There is a buzz in the Nutrien Classic family today with Maree & Peter Rogans mare ROMANTIC REMEDY selling for $100,000 this morning at Lot 342.
ROMANTIC REMEDY is the first foal from imported mare SHIRLEY SHINEY by HAZELWOOD CONMAN. Peter said “We breed her for this sale, we imported ‘Shiney’ from Annie Reynolds in the states. I’ve always been a fan of her long established line of horses and purchased her as a 2yo”
SHIRLEY SHINEY is by Annies well known stallion, the late VERY SMART REMEDY, and her half sister won the ‘Worlds Greatest Horseman’ in the US in 2021. Shiney herself won the title at the ARBC in Dalby ‘Australian Greatest Horseman’ in April 2021.
“We have her full brother at home and he is lovely too. We are over the moon and really is a great start for Shiney and her producing record to get this for her first foal.” Said Peter.
She was purchased today by MRH Enterprises, Michael and Bec Hayes from Scone. Bec said “We came looking at a conman mare, there is a lot in the sale but we had a friend that knew a lot about her mare line and was very excited about it so we looked into her.
Michael and Bec have moved to Scone from QLD and are Angus breeders, so horses that can chase cows is what they are looking for in their breeding program. “We are cattlemen that love campdrafting, that’s just what we do, so we come to this sale to find horses that suit our family life” Bec said she was still shaking from the bidding. “It was nerve wracking, I can’t even really tell you what happened. Rob Leach did a great job, she is a lovely mare and we will bring her home, let her mature and grow and have a lot of fun on her.”
Auctioneer from Goondiwindi, hot off yesterdays $260,000 was again impressed with the quality through the sale. “Bidding was solid, there is a lot of interest in the cowhorse genetics through the program. This mare was a very special combination being by Conman, a very unique mare that will make for an impressive breeding program.
