As we stand witness to the current resurgence of the market place, there has yet to be a more positive outlook to the commercial arena. In 2014 the continued growth of the Darby Dan consignment, combined with the tremendous success both in the sales ring and our graduate’s performances on the track shows there is yet to be a more advantageous partnership established. Highlights include: the sale La Cloche for $2,400,000; the sale of Taris for $2,350,000; the sale of a Street Cry-Winter Memories colt for $400,000.
