There are people that breed "Pontiacs", not "Cadillacs" - the Pontiac breeders seem to be more populous than the Caddy breeders.
If you take your horse to a select sale (if you can, there are conditions that need to be met most times) you will fetch a higher price. Most people don't think to do that and just take it to the local livestock auction.
At least, that's where many many horses end up.
My point of this thread was to show that at most auctions your average horse won't even recoup a decent stud fee.
Again, I'm NOT addressing the Cadillac breeders.
