Louisiana-breds Shine at Texas 2YO Sale

Accredited Louisiana breds sold exceptionally well at the Texas Two-Year-Olds In Training Sale which was held Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at Lone Star Park at Grand  Prairie. 

A Louisiana-bred filly from the first crop of Spendthrift Farm’s stallion Free Drop Billy consigned by Carl Deville as Hip 134 topped the sale at $200,000. The filly attracted attention after she breezed a quick 10.2 over the Lone Star Park dirt Monday afternoon. Out of the Half Ours mare Solo Buena, she’s a half-sister to stakes-placed Swot Analysis, who was second in the Louisiana Futurity at two. The filly previously sold as a yearling in the 2021 Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Yearling Sale for $10,500. 

A total of 30 accredited Louisiana breds sold for $1,137,500 with an average of $37,917, above the sale average of $34,667. The median price for Louisiana breds sold through the ring was $30,000 also above the sale median of $28,000.

Other Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Yearling Sale graduates showed significant bumps over their yearling sale prices. Hip 133, a filly by Star Guitar out of the Hard Spun mare, Well Spun also consigned by Carl Deville, sold for $30,000 an increase of $21,500 over her yearling sale price of $8,500. And Hip 100, a colt by Guilt Trip out of the stakes winning Milwaukee Brew mare Hometown Gossip, sold for $24,000 out of the Benchmark Training Center Consignment, up $20,500 from his yearling sale price of $3,500. 

Following the sale, Roger Heitzmann, Secretary/Treasurer of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association said “Louisiana breds offer pinhookers a terrific return on their investment. With purses on the rise in Louisiana, I expect the demand for accredited Louisiana breds to rise as well.”
