Dalby Stock Horse Sale results 2018

By Lyndsey Douglas

Ray White Equine hosted the 44th annual Dalby Australian Stock Horse Sale, the largest sale of its kind in the nation, with bidders registered from as far afield as New York, Victoria, Northern Territory, Western Australia, New South Wales and across Queensland competing for 228 lots.

Ray White Dalby’s Roger Lyne said the quality of horses on offer this year was impressive given the challenge of extended dry conditions affecting many vendors.

The top sale was a $42,000 purchase of Narrego Miss Spinductor (Lot 187) to RM and CE Daly of Roma, Queensland. Mrs BG Eykamp of Quirindi New South Wales was the vendor of the seven-year-old mare, sired by Conductor and out of Sunland Opal.

“As well as the $42,000 sale, five mares were sold for $30,000 each, three $28,000 sales were achieved, and several others achieved over $20,000,” Mr Lyne said.

“It was a fair sale compared to the season,” he said.

C and B Ellrott of Morinish in Queensland sold Bighouse Call Girl (Lot 64), a four-year-old mare by Ferns Hill Bennett, out of Token Escort, for $30,000 to Atkins Cattle Co, Taroom.

Another $30,000 purchase was for Lot 48 Booerie Creek Arieta  to Shamil Livestock in New South Wales, purchased from Mr Huon Smith. 

Kristin and Jay Pearce of Wandoan sold Daleys Avario (Lot 219), a nine-year-old mare, for $30,000 to Lakeview Stud, Gingin in Western Australia.

$30,000 was also paid for Kyeema Luv A Bull, sold by M and P Wright of Canungra (Lot 147), so too Shaldon Whisper (Lot 198), sold by Mr T Duggan to L Cameron of Augathella QLD.

Auctioneers Peter Bird (Ray White Rural Dalby), Bruce Birch (Ray White Rural NSW), Blake O’Reilly (Ray White Rural Guyra/Armidale) and Harry Larnach (Ray White Rural Emms Mooney) sold 77% of the lots available for a total of just over $1.8million.

  • MARES: 130 offered, 102 sold, average price $11,156.86
  • GELDINGS: 93 offered, 70 sold, average price $7150.00
  • STALLIONS: 4 offered, 3 sold, average price $6,500.00

Ray White Rural CEO Stephen Nell said the network support came from far and wide to ensure the success of the event.

“Our auctioneers worked skillfully and tirelessly throughout the sale, and they were supported by a big team behind the scenes.”

“Bid spotters AJ Riley (Ray White Rural Roma), Andrew Kirtley, Wyatt Wrigley, David Felsch and Roger Lyne (Ray White Rural Dalby), Ben Johnston (Ray White Tenterfield), Andrew Summerville and Riley Wellman (Ray White Rural Casino), Gary Wendt (Ray White Livestock Gracemere), Bill Seeney (Ray White Longreach/Barcaldine), Russell Smyth (Ray White Rural Bingara/Warialda), Matt Faulkiner (Ray White Pittsworth) and Wade Hartwig and Mal Berlin (Ray White Livestock Toowoomba) took thousands of bids over the two days,” Mr Nell, who was also a bid spotter throughout the sale, said.

“The office was constantly bustling with vendors, bidders, competitors and agents with Brooke Noller (Ray White Rural Dalby) leading a team of professionals including Prue Birch (Ray White Rural Tenterfield), Georgie Griffiths (Ray White Rural Casino), Annette Wendt, Amy Moloney, Jennifer Ziesemer, Di Lyne, Kylie Sankey, Emma Archibald, Melissa Kirtley and Pam Ostwald (Ray White Rural Dalby).”

“Grace Mooney of Ray White Emms Mooney recorded bids and Laura Tacey handled the massive content distribution through social media during the sale.”

“Congratulations must go to Roger Lyne, the principal of Ray White Dalby who empowers his team to make this iconic event successful, and to Bruce Birch who ably coordinates our equine team of over 30 nationally,” Mr Nell concluded.
