Email

The third annual Goshen Yearling Sale has been scheduled for Sunday, September 10, 2017 at the Mark Ford Training Center in Middletown, NY.

Goshen Yearling Sale president Bob Boni noted, “We are pleased to announce that our consignor list will continue to be led by some of the most accomplished breeders in harness racing, including Hanover Shoe Farms, Winbak Farms, Blue Chip Farms and Cameo Hills Farm.

With our second sale last year, we continued to grow and provide a very necessary venue for a variety of buyers and sellers, and we hope to add to that in 2017.”

Hall of Famer Jim Simpson, President and CEO of Hanover Shoe Farms stated, “We had a good sale in 2016.  There is definitely a need for this sale and we look forward to sending another quality consignment this September.”

The commission structure remains advantageous for breeders as horses selling for $50,000 or more pay just 3%.  Sale prices from $25,000 to $49,900 are charged just 4%, with the base commission set at $500 or 5%.  The entry fee is just $350, making this an attractive choice for New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania eligible colts and fillies.  Entries close May 15.

The sale facility is centrally located within a ninety-minute drive of the major tracks and training centers in the tri-state area, making it an ideal, and a convenient location.

All industry farms and agencies are invited and encouraged to participate in our successful auction, held just outside Goshen's 'Cradle of the Trotter.'  For additional consignment information please call 201-863-2082, or check out our website: GoshenYearlingSale.com
