Jesse James Jr Colt Tops New Mexico-Bred Quarter Horse Yearling Sale
RSS Feeds Saturday, August 18, 2012
Veramonte, a colt by the Mr Jess Perry stallion Jesse James Jr, topped Friday's New Mexico-Bred Quarter Horse Yearling Sale at the Ruidoso Downs Horse Sale Pavilion.

Bob and Delores Gerhardt paid $92,000 for Veramonte, who was consigned to the sale by Mac and Janis Spencer Murray's MJ Farms. The sorrel colt is a half brother to Wild Six, the winner of the 2007 Rainbow (G1) and West Texas (G1) futurities and a finalist in that season's Grade 1, $1.9-million All American Futurity.

Veramonte's second dam, the Dash Ta Fame mare Famous Chapelle, won the 1997 Utah Classic Futurity (RG1) and produced graded stakes winner Arbor Mist.

Heza Fast Hitter, a colt by the TR Dasher stallion Hard Hitting consigned by Terry and Nan Lane's TNL Farm Inc., was acquired for $45,000 by Stan Watkins. Heza Fast Hitter's dam, the Heza Fast Man mare Prissy Sin, is a half sister to 2007 AQHA champion aged mare Blazin Fire.

A total of 170 New Mexico-bred Quarter Horse yearlings were sold for $1,567,300. The average of $9,219 represented a 2-percent decrease from the 2011 average of $9,402. However, the median increased 7 percent to $5,350.

The New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale continues Saturday. The sale will start after the end of the live racing program at Ruidoso Downs Racetrack.

Complete coverage of the sales will be featured in the October issue of the New Mexico Horse Breeder magazine. Click here for complete results of the Quarter Horse sale.
