Non-Pro Futurity Champion Tops Marketplace At Ardmore

A National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) Futurity Non-Pro Champion topped the Marketplace at Ardmore New Year’s Day Sale.  

Sale officials say the online event averaged $13,023 with 85 percent sold. They said the event, their fourth online event since July, was the best yet.

“Traditionally, New Year’s Day has always been a good day to hold a horse sale, and this year proved to be right on point,” said Susie Reed, sale manager for the Marketplace at Ardmore Online Sales.” We had a lot of new buyers register from all across the country with the result – a great sale average and the highest percentage sold we’ve ever had for an online sale.”
