Experience and integrity at auctions:

Many in the business long enough can point
to a good horse or two they have been a part of
somehow. The percentage of their
successes is much more important,
and much harder to attain, let alone to do it
year after year. "Experts" who were right once,
can't usually deliver what you want now.

We are mindful of all the very good horsemen
at the top of the racing industry, and our goal
was always to be accepted as their peer,
 --  but to do it our way.
Now, thank God, we've earned our way there.
