Top prices at Regancrest
At an average price of $12,207 (108 lots), the 7th edition of the Regancrest Command Performance Sale has been the highlight among last week’s auctions. And the top price was not half bad, too. Even twice, a lot was knocked down at $60,000. At first, Jeff Butler paid that price for Regelcreek Shmrock Amber (2562 gTPI) from the Chief Adeen family, and shortly afterwards a 1st choice from the Cosmopolitan family caught up: Mark Kerndt purchased a Supersire daughter out of Larcrest Cale, who in turn is a high Observer daughter out of Crimson. At the third-highest price, attractive Sandy-Valley Devrie (2429 gTPI) changed ownership. Devrie is sired by Shamrock and out of Regan-ALH Divina, the Boliver sister to well-known Goldwyn sons Danillo and Goldday from the Raven family. At $42,000, she went to Jeff Simpson. A Denim granddaughter to Sully Shottle Max, Sully Hart Denim (2431 gTPI) fetched the fourth-highest price ($40,000) paid by Daisy Farms. (source:holsteininternational.com)
