A Merry Prankster
The Wanamaker’s February Sale closed on Thursday, Feb. 24, with 15 offerings changing hands for a gross amount of $93,500.
Leading the market was A Merry Prankster, a 4-year-old broodmare/racing prospect consigned by KatieRich Farms. By Distorted Humor and a half-sister to graded stakes winner Strike Power, A Merry Prankster sold for $50,000 to Nathan McCauley’s River Oak Farm. According to McCauley, she will be bred to Munnings.
“This was my first time using Wanamaker’s. I found it extremely easy to sign-up, took just a couple minutes, and the online platform was very simple and easy to navigate,” McCauley said. “In a business that overcomplicates so many things, hats off to Wanamaker’s for designing a platform so easy to use. I’ll definitely be bidding on their next quality offering that fits our program.”
Other notable horses sold included a yearling colt by Good Samaritan who hammered for $10,000, as well Affeziamente, a 7-year-old broodmare in-foal to Madefromlucky who sold for $4,500.
Entries for the next Wanamaker’s sale close on March 15, the catalog will be released on March 16, and the horses will sell on March 24.
