Records written and rewritten for mares at the 2021 Dalby Australian Stock Horse Sale.

Records were rewritten not once, but twice, at the 47th annual Dalby Australian Stock Horse sale as the first stage of the selling got underway on Saturday afternoon at the Dalby Showgrounds.

New records for mares were set when two lots sold for $110,000 and $114,000.

Topping the sale at $114,000 was the 11-year-old brown/black mare, Maula Tilly Devine, a daughter of Hazelwood Conman from Wildrift Ambition, offered by Debbie Gesler, Pittsworth, Qld, and bought by Evan and Kim Acton, Millungerera, Julia Creek, Qld.

Auctioneer, Paton Fitzsimmons, opened the bidding at $20,000 and jumped up in increments of $10,000, before dropping back to $5000, then finally, rises of $2000 around the ring, before the new record was written.

The Actons were keen to secure the heritage-bred mare being by impact sire Conman, while also picking up Luckenough Destiny and Glen Lee Rivoli lines on the dam's side.

"It was an opportunity to purchase a quality novice mare with breeding ability," Mr Acton said.

"We will campaign her and head down to Warwick Gold Cup with her next year, where I will campaign her, while Kim will nominate her for the Ladies Draft."

Second-top priced mare was Royalle Cygnificant offered by Ginni Woodall and Hugh Simpson of St George, who sold for $110,000.

The eight-year-old bay mare was bought by Maree Duncombe and Jye Banks of Connondale, Qld.

Mr Bank said Cygnificant was the type of horse his partner Maree liked, plus she was ready to be campaigned and then a great breeding proposition at the end of her career.

Royalle Cygnificant was bred by Amanda McLennan Dehnert and husband Paul Dehnert and they sold her as a yearling.
