Ben Maher's ride was apparently sold to a Texan show jumper.

A Texan? That should narrow it down a bit! ;)

LOL, and I was just flat out guessing (but you know, Texas... as guesses go that one wasn't that far out on a limb)

Have you seen the new show GCB? I think it's on ABC. Whenever they talk about someone new they mention how they are in oil. It's hilarious.

The H&H article mentions that Tackeray's former owners didn't know who the horse was sold to, as the sale was conducted through trainers and agents. Is this normal for transactions at this level?

That may have been code for "we aren't allowed to tell you".

I doubt that is the case in this particular situation. The family came out weeks ago saying they had purchased the horse via Facebook. Everyone is just surprised its becoming such a big deal as of this week.

It's pretty much normal for alot of very high ticket items and often a way of saying MYOB when asked.
