Futurity Sales in Ft Worth
This past week I was in Ft Worth photographing the Western Bloodstock Select Sales. This photo above is a composite of a series of photos taken during the Invitational Yearling Sales. In this sale a selection of top yearling colts and fillies are offered for sale. This is the 2nd year of this sale which is televised live on RFD-TV. This particular image shows Curlys Cowgirl being auctioned for $500,000.
The following Saturday before the Select 2yo sale, A parade of the top sires was held in the Watt Arena, with Jim Ware of Western Bloodstock Inc, commenting on each stallion and their merits and records. Peptoboonsmal is shown here by Carol Rose. Photos of these leading sires can be seen in this Gallery.
