale a Smashing Success

The 25th anniversary of the Canadian Warmblood Horse Association’s Fall Classic Sale was a great success. The arena was standing room only as the sale got underway at 6 pm on Saturday, October 5. The decorations were outstanding, the food and wine offered were superior, and the horses set a new standard in quality and pedigree. Of the 40 horses offered, 31 sold, with six going to out-of-province homes and one traveling to the US. The gross sales of $377,250 Cdn, is an increase from 2018 of $90,000 and the highest gross since 2007. There was also a $1,500 increase from the 2018 average sale price to $12,169 ($9,360 US).

The sale hit the ground running when Lot 0, the cover and poster art “Baby Steps”, a beautiful chalk pastel created by Rebecca Shuttleworth of Airdrie, Alberta, was hotly contested and sold for the sale-record price of $3,000 to Rosemary Church.

The energy remained high as the horses were brought through the sale ring. The cooler for the high-selling young prospect, sponsored by Sparks Innovations, went to O’Star de Chacoon (Chacoon Blue x Zeno H2), bred and consigned by Klondike Victory Farm. This excellent weanling filly sold to Rocky Mountain Show Jumping of Calgary, Alberta for $19,000 ($14,615 US).
