Equine Sales Company today announced that its Consignor Select Yearling Sale will be held this year on Wednesday, September 2. This will be the third renewal of the annual sale in Opelousas, Louisiana. Last year’s auction posted gross receipts of nearly $1.8 million to mark the highest amount ever recorded by the sale company.
“We think this is an ideal date for horsemen in Louisiana, the surrounding region and around the country,” said Sales Director Foster Bridewell. “Buyers and consignors from Florida should have an easy time getting here after the sale concludes there, and those planning to head to Kentucky after our sale will have plenty of time for that trip. We held our first yearling auction in 2012 and added the select format in 2013, and it has continued to grow each year.”
Prior to the September auction, Equine Sales Company will hold a 2-year-olds in training and race age horse sale on April 27. An open yearling and mixed sale will be offered in the fall.
