Thanks for posting the story on Sensation, Smitty. I hate it that Tattersals is being torn down...spent many hours at the sales there. Course we'd always slip out the back door and across to the "Coach House" for a toddy or two from time to time, not to mention the great Hot Browns they had there.

Deedy how did you get Sensation? Was someone looking for a good horse for you?

Dutch, Deedy must be out of pocket. The article above answers your question. Mr. Sensation was bought by Mr. and Mrs.
Emmette Darby in 1957 and moved from Steve Hill to Vic Thompson. Deedy bought him from the Darbys in the fall of 1960.
Mr. Sensation was one of the most successful of all time at the Celebration winning 9 blue ribbons there. He won the aged
gelding class 6 times with both Steve Hill and Vic Thompson riding. He won the Amateur Geldings with Mrs. Darby and of
course he won the Ladies amateur and the Amateur Stake with Deedy Decker in 1961. There is a picture of Mrs. Darby
on Sensation on page 28 of Who Dat.

Dutch, actually we bought him from the Darby's at the Oklahoma City Horse show. Vic showed in in the stake and when he won it was announced I was the new owner. The Darby's changed their minds at the very LAST minute when Vic lined up in front of them and they were shaking ther heads NO, no sale...and you know Vic he acted like he didn't see them and then it was too late. He died on my birthday in Omaha Nebraska in 1962. I was showing another horse in the stake class, lined up next to Vic and so I saw the Darby's trying to get out of the sale.

These photos sent in by Richard Hickey:


Notables at Murray Farm Sale, circa 1970


John Young & George Walden attend to R.B. Hickey.
This photo ran in the Report with the caption: "R.B. gets the treatment"

Times have really changed . Look at those guys with coats and ties on at a horse sale.
I see Steve Beech, Russell Pate , Vic Thompson, S.W. Beech that I recognize.

Yep Looks like B. Hale to me.
Good thing that John was smiling when he had that straight razor up side R.B.'s throat!

Billy Hale? Looks familiar?

Barn, that could be Steve Hill behind the Foster Grants. He and Billy Hale were about the same height.
The lady behind the Foster Grants could be Marianne Leach.

Those are worthy photos, but the award would have to go to Richard Hickey, not me!
