(Austin, TX) – The 2023 Texas Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale will be held on April 5, 2023 at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, TX. The breeze show is scheduled for Monday, April 3, 2023.
“We’ve already had a lot of interest in our 2023 sale season,” Texas Thoroughbred Association Sales Director Foster Bridewell said. “Our two-year-old sale has certainly gotten stronger in terms of quality in the past few years and those horses have been performing well at tracks around the midwest and south.”
Last year’s $200,000 sales topper, Free Drop Maddy, broke her maiden in the $150,000 Texas Thoroughbred Association Futurity at Lone Star Park, after a strong second on debut at Churchill Downs. She most recently won the Donovan L. Ferguson Memorial Stakes at the Fair Grounds Race Track for Mansfield Racing and Bret Calhoun. And 2022 graduate Tensas Candy won the $100,000 My Trusty Cat Stakes at Delta Downs for Terrell Jarrett Jr and Jorge Lara earlier this month; she was a $29,000 purchase from the Bryan Ford consignment.
“Our graduates are proof of the quality our consignors have offered each year,” Bridewell said. “We’re excited to get to work on putting together another solid edition in April.”
The breeze show is set for Monday, April 3rd, on the Lone Star Park dirt. The sale will be held Wednesday, April 5, 2023, inside the sales pavilion.
The Entry Deadline for the Texas 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale is January 16, 2023, and consignment forms are now available at www.ttasales.com.
