GAC-TV is reporting that TRIGGER, the famous horse ridden by the late COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAMER ROY ROGERS, brought in $266,500 at an auction of ROGERS memorabilia this week. TRIGGER died in 1965 at the age of 33 and was stuffed, mounted and put on display at the ROY ROGERS & DALE EVANS MUSEUM in Southern CALIFORNIA and later in BRANSON.
The MUSEUM is now closing, and ROY ROGERS JR. has been selling its remains in NEW YORK. The winning big on TRIGGER came from the rural-themed cable network, RFD-TV. Other items that were sold during the auction included a 1964 BONNEVILLE convertible (selling for $254,000), ROY’s first guitar (selling for $8,750), his first pair of boots ($7,500) and a charm bracelet that sold for $20,000.
