FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


134 Two-Year-Olds cataloged for the John Franks Memorial Sale at Evangeline Downs


Opelousas, Louisiana-Stemmans Inc. and Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino officials announced that 134 juveniles, the same amount as in 2011 have been cataloged for the John Franks Memorial Two-Year-Old in Training Sale at Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino. The sale, now in its tenth year is scheduled for Sunday, March 25, beginning at 10:00 a.m. CT and will be held in the Evangeline Downs Event Center which is located directly adjacent to the racing paddock. In addition, there will be a Preview Gallop Show on Saturday, March 24, which will begin at Noon Central time. Both the Sale and the Preview Gallop Show are free and open to the public.


Charlotte Stemmans Clavier, President of Stemmans, Inc., Administrator for the Sale, stated "This sale has become a must attend for horsemen who not only race here in South-Central Louisiana but throughout Louisiana and the neighboring states. Clavier added "This year's catalog will once again feature predominately registered Louisiana-bred horses including eight offspring sired by Richter Scale and Toolightoquit as well as some youngsters that were bred in both Kentucky and Florida."


Clavier also stated "Last year's sale featured a total of 113 two-year-olds after 21 were withdrawn that sold for a total of $901,500.00 an average of $7,978.00. With what we feel is a very attractive catalog for buyers to choose from, we are optimistic of surpassing those totals."


As in past years, the sale, named for the late Eclipse Award winning wwner/breeder offers a pair of $60,000 races to be held at Evangeline Downs that are restricted to two-year-olds who pass through the sales ring. The two events, previously contested in late July, will now be held on Saturday, September 8th and run at the distance of 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track.
