A 2-year-old colt by Ocala Stud stallion High Cotton, whose main purpose was to help further nutritional and physiological research at the University of Florida/IFAS Equine Sciences Center in Lowell, instead sold for $600,000 — one of the highest prices paid for a horse at the yearly sale.

The sale was the highest ever paid for a UF-bred horse and the second-highest priced horse that Ocala Stud has ever sold at auction in its venerable history.
