NEW YORK — Roy Rogers’ stuffed horse, Trigger, has been sold at auction in New York City for more than $266,000.
Christie’s says Rogers’ faithful companion was bought by RFD-TV in Omaha, Neb., at an auction Wednesday of items from the now-closed Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum in Branson, Mo.
CFO Steve Campione says the company hopes to start its own museum. He says the company is looking to buy more Rogers items at auction.
Rogers had Trigger preserved with taxidermy in 1965.
