Flashin Chamisa, a filly by 2009 AQHA champion aged stallion First Moonflash, sold for $60,000 to top the Quarter Horse portion of this year’s New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs on Friday.
Gary Thompson signed the ticket for Flashin Chamisa, who was consigned by Double LL Farms, agent. The filly is a daughter of Chicks Chamisa, a winning 16-year-old mare by Chicks A Blazin. Flashin Chamisa is a half sister to three stakes winners -- multiple graded stakes winners Sixy Chamisa and Rime Has A Chick, and graded stakes winner Me Chickie.
The second-highest seller, Perrys First Flash, was acquired for $57,000 by McGehee Horse & Cattle Co.

His third dam, the Jet Deck mare Juno Reward, produced 1980 AQHA champion aged mare Lady Juno.
Flash That Money, a sorrel son of First Moonflash consigned by Double LL Farms, agent, sold for $55,000 to Fredda Draper of Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico.
