Across-the-board increases were recorded during the three-day Heritage Place Winter Mixed Sale, which ended Saturday in Oklahoma City.

The Heritage Place Sale Co. reported that 694 of the 790 horses catalogued sold for a gross of $14,768,300, an increase of 50 percent over the $9,822,100 grossed during last year's two-day sale, when 535 horses were sold. This year's average-per-head price of $21,280 marked a 16-percent increase over the 2021 average of $18,359.

"Eighty-eight percent of the horses offered were sold, and we had a great crowd on hand for the sale," said Heritage Place Sale Co. general manager Spence Kidney. "This (sale) started off strong and stayed solid for three days."

Spit Curl Diva (Hip No. 701), a 16-year-old daughter of Spit Curl Jess and the sport's champion aged mare in 2010, sold for $290,000 to top the sale. Rancho La Cobra signed the ticket for the mare, who was consigned by Lazy E Ranch as agent for Reliance Ranches LLC.
