Great results for Landmark at Paradise Lagoons

Great results were witnessed last week at the inaugural Landmark Paradise Lagoons Performance Horse Sale which attracted over 400 people and grossed $315,500.

Held just outside Rockhampton at the Acton’s Paradise Lagoons horse sports complex, on offer was a line up of 39 ridden horses from both the Australian Quarter Horse and Australian Stock Horse stud books including 24 mares, 13 geldings and 2 stallions.

Landmark Stud Stock Officer and sale auctioneer, Colby Ede who has been a driving force behind the event, was delighted with the results.

“The quality of horses was excellent which drew a great crowd from Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, Mr Ede said.

“It was terrific to have such a good turnout and support for our first sale.”

Mr Ede said the other drawcard was the automatic eligibility for all horses purchased in the sale to compete for an extra $14,000 in prize money in the 2010 Paradise Lagoons Campdraft.

The overall clearance was 30 from a total of 39 head for an average price of $10,500. The standout result was the sale of two mares both reaching the top price of $30,000. Cameron and Sarah Parker’s four year old quarter horse was purchased by Michael and Libby Ingram of “Skye”, Alpha. Shortly afterwards, William and Tracey Tapp’s six year old stock horse went to Terry Ryan from Chinchilla.

The top price gelding was a six year old purchased for $13,000 by Tom Acton from Croydon Station, Marlborough from vendors JJ and JA Knight, Woolomin New South Wales.

The major buyers on the day were Scott and Geoff Angel from Glengarry Brahman Stud taking home with them three horses for the grand sum of $44,500 averaging $14,833.

“Landmark would like to thank all vendors and buyers with particular thanks to the Acton family and hope next year’s sale can be as successful as this,” Mr Ede said.
