(New Orleans, La.) - The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana (BSCOL) announced that 220 hips have been cataloged for the 2015 Annual Yearling Sale set for a start of 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, La.

Tim Boyce, sales director of the BSCOL, believes this sale has become the outstanding sale of the region. “This sale has ascended from the leading Louisiana Yearling Sale to the strongest Southwest Regional Sale,” states Boyce.  “With six states represented, I feel buyers from all over will be attending as the pedigrees are strong.  I’ve already received calls for catalogs, which indicates the heightened interest in the sale. When buyers get their books they will be even more pleased.”

Ninety-six stallions are represented with 36 consignors. “The sire power this year is unbelievable” said Roger Heitzmann, secretary/treasurer of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (LTBA). “Inside our catalog, buyers will find yearlings by Archarcharch, Broken Vow, Eskendereya, Into Mischief, The Factor, Tale of the Cat, and Warrior’s Reward. Top Louisiana stallions including Custom For Carlos, Forefathers, Half Ours, Songandaprayer, and Yankee Gentleman along with regional sire leaders Too Much Bling and Grasshopper will give buyers ample opportunities to find a horse for any program. Tim has done an outstanding job in putting our sale together in his first year at the helm and he intends to have catalogs in hand for distribution at the various sales around the country.”

If you would like a catalog mailed to you, contact the LTBA at 1-800-772-1195. A PDF and print ready copy of the catalog is available for download here or viewable online here. In addition, the catalog is available at EquineLine via the app for the iPad. The sale can be viewed via a webcast on louisianabred.com beginning at 11:00 a.m. the day of the sale.

The BSCOL would also like to remind all buyers that any Louisiana Bred that passes through the sales ring at the 2015 Annual Yearling Sale is eligible to race in the A.L. “Red” Erwin Memorial Stakes or the Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes which are currently run at Louisiana Downs in the late summer or early fall of their 3YO year. The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Inc. (BSCOL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (LTBA).
