The blizzard that raged across the Midwest and East Coast paralyzed traffic and left hundreds of thousands without power. Yet, it couldn't stop horsemen from 25 states, five Canadian provinces, and Europe from plowing their way to the famed Delaware Co. fairgrounds for the 47th annual Winter Sale.

"The conditions were very unpleasant," said sale manager Jerry Haws. "I want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding and for the extreme effort it took to get themselves and their horses to the sale. We had a good crowd and a good sale."

Walnut Hall Ltd.'s star studded consignment topped the two day event with its fabulous trotters. The beautiful Lady Stormont with a new Deweycheatumnhowe foal by her side drew applause from the crowd when she sold for $80,000 to Eric Baker of Long Sault, Ontario.

Kidman Hall, a lovely Like A Prayer half sister to the great broodmare Amour Angus and in foal to Deweycheatumnhowe went home with Dr. John Hurtgen of Nandi Farm for $55,000.

Jules Siegel was pleased to get the 1:54.4 $300,000 winner Go Go Gabby, also in foal to Deweycheatumnhowe, for $45,000.

Enchanting Lady lived up to her name as she proudly displayed her new Deweycheatumnhowe foal. John Magnusson of Paris, Kentucky purchased the 3,TT1:55.2 daughter of Angus Hall for $40,000.

The Walnut Hall Ltd. yearlings were led by Vixen Hall, a fancy Tom Ridge filly from the family of B Cor Pete, for $16,500. Garnet Hall, a beautiful Striking Sahbra daughter of Go Go Gabby, brought $15,500.

The handsome trotting stallion Armbro Approach was purchased by Heath Calvert of Illinois for $27,000. The son of Mr Lavec out of a half sister to Super Bowl was offered as a racing and breeding prospect.
