Heritage Place continued to set records into day two of its three-day Fall Mixed Sale on Friday, while posting only 14 repurchases from 546 head offered in the first two days.

"Repurchases are at an all-time low; this a great statement made to the industry that the demand for racing American Quarter Horses is alive and well," Spence Kidney, Heritage Place Operations Manager, said after Friday's second session. "It has been an exciting couple of days and we have a really strong group of horses for tomorrow and I think we will have a strong close to the Fall Mixed Sale."
