Equine Sales Company has announced that the catalogue for its Open Yearling and Mixed Sale is now online at www.equinesalesofla.com. A total of 143 head have been consigned to the auction in Opelousas, Louisiana. The sale is set for Sunday, October 26, starting at 12 noon.
“This will be our third auction of the year after the successful debut of our 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale in April and the second renewal of our Consignor Select Yearling Sale in September,” said Sales Director Foster Bridewell. “We expect another strong auction in October with a good mix breeding and racing stock with some quality yearlings and weanlings.”
The catalogue is comprised of 37 yearlings, 30 weanlings and 76 broodmares and horses of racing age. More than 50 of the broodmares are reported as being in foal with offspring of El Corredor, Half Ours, Songandaprayer and several other leading Louisiana sires, plus Kentucky stallions More Than Ready, Graydar and Tale of the Cat. The selection of broodmares includes daughters of top stallions such as Elusive Quality, Ghostzapper, Hennessy, Langfuhr, Pulpit and Unbridled’s Song.
Among the yearlings are representatives of the first crop of Interactif, Paddy O’Prado, Tiz the One and Proudinsky (Ger) as well as established sires including Into Mischief, Half Ours, D’Wildcat and Closing Argument. Among the weanlings is a filly from the first crop of four-time Louisiana Horse of the Year Star Guitar.
Equine Sales Company is currently accepting supplements for the sale and a supplemental catalogue will be released closer to the auction.
