Equine Sales Company has announced that its annual Open Yearling and Mixed Sale will be held Sunday, October 16, in Opelousas, Louisiana.
Last year’s Open Yearling and Mixed Sale was topped by a daughter of Touch Gold named Love You Crazy, who sold in foal to Uncle Mo. The mare sold for $55,000 to Chris and Lynne Boutte’s Boutte Training from Roger Daly, agent.
“The fact that we had a mare in foal to a promising young stallion like Uncle Mo last year shows how the quality of this sale has improved in just a few short years here,” said Sales Director Foster Bridewell. “We anticipate another strong offering this year.”
Yearling and weanling graduates of this sale will be eligible for the $75,000 Equine Sales Derby and $75,000 Equine Sales Oaks to be run at Evangeline Downs. The two-turn races were run for the first time this May.
Prior to the Open Yearling and Mixed Sale, Equine Sales Company will conduct its Consignor Select Yearling Sale on September 7.
