Mid-Atlantic Breeders’ Sale Hosts Fourth Edition

by Nancy Galusha

The Mid-Atlantic Breeders’
Sale enjoyed another successful year both in attendance and quality of the Morgans presented. Unlike last year, the weather was much improved though cold and windy, but the snow stayed away from the Harrisburg, Pa., area during the sale held on Dec. 7 and 8, 2006.


Consignors came from all over the east and as far away as Michigan to present their horses to potential buyers. The Internet bidding was available again this year and it seemed that more people were taking advantage of this technology.

Peter Fenton once again read pedigrees and was joined by auctioneer Jim Price. The addition of Jim Price this year was a good move on the part of the Mid-Atlantic auction. Price made sure all horses received adequate time in the auction ring. In addition the team of Fenton and Price made sure that things kept rolling along while adding some humor when needed.

It was evident that the sales committee consisting of David Lantz, Dan Allgyer, David Glick and Dale Stoltzfus had been hard at work this past year to make this sale better than ever and they have succeeded.

Thursday evening saw the first 40 horses come through the auction ring. Friday morning started with the popular stallion presentation. Nineteen Morgan stallions were presented to the public. Some of the stallions presented included JDS Legal Enforcer, LVM The Black Ace, JMF Artic Fox, MEM Bacardi, Whitemud Summer Stars and Rosevale Leggos.

The high selling horse sold for $19,500 and was consigned by Copper Beech LLC with Harry Sebring acting as agent. The lovely Tedwin Topic daughter, Cedar Creek Valkyrie is a full sister to Cedar Creek Pazzaz. The second highest selling horse, which sold for $15,000 was the bold moving Salisbury Special who is by Astronomicallee and out of Whispering Lexus. Nicole Panek was the successful bidder on this athletic young stallion. Kathleen Peeples acted as agent for Sunrise Stable.

All in all, the sale continues to be well supported within the Morgan community and is one to be considered to attend in 2007.
