Return to the Remuda Sale Sets New All-Time Record, Breaks $3 Million Dollar Mark

The Annual Return to the Remuda sale was hosted at the Four Sixes Ranch in Guthrie, Texas on Oct. 2, where officials say 168 horses were sold to the public for the highest gross in the history of the sale.

Sale organizers say the event experienced the largest crowd ever on hand to preview and purchase from the legendary ranches of Beggs Cattle Company, Four Sixes Ranch, Tongue River Ranch, Pitchfork Land and Cattle Company, King Ranch, and Wagonhound Land & Livestock.

“I thought last year’s sale would be hard to beat, but this sale surpassed all of our expectations! Our buyers came from all over the country, California to Florida and 21 states in-between,” Horse Division Manager and resident veterinarian Dr. Glenn Blodgett said in a statement from the Four Sixes. 

The sale gross exceeded $3 million with an overall average of more than $18,000, a 32% increase over 2020.

“The 2-year-old geldings and yearlings stayed consistent with last year’s sale, and we saw a considerable increase with aged geldings, weanlings, and older filles,” Blodgett said. “The biggest gains were with the broodmares and stallion prospects, having above average offerings in those categories.”

The highest-selling horse of the day, Sixes Smart Cat, was a gelding by EquiStat Elite $14 Million Sire WR This Cats Smart who earned a high bid of $250,000. The buyers were Bosque Ranch/Taylor & Nicole Sheridan.
