BREEDERS SALES OF LOUISIANA
YEARLING SALE followed by
DEADLINE JULY 6TH
Breeders Sales of Louisiana will hold its 2022 YEARLING SALE followed by MIXED SESSIONon October 1st at Equine Sales Facility in Opelousas.
After not conducting a sale from 2015 through 2020, the LTBA stepped up to host a sale last year when Equine Sales Company decided not to conduct any sales in 2021. Last year’s sale was a tremendous success averaging just over $13,000 with a median of $8,000.
LOUISIANA BREDS ARE IN HIGH DEMAND
“Louisiana Breds have been very popular at the sales around the country. Now with the introduction of Sports Betting and the coming of Historical Horse Racing Machines, we anticipate that purses for Accredited Louisiana Breds will increase dramatically. We expect the value of, and demand for Louisiana Bred yearlings to increase substantially as well,” says LTBA Secretary/Treasurer Roger Heitzmann, III
“I expect this year’s sale to continue the momentum that started with the sale last year and anticipate an increased interest from both consignors and buyers,” states Tom Early, sales director. “The increase in purses is due to be evident by the time this year’s yearling crop reach racing age.” The entry deadline is July 6th. Entries are limited to the number of stalls at the Equine Sales Facility, and are filling fast. A mixed session will be held following the yearling sale. In addition to yearlings, entries are being accepted for broodmares, weanlings and horses of racing age.
