Equine Sales Company Changes Sale Date to August 20

2020 Consignor Select Yearling Sale Date has been changed
New Date is Thursday, August 20, 2020

 

The Board of Directors of Equine Sales Company voted in favor of changing the date of our 2020 Consignor Select Yearling Sale including Two Year Old in Training from September 3, 2020 to August 20, 2020.

With the announcement of Fasig-Tipton consolidating their three yearling sales which will be held on September 9th and 10th in Lexington, KY and the Kentucky Oaks and Derby scheduled for September 4th & 5th, 2020, the board decided the previous sale date would need to be changed.  By getting ahead of these events, the new date of Equine Sales’ yearling and 2 year old sale will enable more buyers to attend the sale avoiding the congested sale and event calendar in early September.

Also the Consignor Select Yearling sale will now be the first yearling sale of the year and the Board of Directors feel that this will allow breeders and consignors the best opportunity for their offerings.

Please Save this New Date into you Calendars.  Updated Contracts are now Available.  See above link.

Agent Stevens Likes What He Finds at Louisiana Sale

Purchased Calibrachoa filly for $45,000 to top this year’s sale.

 

Josh Stevens is a regular at all prominent North American sales, but for the past two years he has also been in action at the Equine Sales of Louisiana’s 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale in Opelousas, La., an auction that is below the radar for many bloodstock agents.

Stevens, who said he started attending Equine Sales of Louisiana when his clients began sending horses to race at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, purchased a gray/roan daughter of Calibrachoa for $45,000 at this year’s renewal April 2. The price was the highest paid for any horse at the auction, which also included broodmares and racing or broodmare prospects.

EQUINE SALES COMPANY Announces Complete 2019 Auction Schedule

Yearlings Sales Dates Confirmed
Equine Sales Company has released its complete 2019 schedule of sales after previously announcing that the 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale will be held April 2. All auctions will be held in Opelousas, Louisiana.
 
The 2019 schedule includes the 
Consignor Select Yearling Sale on 
Thursday, September 5

,
and the Open Yearling and Mixed Sale on Sunday, October 27.
While the 2-year-old sale is being held about a month earlier than in previous years, the other two sales are essentially on the same spot on the calendar.
 
“We believe the earlier 2-year-old sale will work well for buyers and consignors according to the feedback we received,” said Sales Director Foster Bridewell. “But we also received word from our customers that the other two sales were already well placed on the calendar. Our select sale last year was one of our best ever, so we want to stick with what is working.”

2019 DATE FOR 2YR OLD IN TRAINING SALE MOVED TO
APRIL 2ND!!
Equine Sales Company has announced that its 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale, traditionally held in early May, will instead be held earlier in 2019. The dates have been set for Tuesday, April 2, with the breeze show set for Sunday, March 31, in Opelousas, Louisiana.
“Our Board of Directors and Sales Committee responded to feedback received from our dedicated buyers and consignors and think this will be good fit for everyone,” said Foster Bridewell, Sales Director of Equine Sales Company. “Many 2-year-olds in this region have traditionally been prepared to race opening weekends of Evangeline Downs, Louisiana Downs and Lone Star Park. This shift in date will allow buyers and their trainers to purchase horses that will hopefully be ready to run in the early Summer races.”
Consignment information and deadlines for the 2-year-old sale will be posted in the future at www.equinesalescompany.com
