Triangle Horse Sales' 39th Winter Sale Sets a New World Record

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK—FEBRUARY 11, 2022—Triangle Horse Sales' recent two-day Winter Sale, known as "The January Sale," opened Friday, January 28 at the State Fair Park in Oklahoma City with a morning sale preview followed by an exciting Friday evening session at 5 p.m.

The session drew a packed house and featured 80 entries, which banked a remarkable average of $31,300. This combined with Saturday sale sessions closed with a two-day total average of $18,300 on 407 catalogued horses, less withdrawals, and an 83-percent sales completion rate.

The strength of sales ran especially deep for the event, with 72-percent of the weekend's completed sales generating totals of more than $10,000, adding 232 horses to Triangle's Top $10,000 Club.

Since Triangle Sales implemented the Top $10,000 Club in 2015, the strong market demand has brought consistent growth to the designated group with each sale. By comparison, 132 entries brought more than $10,000 in last year's Winter Sale and a total of 375 for the 2021 three regular sales combined.

This was the 39th year for the popular "January Sale," which is historically Triangle's most anticipated sale event. This year's sale welcomed buyers from 28 states and three countries.

Cutting and cow horse-bred entries led the collective group average at $27,100, followed by seasoned geldings, which averaged $21,600 on 111 head. Reining-bred horses averaged $19,400, followed by ranching and roping horses at $17,900 and other western performance horses at $9,300.
