(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.”
