The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (LTBA) and Equine Sales of Louisiana on Tuesday proudly announce a mutual agreement with the purpose of encouraging and supporting the sale, purchase, and racing opportunities for Louisiana Thoroughbred horse owners, breeders, trainers and potential buyers in the state of Louisiana.
The LTBA has agreed to suspend the operation of the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana’s Annual Yearling Sale for a period of five years. During this period, the LTBA will assist in the advertising and information gathering and provide a full endorsement of the Equine Sales of Louisiana.
“The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association and its members are the number one priority here. Moving forward as a unified group will only solidify the future of the industry in Louisiana,” said Tom Early, president of the LTBA.
Gary Johnson, president of Equine Sales of Louisiana, was equally pleased, “Horsemen working together for a common goal is always what’s best for business in Louisiana. The agreement to work together to provide a Yearling sale that everyone can be proud of is what’s best for the horsemen.”
