Special Consignments, Bonus Incentives Offered at Robertson Sale

Royal Crest Farms, Fond Du Lac, Wis., has chosen Robertson Equine Sales (RES) to disburse 10 American Saddlebreds, including several outstanding prospects, and has also listed several beautiful pieces of tack and equipment, according to RES President Jimmy Robertson. Among the Royal Crest items are a fine harness buggy and a pleasure driving cart, both with natural wood finishes and appointments in excellent condition.

Also represented in the Spring Sale are several broodmares from some of the best American Saddlebred breeding farms in the country. Known for their carefully planned contributions to these farms’ breeding programs, the mares offer some of the most desirable bloodlines available. “It’s an opportunity to invest in breeding stock that’s unusual to find at public auction,” said Robertson.

“We’re very pleased with the quality and diversity of our Spring Sale,” Robertson continued. “The number of consignments is as expected, and we continue to be impressed with the offerings of proven show ring winners that are presented in our sales lane.”

A special incentive program offers bonus prize money to the purchaser of an RES Autumn 2012 or Spring 2013 horse who is the first to win at the Germantown Charity Horse Show or Alabama Charity Championship Horse Show, both to be held in 2013. “We feel it’s important to support existing horse shows,” Robertson pointed out. “This new bonus prize program puts an immediate incentive in front of purchasers, so that they’ll take their new mounts to these horse shows. In 2014, we’ll select other horse shows to showcase.”

Scheduled to be held at the Shelby County Fairgrounds, Shelbyville, Ky., on Monday, April 8, the RES Spring Sale will include catering by Cattleman’s Roadhouse.
