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.”

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.”

Pair of $50,000 Fillies Pace Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale

(October 29, 2018 – Opelousas, Louisiana) – The Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale, held Sunday in Opelousas, Louisiana, got off to a strong start with a pair of Louisiana-bred yearling fillies bringing $50,000 apiece early in the auction, and the final results showed big increases from last year.
All told, the yearling and mixed sessions combined for sales of $333,100 with 85 of 126 head sold for an average price of $3,919. Last year’s auction reported gross sales of $203,350 with 84 of 183 sold with an average of $2,421. Last year’s top-seller came in at $17,000.
“It was great to see the upward trend continue in Louisiana after we had a very successful select yearling sale in September,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “Having two horses bring $50,000 is a big deal for the open yearling and mixed sale, plus we had good results overall with a jump in average over last year.”
The first filly to bring $50,000 was hip 10, a daughter of Proud Citizen who sold to Charles Castille from the consignment of Brown’s Thoroughbred Farm. Named Gator Proud, the April filly is a full sister to multiple Grade 3 winner Miz Ida out of the stakes winning and Grade 3-placed Green Alligator mare May Gator.
The other $50,000 filly was hip 18, Blessed Anna, who sold to Virginia Lazenby from Select Sales, agent for Coteau Grove Farms LLC. The February foal is from the first crop of the Medaglia d’Oro stallion Fast Anna and out of Pleasantly Blessed, a multiple stakes winner by Pleasant Tap whose three foals to race are all winners.
For complete results, go to www.equinesalescompany.com.
This marked the final sale of the year for Equine Sales Company. Next up in 2019 is the 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale set for April 2.

More than 130 Head Consigned to Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale

Equine Sales Company has announced a catalog of 134 head for its upcoming Opening Yearling and Mixed Sale to be held Sunday, October 28, at 12 noon in Opelousas, Louisiana. The sale company is still accepting supplements, so the catalog is likely to grow before the auction.

The yearling session will include 55 head and will be immediately followed by the mixed session with weanlings, 2-year-olds and broodmares. Many of the broodmares will sell in-foal.

This sale comes on the heels of the Consignor Select Yearling Sale last month, which was one of the most successful auctions since the sale company was founded in 2012. The September sale posted big increases over last year with gross sales of nearly $2 million.

“We had a great auction last month so we hope that will carryover to this sale,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “The catalog for this sale is smaller than last year but it has plenty of quality and should provide options for just about every buyer.”

 

The online catalog is available at www.equinesalescompany.com.

Equine Sales Company Posts Big Gains for Consignor Select Sale

Equine Sales Company’s Consignor Select Yearling Sale, held Thursday, September 6, in Opelousas, Louisiana, recorded significant increases in gross sales and average price compared to last year’s auction, which itself posted big increases over the prior year. All told, 150 of 206 yearlings sold this year for a total of $1,949,900 with an average of $12,999 and median of $6,000. A total of 138 of 193 head sold last year.
This year’s figures marked an 19.2% increase in gross sales from last year’s $1,636,400 and a 9.6% jump in average from $11,858. This year’s median of $6,000 was down from last year’s $7,000, and this year’s buyback rate was 27.2% compared to 28.5% last year.
“We had a very strong sale last year, so we were extremely pleased to exceed those numbers this year,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “The fact that we had 10 horses go for $50,000 or more proves that our consignors really brought some quality stock and that our buyers stepped up to get those individuals.
“There’s a lot of money to run for in Louisiana, and Louisiana-breds have proven again and again that they can win anywhere, most recently with Classy John, who sold here as a 2-year-old for $12,000, winning an $85,000 maiden special at Saratoga last month by daylight.”
The sale was highlighted by two Louisiana-bred colts who hit six figures, topped by a February foal from the first crop of multiple Grade 1 winner Palace. Consigned by 4M Ranch, agent, the colt went to J. Stevens Bloodstock, agent, for $105,000. He is out of the winning Kafwain mare Sheer Speed, whose first starter, by Redding Colliery, is a two-time winner.
Close behind the sale-topper was a March foal by Grade 1 winner and first-crop sire Lea who sold for $100,000 from Red River Farm, agent, to Carl Moore Management LLC. The colt is out the unraced Corinthian daughter Beat the Street, who is the dam of four winners from as many to race including stakes winner Kylie’s Cutie and stakes-placed Blue Ribbon Girl.
Full results of the sale are available at www.equinesalescompany.com.
