Harness: Rocklamation among those for sale in January


The catalog and racelines for the Meadowlands January Select Mixed Sale will be ready for download Friday on the Tattersalls Sales Co. website, www.tattersallsredmile.com. It will also be posted on the Equineline sales catalog app for the iPad.

As usual, the sale will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 19, in the Meadowlands race paddock. Post time is 11:00 a.m.

The 300 head that are cataloged make up one of the best January sales the company has had in terms of overall quality, according to sale manager David Reid.

The sale features a major reduction of broodmares and racehorses from Jules Siegel’s Fashion Farms, along with a dispersal from William J. Donovan’s Stirling Brook Farms. There are also a large number of stallion shares on offer, 37 in all.

“We’re loaded with talented and well-bred race fillies and mares, which have been quite popular among buyers lately,” Reid said. “There are also lots of high-quality racehorses that people have come to expect  from this sale, including a large number of three-year-old stakes winning colts and geldings who’ll be turning four in January.” he added.

Headlining the “Magnificent Mares” portion of the sale are the 2014 Dan Patch Champion and $2.2-million winner, Rocklamation, and the now three-year-old stakes winning filly who was second in the Breeders Crown, Major Dancer.

Horses and geldings slated to go under the hammer include such stakes stars as Somestarsomewhere, Sometimes Said, Capital Account, Somesizesomestyle and millionaire trotter Spider Blue Chip.
