It was cold outside but the action was hot inside The Exclusive Opportunity Sale with an unofficial average of $6,046. Sale hosts Aaron Eaton and Jamie Black along with co-managers Md-Hillbrook had an outstanding line-up of high-type and deep pedigreed animals from across the United States and Canada.
Topping the sale at $20,500 was Trent Valley Sid Aly. The Junior 3, fresh in March, was consigned by Thomas, Heath & Cummings of Ohio, she was purchased by Casey, Chloe and Chase Vander Eyk of Tipton, California. Aly is a Sid daughter of a VG-85 Goldwyn daughter of the 95-2E Kingsway Sanchez Arangatang, the All-Canadian honoree backed by seven more generations of Excellent or Very Good dams.
Second high-seller at $20,000 was a Senior 3-Year-Old Dempsy daughter, Teebrook Dempsey Rebecca, scored VG-88 in Canada. Consigned by Aaron Eaton and was purchased by Dalton Furis of Ontario. Rebecca sold just fresh six weeks and will certainly be one to shine on the tanbark.
Rounding out the top sellers at $19,00 was Petitclerc Solomon Tropic, consigned by Ferme Jean-Paul Peticerc & Fils Inc. of Quebec and purchased by Noah Bilz of Wisconsin. Tropic is a fancy, dairy September 2017 Solomon daughter out of a VG-89 Windbrook from the award-winning Pineland Goldwyn Tidbit-ET EX-91 multiple All-American and All-Canadian family.
