Kelly Sutherland tops Rangeland Derby canvas auction bids

Grande Prairie’s Kelly Sutherland was the top bid at the Rangeland Derby canvas auction in Calgary Thursday night. The chuckwagon driver was bought by Friends of the King for $110,000 for his final appearance at the Calgary Stampede.

Tarp auction sales slumped last year along with the economy, but things look to be rebounding. Thursday’s auction brought in $2.42 million dollars, which is $123,000 more than last year.

Grande Prairie’s Rick Fraser brought in the third highest amount at $95,000, while Kelly’s younger brother Kirk went for $82,5000. Kirk won the Rangeland Derby last year, while his son Mitch came second and pulled $70,000 at the auction.

The next chuckwagon auction will be April 6th for most of the WPCA tour.
