(New Orleans, La.) – The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana has retained Daren English to serve as sales director for its 2013 annual yearling sale. The sale will be held, Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, Louisiana.
 
English has 30 plus years in the equine sales business. He attended Oklahoma State University and earned a degree in Animal Science Livestock Merchandising. He worked for the national and top ranked Fasig Tipton sales company 15 years. He was stable manager, recruited buyers and horses for sales and inspected sales horses. He also worked with the Texas Thoroughbred Association as stable manager and recruited horses for those sales.
 
“Our annual yearling sale is conducted on behalf of our members,” said Roger Heitzmann, secretary/treasurer for the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association. “Last year’s sale was one of our most successful sales and the addition of Daren to our team helps us recruit top quality yearlings as well as successful buyers for our sale.”
 
All accredited Louisiana bred foals of 2012 auctioned in this sale are eligible for a Bayou State Bonus. Any such colt/gelding sold in this sale winning the 2014 Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile, the 2015 Crescent City Derby, and the 2015 A.L. “Red” Erwin Memorial Stakes will receive a $100,000 bonus at the completion of the final race. Any such filly sold in this sale winning the 2014 Louisiana Champions Day Lassie, the 2015 Crescent City Oaks, and the 2015 Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes will receive a $100,000 bonus at the official completion of the final race.
 
The bonus paid will be added to the earnings of the winning horse and paid to the owner of the horse at that time after the official completion of the final race.
 
“Our goal is to increase the value of the Louisiana bred for our breeders,” said Heitzmann. “Our number one purpose is to assist our members and breeders reap rewards for their investment and hard work in producing Louisiana breds.”
 
“The buyer response is very positive,” said Daren English. “Several pin hookers and trainers have already said they will be at the sale in West Monroe.”
 
The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana mails the catalogue and their website will have an interactive catalogue and a PDF version that can be downloaded once the consignments are complete.
 
The sale will be web-cast on the website. For more information call (800) 772-1195. The consignor contract can be downloaded here.  Entries close June 10, 2013
