(New Orleans, La.) – The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana (BSCOL) announces 220 hips have been cataloged for their 2015 Annual Yearling Sale, set for a start at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, La.
Tim Boyce, sales director of the BSCOL, believes this sale has become the outstanding sale of the region. �This sale has ascended from the leading Louisiana Yearling Sale to the strongest Southwest Regional Sale,� states Boyce.  �With six states represented I feel buyers from all over will be attending as the pedigrees are strong.  I�ve already received calls for cataloges, which indicates the heightened interest in the sale. When buyers get their books they will be even more pleased�.
 
Ninety-six stallions are represented with 36 consignors. �The sire power this year is unbelievable� said Roger Heitzmann, secretary/treasurer of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (LTBA). �Inside our catalog, buyers will find yearlings by Archarcharch, Broken Vow, Eskendereya, Into Mischief, The Factor, Tale of the Cat, and Warrior�s Reward. Top Louisiana stallions including Custom For Carlos, Forefathers, Half Ours, Songandaprayer, and Yankee Gentleman along with regional sire leaders Too Much Bling and Grasshopper will give buyers ample opportunities to find a horse for any program.. Tim has done an outstanding job in putting our sale together in his first year at the helm and he intends to have catalogs in hand for distribution at the various sales around the country.�
