Supplements Bring Sunday’s Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale Offering to Nearly 150 Head

A robust list of supplements to Equine Sales Company’s Open Yearling and Mixed Sale has boosted the catalog to nearly 150 horses for the auction set for Sunday, October 27. The sale will begin at 11 a.m. in the sale pavilion in Opelousas, Louisiana.

The sale will kick-off with more than 50 yearlings on offer, followed by weanlings, broodmares and horses of racing age. In addition, four stallions are cataloged including Kentucky Derby (G1) runner-up Closing Argument with nearly $25 million in progeny earnings and graded stakes winner D’Wildcat with more than $27 million in progeny earnings. Both stallions have been perennially near the top of the sire list in Louisiana. Mean Season and Run Production are also being offered.

As usual, the sale includes offspring of many of Louisiana’s top stallions, including Astrology, Gemologist, Court Vision, Star Guitar, Custom for Carlos and many others. Top national stallions represented include Fusaichi Pegasus, Goldencents and Bodemeister.

“This might be the strongest offering we’ve ever had for our open yearling and mixed sale,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “We had six horses go for $50,000 or more at our Select Yearling Sale last month, including a $145,000 sale-topper, so the market has been strong here, and we expect to draw buyers from around the region for this sale.”

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

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.

Nearly 220 Head Entered in Equine Sales Company Select Yearling Sale

Contact Foster Bridewell for more info at foster@equinesalesofla.com or 337-678-3024

 

Equine Sales Company has released a catalog of 219 head for its upcoming Consignor Select Yearling Sale. The auction is set for Thursday, September 6, starting at 10 a.m. in Opelousas, Louisiana.

The top four Louisiana stallions by 2018 progeny earnings—Star Guitar, Astrology, Half Ours and Custom for Carlos—are all well-represented in the sale, as are prominent Kentucky sires English Channel, Goldencents, Shackleford and Temple City, among others.

The first-crop sires represented include Palace, Medal Count, Race Day, Tapiture, Wicked Strong, Lea, Secret Circle, Jack Milton, Amira’s Prince and Koh I Noor.

“This year’s catalog is about the same size as the 214 head we had last year, but we’ve seen the quality continue to grow each year, and we have nearly 30 different consignors for this sale so I think we are going to have a strong selection of yearlings,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “We’ve also launched an improved website to make it easier for consignors and buyers to access the sale catalog and other sale information.”

The catalog can be viewed online at www.equinesalescompany.com, and live video of the auction will be available on sale day.
