Bank Fulo Cdees daughter tops Landmark Paradise Lagoons Performance Horse Sale

Star Park Quarter Horses, Mr. Ken Cullen of Wondai QLD sold Lot 78, an exceptional 4 year old chestnut mare known as “Cdees Mystic Spin,” to top the 2011 Landmark Paradise Lagoons Performance Sale Horse at $27,000.

Presented by Kumbia trainer, Mr. Bill Carey, “Cdees Mystic Spin” is sired by “Bank Fulo Cdees” (Imp) Q-44738, out of Buc Spinnie Q-27814, who is sired by Doc's Spinifex (Imp) Q-5015. Purchased by Waugoola Pastoral Co of Canowindra NSW.


Top selling stallion of the sale was Lot 1 “Fern Hills Bennett” he sold for $23,000. Vendor, Warren Offord was convinced to sell by his high regard for the purchasers, Craig and Belinda Ellrott of Morinish. The young couple already have a filly on the ground by the stallion and were keen to let Warren continue to use the sire in his breeding program. Belinda Ellrott commented, "Craig sent me along with a budget, but I blew that! The stallion is a nice type of horse with a lovely temperament and he's ready to go ahead in the campdrafting arena. We like the fact that Warren has given him a really good grounding."


Georgina O'Neill of 'Mt Oweenee Station', Charters Towers QLD and Simcal Partnership, 'South Telarah', Bundarra, NSW shared equal top price honours in the offering of geldings. Reaching $12,000, Georgina parted with “Seligman Jack”, a rising 7 year old palomino gelding sired by “Seligman Spin” Q-43083 and from an “Oaks Jack Hammer” Q-3090 bred mare. Jack was purchased by Ben and Hayley Hutton, “Barkly Downs,” Mt Isa QLD; the horse is destined for the campdraft arena in 2011 with Hayley in the saddle.


Equal top price gelding vendor, Simcal Partnership sold 'Kirbys Playin' for $12,000 to Simon and Amanda McCutcheon of 'Mullah Station', Trangie NSW. The grey 7 year old is out of “Kirby,” a descendent of Little Abbey – IS and sired by the well known stallion “One Moore Playboy”.


Mares were the flavour of the sale, with Chinchilla Campdrafters, Peter & Shari Knudsen, paying $25,000 for Lot 14 an Elliott’s Creek Cadet granddaughter, “Midlands Arena Tara.” “Tara” was offered up for sale by Ray Hawke of” Barton Springs”, Hall ACT.


Les and Carmen Stewart snapped up Lot 68 an outstanding 5 year old mare sired by “Almora QP Double Doc” Q-33651 for $25,000 from Hume Simpson of' 'Weonia', Bollon QLD, while Stewart Wallace sold his 10 year old drafting mare sired by “Lindsay - IS” named “Greenridge Rosette” for $20,000 to Peter Hughes, 'Tierawomba', Nebo QLD.

Sale organiser, Colby Ede of Landmark Rockhampton was pleased with the sale results and the reputation that the sale is gaining, "We had a good seasoned catalogue of horses and that reflected on the average. We're aiming our sale at the performance market, that might be campdrafting, cutting, mustering, or whatever market you want a horse for, but you're going to find a really good quality of horse on offer. It's not about quantity for us."


Landmark looks forward to strengthening the Paradise Lagoons Performance Horse Sale in 2012 and a sincere thankyou to all vendors and purchasers for their commitment and support of the equine industry.
