BSCOL Hires Boyce as 2015 Yearling Sales Director

May 11, 2015

The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana (BSCOL), a subsidiary of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association, today announced the hiring of Tim Boyce as Sales Director for their 2015 Yearling Sale. The sale will be held Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, Louisiana. Tim comes to the BSCOL from Fasig-Tipton Sales where he was the Sales Director for their Texas Sales the last 19 years.

As the Sales Director, Tim will head the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Annual Yearling Sale. This sale has been in operation since 1988 and serves as the leading outlet for Louisiana Breeders to bring their yearlings to market. Since its start, the BSCOL has continued to show growth in numbers and marked improvement in bloodlines. Yearlings bred in states other than Louisiana have done quite well in recent years as well, making this sale a leader in the Southwest Market. �We want to build upon what we have in place, and we believe we have the man to do just that,� said Brett Brinkman, President of the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana. �Tim has a lot of experience at doing what we are asking him to do. That is to produce a quality, well managed, sale.�

All Louisiana breds that that pass through the sales ring are eligible for either the Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes, or the A.L. �Red� Erwin Memorial Stakes to be run in 2017.

Tom Early, President of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association, believes this is a shot in the arm for our association. �We always strive to do the best that we can. There are members of this association who insist that we have this sale, as it is is the best way to attract buyers from all over the United States.  Having Tim on board will help our sale tremendously.�
