SHELBYVILLE, IN–NOVEMBER 7, 2022–Gordon L. Timm of Hastings, Michigan, with the help of his horse Extermynator, earned the $15,000 Juvenile Challenge Bonus offered by Horseshoe Indianapolis this fall for any juvenile racehorse that went through Heritage Place Sale Co.’s September or November 2021 sales.

Horseshoe Indianapolis, in cooperation with the American Quarter Horse Association and Heritage Place Inc., offered the $15,000 incentive bonus to yearlings who were sold in either the September Yearling Sale or November Mixed Sale at Heritage Place in Oklahoma City.

Extermynator sold for $55,000 at the 2021 September Yearling Sale. Bred by champion breeder Bobby D. Cox, he is sired by Tres Seis and out of the Corona Cartel mare Cartel Regards.

Every one of his six career starts have been at Horseshoe Indianapolis.

His career earnings were $144,099, and as the highest official finishing Heritage Place Sale graduate, he adds the extra bonus.
