The CBA is a trade organization with more than 300 members. The association’s membership accounts for more than 80% of the annual auction revenue in North America, as either breeder or consignor. The CBA works on behalf of consignors and commercial breeders to provide representation on sales issues, policies, and procedures.
The association’s initiatives are designed to encourage a fair and expanding marketplace for all who breed, buy, or sell Thoroughbreds. The association was founded in 2005 and is based in Lexington. For more information, visit www.consignorsandbreeders.com.
