LAS VEGAS (AP) An auction for the world’s biggest ball auction has ended with the largest-selling horse in history, a $5.3 million horse from the Los Angeles County Fair.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the winner of the $3.8 million auction at the fairgrounds in Los Angeles is “Ducky” by owner John Meehan.
It says the winner is the San Antonio, Texas-based Meehams Auction House, which has won several auctions for its horse “Duke.”
The San Antonio-based company won the bidding wars over the past two years and then won the Los Angelos fairground auction on Sunday.
The fairgrounds are known for hosting major horse shows.
Meehan, who runs Meehans Auction House and auctions for other companies, said he expects the winning horse to be worth at least $4 million.MEEHANS Auction House said on its Facebook page Sunday that it was “very pleased with the final outcome.”
It said it will honor the winners of the Los Angles fairgrounds auction and the San Francisco fairgrounds, which is held annually in the Bay Area.
The San Francisco-based firm will also honor the winner at the auction in San Jose, California.
The Associated Press was not able to reach Meehares auction house for comment.
