(Edited press release)
The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana has expanded its yearling sale to two days because of increased support from consignors. The sale will begin on its originally scheduled date of Sept. 28 and will continue through Sept. 29 at the Ike Hamilton Center in West Monroe, La.
“The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana is in existence to provide the breeders of Louisiana a viable and professionally operated venue to sell the horses they breed,” said Tom Early, chief executive officer of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association and sales coordinator for The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana. “After numerous discussions we determined that limiting the number of yearlings sold would be detrimental to our cause.”
When the total number of entrants is determined, the yearlings will be split equally between the days.
“We believe that the success of last year’s sale and our breeders’ incentive program are contributing to the large number of yearlings being entered in our sale,” Early said.
