Paints took top honors as the top-selling horses at the 2017 Legacy Reining Breeders Sale, which took place October 20–21 in Aubrey, Texas.
Spangled Glory (pictured above) was the high-selling yearling during Friday’s sale. The 2016 gray overo filly by Star Spangled Whiz (QH) and out of Gunners Glory was purchased by Tamarack Ranch LLC for $82,000.
