Superior Sales

Superior Sales, LLC. held the Fall Sale 2001 Fri., Nov. 30 and Sat., Dec. 1, 2001 at America’s Exposition Park, Lake St. Louis, Mo., with three horse sessions and a complete tack sale on the morning of the Saturday sessions.

A show-like atmosphere featured the trademark silver and red drapes highlighted with poinsettias and foliage covered with decorative white lights. Attendees entered through the facility on red carpets through the vendor area, which offered a wide variety of apparel, horse equipment, harness, buggies, stall ornaments and others. Jaguar automobiles displayed by Moore Automotive Group, St. Louis, Mo., completed the air of elegance. The amphitheater-type setting faced the white-fenced sale arena, which allowed spectators their choice of table or elevated seating.

Jimmy Price, Louisville, Ky., handled the auctioneering duties. Peter Fenton was announcer ands Tim Lockard served as sale clerk and Beth Snider managed the sale office. Other staff included Brian Chappell, Al Montgomery, Craig Lamps, Roxanne Lockard, and Scott Snider.

One highlight of the fall sale was the sharp three-gaited gelding, “Taste the Fizz,” owned by Mark and Kelly Hulse, New Bloomfield, Mo. and presented by Mark Hulse. This young gelding lit up the sales arena and kept the bidding competitive up to the very end. Hulse displayed his inimitable style and entertained the crowd as this youngster got better and better. The new owner is Scott Pizarick whose parents, Tom and Ginger Pizarick purchased this horse as Scott’s younger equitation age group entry for 2002, under the direction of Maggie Montgomery of Wild Venture Farm. An appreciative round of applause filled the arena with the announcement of “ sold, $30,000.00.”

Heartland Hackney Farm and owners Darrel and Sandy Kolkman, New London, Iowa, continue their support of each Superior Sales event with top selections from their world class breeding operation. Noted horseman, Bill Becker, Nicholasville, Ky., selected a top two year old gelding, Heartland Professor, who is a full brother to Heartland Santana, for Shadow Run. Gary Dickherber purchased the full brother to the current world grand champion Hackney Pleasure Driving Pony, Heartland Secret, by signing the ticket on Heartland Country Dream, who will now be trained by Jimmy Miller. The Kolkman consignment along with that of Mrs. John C. Pritzlaff’s Seamair Farm also included broodmares, weanlings and other youngsters.

Major reductions from Louise Dearmore, Joe and Vickie Simpson and the Gilbert Hollingsworth family presented buyers with the opportunity to purchase a wide variety of American Saddlebred youngsters and breeding stock. Golden Creek Farms, Dr.. Alan Raun, Virgil Helm, Ron Hulse, AE Nelson, and Harry Harbecker each consigned top stock that demanded good prices.

Superior Sales maintains its goals to offer horses and ponies at public auction in an atmosphere that is friendly, show-like and offering the best in comfort for buyers and sellers. Superior Sales plans to continue to reach new goals in raising the level of excellence in public horse sales with new innovations and promotion through alternative avenues.
