LTBA to hold 2022 Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Yearling Sale, October 1st

The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association announced today, February 18, 2022, that they will be hosting a Yearling Sale followed by a mixed session under the banner of Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana on October 1st.

The sale will be held at the Equine Sales of Louisiana Facility in Opelousas, La. and be limited by the number of stalls at the facility being 228.

After not conducting a sale since 2015 the LTBA stepped up last year to host a sale when Equine Sales of Louisiana opted not to have a yearling sale in 2021. Last year’s sale averaged just over $13,000 with a median of $8,000.

With the introduction of Sports Betting and the coming of Historical Horse Racing Machines it is anticipated that purses for Accredited Louisiana Breds will increase dramatically.

The entry deadline is July 6th. Entry forms will be available in late May and be available to be downloaded from the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association web site of
