THE HORSE SALE RESULTS


LOT 31: SPORTIN ROSCOE - $200,000

Lot 31, Sportin Roscoe, was the high seller when the gavel dropped at $200,000. The 2013 chestnut gelding called “South Point” was consigned by New Mexico’s Brooke and Rodey Wilson of Wilson Cattle Company and purchased by Shane O’Hotto, Fort Lupton, Colorado. The ranch-raised gelding sired by Sportin High Brow was bred by Jim Rounsaville, Olney, Texas. “He’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of horse,” said Brooke, who has campaigned South Point as her No. 1 mount for several years. “I don’t think I’ll ever get to own another one as special as he is. I count every day with him as a blessing. A good horse is a good horse—they make themselves. His first jackpot I was high call, and the rest is history. He’s a natural, just a good horse.”
