On September 18-19, 2021, a celebration of the great stallion Sugar Bars happened at the historic Sheridan County Fairgrounds in Sheridan,Wyoming, with a sale and show. 

To help preserve the legacy of the stallion, a group of Quarter Horse breeders comes together annually to host the Sugar Bars Legacy Horse Sale, which is only open to horses that carry the famous stallion’s blood. The weekend opens with a futurity show for yearlings, 2- and 3-year-old graduates of past sales. 

Sunday started with a saddle horse preview, colt preview, and then the 19th annual sale. 

One of the highlights of the sale is the “wild card” purchase, which opens the sale and allows the high bidder select their choice from all the weanlings in the sale.

The sale’s top horse was Lot 63, DDD Tucks Trigger, a 2017 red dun gelding sired by JA Tuckerwood Frost and out of the Dakota Drift mare DDD Hot Dakota Baby.

The sale’s wild card was also the top selling weanling at $6,250, Lot 34, HR Nu Shine Fanzee, a palomino filly sired by Hes Busy Shinin and out of the Cook N Oak mare Cookin Miss Elli from Haight Ranch, sold to Lance and Becky Bateman, Etna, Wyoming.

There were 24 weanling colts sold for an average of $2,341. A total of 17 weanling fillies sold for an average of $2,632. There were eight yearlings sold for an average of $3,188. A total of 20 saddle horses sold for an average of $10,315. There were four broodmares sold for an average of $2,312.
