Landmark Classic Campdraft sale grosses $2.9m

The line-up for Landmark's February Classic Campdraft sale included some of the best performance horse genetics available from the Australian Quarter Horse Association and Australian Stock Horse Society stud books. The sale grossed $2.9 million during the two selling days at the Equine Centre in Tamworth, New South Wales and the top price paid was $46,000 for a seven-year-old mare.


Vendors were able to pre-work their sale entries, enabling buyers to view the line-up in action before bidding began in earnest.


Overall, 320 horses were sold at an average price of $9,074:
126 geldings sold at an average price of $6,421, with a top price of $26,000
174 mares were sold at an average price of $10,799
20 colts were sold at an average of $10,795, with the top price of $21,000.


The Landmark Classic Campdraft competition and the Priefert Open were held in conjunction with the sale. Terry Hall won the Classic Campdraft on Hazelwood Conair, taking home $30,000 in prize money and the Landmark Classic Brady trophy saddle. Terry purchased Hazelwood Conair at last year's Classic sale for $4,500.


Next year's Landmark Classic Campdraft sale will be held during February at the Tamworth Equine Centre.
