Equine Sales Co. of Louisiana’s 2-year-olds in training and horses of racing age sale in Opelousas, La. begins at 11 a.m. CDT, today, May 10, and will be streamed live on the sale company’s website. 101 head are cataloged.
“The catalog looked very strong on paper, and I think that was proven on the track with some excellent workouts,” said sales director Foster Bridewell.
All sale graduates are eligible for the Equine Sales Derby and Equine Sales Oaks, to be run next spring at Evangeline Downs for $75,000 purses.
The inaugural runnings of these races were held May 6-7: Jerry Namy’s Couche Couche took the Derby and Chance Yelverton’s Lil Allie Dancer, the Oaks.
