Equine Sales Company Announces 2018 Auction Dates

(December 20, 2017 — Opelousas, Louisiana)  Equine Sales Company is pleased to announce the dates for its three auctions in 2018 to be held in Opelousas, Louisiana.
The 2-year-olds in training sale has been set for Monday, May 7, with the breeze show set for May 6, the day after the Kentucky Derby. The consignor select yearling sale will be held Thursday, September 6, and the open yearling and mixed sale will be Sunday, October 28.
“This will mark our seventh year in operation, so I think we have found the proper placement of these sales that works well for horsemen in Louisiana, the Southwest and around the country,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “We had a very strong year in 2017, despite our select sale being impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We are anticipating an even better year in 2018 as we continue with two of the most positive enhancements we have made in recent years with the unified yearling sale in cooperation with the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association and the Equine Sales Oaks and Derby for sale graduates at Evangeline Downs.”

Equine Sales Company Records Across-the-Board Gains in Consignor Select Yearling Sale

17-yrlg-sale-topper

Equine Sales Company on Thursday posted gains in every meaningful category in its Consignor Select Yearling Sale in Opelousas, Louisiana. All told, 138 of 193 head sold for a total of $1,636,400 with an average of $11,858 and median of $7,000. That represents a gain of 8.8 percent in sales compared to last year’s total of $1,503,900 with an identical number of horses sold. This year’s average of $11,858 was an increase of 8.8 percent from last year, and the median of $7,000 is 27.3 percent better than last year’s $5,500. The buyback rate this year was 28.5 percent compared to 33.7 percent last year.

“We expected to have a strong sale as our consignors really showcased a excellent selection of yearlings,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “But I was even a little surprised how good the numbers were considering the region is still dealing with the aftereffects of Hurricane Harvey.”

The sale-topper was Hip 116, a Louisiana-bred colt by 2003 Horse of the Year Mineshaft out of the stakes-placed Cat Thief mare Noble Bandit. The April 19 foal was consigned by 4M Ranch, agent, and purchased by Louis Roussell III.

Five other horses sold for $50,000 or more with the leading filly being Hip 93, a Louisiana-bred daughter of Violence who sold for $50,000 to O’Brien Bloodstock from Pike Racing, agent.

For hip-by-hip results, go to http://www.equinesalesofla.com.

The Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale is set for October 15.
