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.”

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.

Equine Sales Company Announces 2018 Auction Dates

(December 20, 2017 — Opelousas, Louisiana)  Equine Sales Company is pleased to announce the dates for its three auctions in 2018 to be held in Opelousas, Louisiana.
The 2-year-olds in training sale has been set for Monday, May 7, with the breeze show set for May 6, the day after the Kentucky Derby. The consignor select yearling sale will be held Thursday, September 6, and the open yearling and mixed sale will be Sunday, October 28.
“This will mark our seventh year in operation, so I think we have found the proper placement of these sales that works well for horsemen in Louisiana, the Southwest and around the country,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “We had a very strong year in 2017, despite our select sale being impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We are anticipating an even better year in 2018 as we continue with two of the most positive enhancements we have made in recent years with the unified yearling sale in cooperation with the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association and the Equine Sales Oaks and Derby for sale graduates at Evangeline Downs.”
