2011 Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Yearling Sale Event Set For September 27
 
(New Orleans, La.) - The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Annual Yearling Sale has catalogued 243 thoroughbred horses. The sale is set for 10:00 a.m. at the Ike Hamilton Center in West Monroe, Louisiana on September 27.
 
An added enticement for breeders and owners to sell their yearlings through the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Annual Yearling Sale is that all accredited Louisiana bred foals auctioned in this sale are eligible to be nominated to either the A.L. "Red" Erwin Memorial Stakes ($150,000 guaranteed for sales horses, colts and geldings) or the Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes ($150,000 guaranteed for sales horses, fillies).
 
Only horses sold in the sale are eligible for the Bayou State Bonus. Any accredited Louisiana bred yearling that passes through the sales ring this year and goes on to win a series of races will receive a bonus of $100,000 in earnings. For fillies, the races are the Louisiana Champions Day Lassie, the Crescent City Oaks and the Elge Rasberry. For colts and geldings, the races are the Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile, the Crescent City Derby and the A.L. Erwin.
 
"The catalogue is available in several forms," said Tom Early, sale manager and CEO for the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association. "In addition to mailing the catalogue, our website has an interactive catalogue and a version that can be downloaded."
 
There is an interactive sales catalogue online at: http://louisianabred.com/2011-yearling-sale/. Prospective buyers can click on the hip number to download a PDF of the sales horses or sort the columns by clicking on the column header: name, sire, dam, consigner and buyer. Buyers and sales prices will be updated September 28, 2010.
 
“Louisiana breeders have continually been upgrading their stock,” said Early. “Yearlings offered in this sale have topnotch pedigrees. The majority of yearlings here are Louisiana-bred with the extra advantage of purse supplements, and over $5.5 million in Louisiana-bred stakes races run in 2010 alone.”
 
The sale can be viewed via a web-cast on the louisianabred.com website beginning at 10:00 CT. For more information call (800) 772-1195.
