The Texas Thoroughbred Association is pleased to announce that a mixed sale session has been added to the Summer Yearling Sale to be conducted on August 29 at Lone Star Park. This will mark the second sale held by the TTA, which in April held its first 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale. Fasig-Tipton formerly managed the Texas sales in partnership with the TTA and Lone Star Park.
“We’ve already seen strong interest from around the region since we announced the yearling sale, and the addition of a mixed session should only increase participation from both buyers and consignors,” said TTA Executive Director Mary Ruyle. “We are thrilled to be working with Lone Star Park on this venture and to have Tim Boyce directing our sales. With a central location in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and a top-notch sales pavilion at Lone Star Park, we expect our sales to remain a leader in the Southwest.”
The 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale posted positive results with the average increasing more than 5 percent compared to the last auction held by Fasig-Tipton and buy-backs dropping to 19.7 percent from 33.3 percent.
The entry deadline for both the yearling and mixed sale sessions is June 6. The TTA has mailed out consignment forms, and they are also available on a new website dedicated to the TTA’s sales at www.ttasales.com.
