Malta Magic topped the seventh annual Goshen Yearling Sale that was held on Monday, Sept. 13 at the Mark Ford Training Center in Middletown, New York.

Selling as Hip 114, Malta Magic was purchased for $67,000 by Hunter Oaks of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. Bred by Eric Taddeo of Warwick, New York and consigned by agent Cameo Hills Farm, the Huntsville filly out of 2013 Lismore champion JK Black Beauty is a half-sister to JK American Beauty ($478,977).

Back To Hicksville, Hip 112, and Bet On Buter, Hip 79, rounded out the top three highest priced yearlings of the sale, each selling for $62,000 from the Cameo Hills consignment. Back To Hicksville, a Huntsville-I Am A Snob filly, was purchased by Biran Doyle of Dundas, Ont. She is a half-sister to So Rude ($229,471). Rocknroll Stabe of Shorewood, Illinois acquired Bet On Buter, a colt also sired by Huntsville out of Billmar Scooter, a 45-time career winner with more than $800,000 in earnings.

Huntsville offspring were in demand at the sale that featured mostly New York and Pennsylvania-breds. Twenty yearlings by the stallion sold for an average price of $40,300.

Other top priced yearlings, all sired by Huntsville, were purchased by New York-based horseman Ray Schnittker, including Hunting Season, a filly out of Thats How We Roll for $60,000, and colts Woodrow F Call and Kicks Like A Mule, each selling for $50,000.

Woodrow F Call is a full-brother to last year's $46,000 sale topper Yes Indeed. He is out of Ontario Sires Stakes champion Please Me Please, a career winner of more than $1 million in purse earnings. The colt's half-siblings include Rock Me Please ($479,172), Roll On ($346,791), Rockin Finish ($574,377) and Rockin Wizard ($551,759).

Another Huntsville colt, I Was Tricked, out of Shepulledthegoalie, garnered a bid of $55,000 by David Hamm of Dagsboro, Delaware.

“It was great to get back to a normal sale after last year and I think everyone felt the same way. Everything ran very smoothly without any problems and the live and remote bidders came out in force and the numbers clearly reflected that,” said Mark Ford. “This sale just keeps getting better each year and that’s because of all our great consignors and customers. We are already planning for the 2022 edition of this sale to be even bigger and better.”

The 2021 Goshen Yearling Sale, with live online bidding available through Cattle In Motion, included 122 yearlings selling for an average price of $17,284. With over $2.1 million in sales it proved to be a 24% increase over the previous sales record of $1.6 million set in 2019.
