Texas Thoroughbred Association Sets August 21 Date for Yearling Sale

Austin, Texas – March 2, 2017 –  The Texas Thoroughbred Association has announced that the Texas Summer Yearling and Mixed Sale will be held Monday, August 21, at the Texas Thoroughbred Sales Pavilion on the grounds of Lone Star Park.

Last year’s auction marked the first to be operated by the Texas Thoroughbred Association in partnership with Lone Star Park and recorded substantial increases over the final Texas yearling sale operated by Fasig-Tipton in 2014. The sale-topper was a Texas-bred colt by leading Texas sire Too Much Bling who sold for $105,000.

 “After not having a yearling sale in Texas in 2015, I think the results last year proved that there is still ample demand from buyers and quality stock being offered by consignors,” said Tim Boyce, sales director. “With this spot on the calendar we expect to be able to draw horses from all around the region, and the central location of Dallas-Fort Worth makes it easy for buyers and sellers to get here.”

 “Our 2-year-old sale last year has already produced several stakes winners, and over the years this yearling sale has done the same, mostly recently with multiple graded stakes winner Texas Chrome, so we look forward to having another quality catalog this year,” said Mary Ruyle, executive director of the TTA.

Justin Phillip Colt Tops Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale

A colt from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Justin Phillip topped the Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale on Sunday in Opelousas, Louisiana. A total of 114 head sold from 181 offered for $305,000. The average was $2,675 with a median of $1,550. Those numbers were off from last year’s auction when 127 of 190 sold for $414,700 with an average of $3,265 and median of $1,400.

Consigned by Select Sales, agent, and purchased for $22,000 by Scott Gelner, the sale-topper is a Louisiana-bred yearling out of the stakes-placed A. P Jet mare Jet’s Tradition. She is the dam of two starters, including $227,806 earner Jet Majesty.

“After setting a record yearling price of $145,000 in our select yearling sale in September and also posting big increases in gross sales, average and median, it’s not surprising that the numbers for this auction were down a little,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director for Equine Sales Company. “We had a mare in foal to Uncle Mo last year that brought $55,000 and another mare go for $48,000, so that kind of skewed the average for that auction. When you discount those, we were pretty much on par with that sale.”

Next up for Equine Sales Company is the 2-year-olds in training sale next year on May 9 with the breeze show on May 7.
