Nineteen of Nineteen Louisiana Breds in the Sale, Sold in the Ring
A Louisiana-bred filly named Charlotte G by promising young Louisiana stallion Bind topped the Texas 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale at Lone Star Park on Tuesday, April 10, 2018. The April 30 foal from the Twin Oaks Training Center Consignment brought the hammer down with a $140,000 bid from Gary Simms, agent for M&M Racing.
Charlotte G was one of two horses to work the fastest time of :10.2 during Sunday’s under tack show at Lone Star. Bred by Thomas Galvin, she is the first foal out of the unraced Summer Bird mare Promise Me G, whose family includes Grade 3-winning Texas-bred Promise Me Silver. Her sire Bind (Pulpit-Check, by Unbridled) was the top freshman sire in Louisiana for 2017, and is currently the leading second crop sire in the state. Bind stands at Jay Adcock’s Red River Farms in Coushatta, Louisiana for a fee of $1,500 live foal.
All nineteen Louisiana bred two-year-olds that went through the sale, sold in the ring for a total of $611,200. The Louisiana bred average of $32,168 was well above the sale average of $25,737.
