Crawford celebrates birthday with two unexpected Summer Mixed purchases
Michelle Crawford wasn’t planning on buying anything at Sunday’s Tattersalls Summer Mixed Sale at the Meadowlands, but ended up being one of the leading buyers.
When the weather didn’t cooperate to go boating Sunday, Michelle Crawford resigned herself to celebrating her birthday with a quiet day at home. Before she knew it, she was perusing the catalog for the Tattersalls Summer Mixed Sale at the Meadowlands when she stumbled upon a broodmare find. A few hours later, Crawford had purchased two horses — including the second highest sold, Hillsonator — and was the second leading buyer at the sale in which 141 horses grossed $2,250,200 for an average of $15,846
