The Dakota Breeders Classic Quarter Horse production sale was held on Sept. 9 at Mobridge Livestock Auction with a huge crowd of buyers, bidders, and spectators on hand. The Dakota Breeders Classic consists of sale hosts Five Arrow Quarter Horses, Broken Heart Ranch, and the DuBray Ranch. This year’s guest consignors included the Eszlinger, Talebar, Ganje, and Jones ranches. The sale catalog was loaded with performance horse pedigrees from these outstanding programs and top reference sires in the nation.
It was the 17 year of hosting this sale and it continues to increase in size and popularity. While adding some new names to the buyers’ list, it is the strong contingency of repeat buyers that is testimony to the quality of the horses offered. In addition to offering their entire 2016 production they also offered a nice selection of yearlings, brood mares, and young started horses to make it a well rounded offering.
