The 19th annual CWHBA Fall Classic warmblood horse sale was held Sept 28-29, 2013 in Olds, Alberta. This sale, sponsored by the3-Bars Winner - Bachelor low res Alberta Chapter of the Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Association, was run with its usual high quality of presentation and organization. Sale Chair Jennette Coote said, “The quality and pedigree of horses offered, and the training and presentation reached by consignors, was the best ever.”

High selling horse at $25,750 was Salbatora, a 3-year-old Canadian Warmblood (CW) gelding bred and consigned by Sandra Erickson, presented by Trish Tweddell. By Sandakan x Rotspon x Londonderry, this 4th generation CW gelding showed excellent gaits and a mature presence in the sale ring that made judge Connie Dorsch comment, “I can’t think of a dressage judge that wouldn’t like that coming into their ring”. Receiving the Victory Tack Shop cooler for high selling performance horse was repeat buyer R.G. Williams from Navan, Ontario, once again proving his good eye for potential stars.  

The 2-year-old prices were grouped quite tightly this year with two 2-year-olds receiving the high price of $8,000. Quest, a licensed CW stallion by Quite Easy x Beach Boy x Arkansas, bred and consigned by Touchstone Farm, was purchased by Klondike Victory Farm. Santino SR, a CW gelding by Sandakan x Whistler x Devon (Tb), bred and consigned by Susanne Rauhut, sold to Don Halladay of Rocky Mountain House and received the Paula Leweke high selling 2-year-old cooler.

The broodmare/foal/yearling section had very interesting activity, with little attention on the broodmares but several high prices onHigh Selling Performance Horse - Salbatora low res yearlings with good pedigrees. The high seller of this section, receiving the cooler sponsored by Sparks Innovations at the price of $15,250, was Barcelona, bred and consigned by Marcy Coelho. This 2-month-old exquisite filly by Bordeaux x Sandro Hit x Fernando was purchased by Red Deer breeder/rider Kelleigh Kulcsar. She commented, “We have tried to get a foal from Bordeaux for two years and are very excited about the potential of Barcelona.”
