Extraordinary circumstances were by and large overcome
After an especially intense two month period involving CTS’s short notice announcement of sale in Johannesburg to compete with the Bloodstock South Africa (BSA) Ready to Run Sale, we completed the Balmoral consignment of 75 horses to the latter sale (to which entries for those 75 had been made before the CTS announcement).
Due to the absence of the large Summerhill consignment (moved over to CTS), this became the dominant consignment in a one day sale of 130 lots – yesterday.
The intensity of showing and managing through the ring was thus amplified. But mission was accomplished, leaving the Balmoral/Allan team somewhat exhausted.
