A SON of the legendary US Quarter Horse sire Metallic Cat set a new record for performance horses sold in Australia when it sold for $210,000 at the Landmark Classic sale at Tamworth.

One Moore Metallic,  a rising three-year-old colt from Australian Stockmans Hall of Fame open campdraft winner One Moore Diva, was sold by Russ and Bec Bradley, R & R Livestock, Officer, Victoria, to longtime Classic supporter, campdrafter Wally Rae, “The Overflow”, Marlborough, Queensland. Mr Rae also bought one of last year’s $70,000 sale toppers, Sophie Duck.

This year’s sale, which averaged $14,568 and had an 83 per cent clearance and surpassed the previous Landmark Classic record of $120,000, set in 2013 for One Stylish Pepto.

The sale capped off a huge week of campdrafting, including the Classic draft, won by Queenslander Brendan Fitzgerald, Roma, who rode Bonniedoon Kanya Catolena for an 88-point camp and course in the final.
