The 45th annual Dalby Australian Stock Horse sale sold the first 50 lots under the lights on Saturday evening at the Dalby showgrounds before a large crowd.
Of the 50 lots offered 44 mares and geldings sold for an average of $12,700, topping at $35,000 twice.
Topping the geldings was the nine-year-old Hazelwood Billy The Kid offered by Terry and Geraldine Dwan, Warwick, who sold for $35,000 to Evan and Kim Acton, Millungera Station, Julia Creek.
The beautiful natured gelding appealed to Mr Acton as he had won maiden, novice and plenty of open campdrafts.
"He really is a lovely horse and I think he is worth that money - he is an open company horse," Mr Acton said.
Hazelwood Billy The Kid's heritage pedigree reads well as he is by Hazelwood Conman from the great mare Steigers Reward and traces back to Elliotts Creek Cadet on the sire line.
Mr Acton will campaign the gelding in the future.
The nine-year-old black mare Meadowbrook Magnolia offered by Corbould Oakdene Pty Ltd, Ramsay, sold for $35,000 sold to Adrian and JJ Lamb, Gwambigwine,Taroom.
She is a daughter of Acres Destiny from the mare Hayden Rebecca.

Also by Acres Destiny from a Knights Lisa dam, who is a daughter of Warrenbri Romeo, she entered the sale ring with miles of mustering under her belt.
