A classy filly called Sheady Jubilation - LH brought cause for celebration at the Fountain of Youth sale at Tamworth this afternoon.
Offered by Brian and Kayleen Sutton, Sheady stud, Biggenden, Queensland, the Royal Heartthrob daughter was knocked down for the sale-topping bid of $13,000, the sale being held as part of the Australian Stock Horse National Show and Sale.
Mr Sutton said the filly's dam, Lazy D Rocks Jubilation, was the first winner of the Toowoomba Supreme Sale two-year-old challenge, among a string of other wins at shows in NSW and Queensland.
A full sister of Jubilation, Sheady Jubilee - LH, had also been the supreme led exhibit at the Queensland ASH State Show and sold at last year's Fountain of Youth Sale for $8000.
The Suttons prepared four yearlings for the sale, one of which was for a client and all by their stallion, Heartthrob, and all four sold to average $8625.
Second top was another filly, Adios Pearl, at $12,000, offered by Tim and Amanda Hollis, Adios Stock Horses, Piallaway near Gunnedah.
The filly's sire was the open campdrafter Destination Unknown and was bred from the mare Annibrook Jamaica, an Adios Reflect daughter.
All up, the sale grossed $232,650 to average $4739 for 47 lots sold for a 65 per cent clearance.
The selling agent was Landmark.
