The R.D. Hubbard Complete Thoroughbred Dispersal was a resounding success. With 54 horses offered in the online auction by ThoroughbredAuctions.Com, all 54 found new homes.

The high seller, bringing a final bid of $91,250 was also the high-selling racehorse. Aisle Runner, a New Mexico-bred 2-year-old gelding by Attila’s Storm, out of the Bernardini mare Garter, was already a winner, and qualified for the $134,632 Rio Grande Senor Futurity, where he will race in the colors of the new owner, Ray Willis.

The second-highest seller and high selling stallion was leading New Mexico sire Attila’s Storm. The 18-year-old stakes-winning son of Forest Wildcat brought $90,000 from buyer Jimmy Vasquez after staying in extended bidding for over 30 minutes. Attila’s Storm is the sire of 22 stakes winners, and will remain in New Mexico, standing at Double LL Farms.

The high-selling broodmare was Garter, a multiple stakes-producing daughter of Bernardini who fetched a final bid of  $80,250 from buyer Victory Crossing, LLC. The 12-year-old mare is a half-sibling to sires Stravinsky and Moscow Ballet. Garter sold pregnant to Attilla’s Storm.

Leading the yearlings was a filly by Attila’s Storm out of the multiple stakes-producing mare, Hang Glide. The New Mexico-bred filly, purchased by Doug May of Fort Stockton, Texas for $62,250, is a half-sister to six stakes horses and earners of over $1 million.

The top weanling was a filly by Attila’s Storm out of Hang Glide. The filly realized a final price of $55,250 from buyer B-4 Farms.

The R.D. Hubbard Complete Thoroughbred Dispersal had originally been scheduled during the Ruidoso Sale in August. After Ruidoso opted to move the live auction to the Lazy E Ranch in New Mexico, partner Tim Jennings was contacted by R.D. Hubbard’s grandson, Shaun Hubbard. From the first phone call, to the close of the auction, was a mere 22 days.

“We are grateful to Shaun Hubbard for having a vision, and trusting us to sell the fruits of his grandfather’s legacy,” Jennings said. “We are also fortunate to have a proven platform where people in the Thoroughbred business have a place to market their horses from the safety of their homes.“

Tim and Cathy Jennings of are the pioneers of internet horse auctions in the United States. They started holding internet horse auctions in 2012. Their previous auction experience was through their family owned company, Professional Auction Services, Inc., the largest show horse auction company in the U.S.
