Louisiana Thoroughbred Yearling Sale Expanded to Two Days Due To Overwhelming
Number Of Consignments


(New Orleans, La.) - It appears that the Louisiana thoroughbred business is continuing to grow despite hard economic times. The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana announced today that due to overwhelming support for its yearling sale, the event would be extended to a two-day sale.

“The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana is in existence to provide the breeders of Louisiana a viable and professionally operated venue to sell the horses they breed,” said Tom Early, CEO for the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association and sales coordinator for The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana. “After numerous discussions we determined that limiting the number of yearlings sold would be detrimental to our cause.”

The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Annual Yearling Sale will now be held on the original date of September 28, 2009 as well as September 29, 2009. The sale will be held at the Ike Hamilton Center in West Monroe, Louisiana. Once the total number of entrants is determined the sale then will be split equally between the days.

Last year the sales company reported 62% increase in overall revenue and a 46% average price increase over the 2007 sale. “We believe that the success of last year’s sale and our breeders’ incentive program are contributing to the large number of yearlings being entered in our sale,” said Early.
