Robertson Equine Sale to Include Orr Reduction Sale

The storied breeding and show farm headed by industry icon James W. Orr has chosen Robertson Equine Sales for a scheduled stock reduction, according to Jimmy and Helen Robertson. “Jim and his daughter Deborah’s impressive equine breeding operation has produced some of the most famous names in recent Saddlebred history,” said Jimmy Robertson, president of Robertson Equine Sales. “We again saw horses bred by the Orrs take victory passes and top ribbons at this year’s World’s Championship Horse Show." Jim Orr added, “This is by no means a dispersal. We are more excited about our breeding program than ever, especially with such recent successes such as home-bred Seven Spanish Angels earning the Three Gaited Park World's Champion of Champions win. However, in an effort to make our numbers more manageable, we are offering some terrific animals for public auction."

Robertson said the Orr sale will feature many wonderfully bred horses, most tracing to Wrapped In Rainbows' foundation and world’s champion-sire CHHeir To Champagne. Among the consignments are broodmares, show prospects, and finished show horses. The Orr family also plans to utilize the UPHA Classic Incentive sale in Kansas City during the UPHA American Royal National Championship for the sale of yearlings and two-year-olds, according to Robertson.
