OKC Summer Sale Set for August 17

Record increases at the 2013 OKC Summer Sale have sale officials preparing for an increase in entries for the 2014 sale set for August 17 at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds.

“With a 41 percent increase in average last year we are already getting entries. Consignors are planning earlier and that is always a good sign,” Sales Manager Terri Carter said.

“It helps that racing is so strong in Oklahoma and with Fasig-Tipton moving their Texas August sale to October, we are getting more interest earlier this year,” Carter continued.

The first yearling sale for the southwest always follows opening weekend at Remington Park, making it a whole weekend event as racing gets underway.

For the second year there will be a session for horses of racing age in addition to the session for select yearlings.

Entry forms are available on line at www.cartersalesco.com. They are due June 10.
