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.

Both races were 5 ½ furlongs on the turf.
