Heritage Place adds yearling session to Thoroughbred sale


Heritage Place in Oklahoma City has cataloged 128 horses to its fourth annual Thoroughbred sale, which will feature a special session for yearlings. The auction begins at 1 p.m. Central on Oct. 4.

There are 65 yearlings cataloged to the sale, which also includes breeding stock and horses of racing age.

Heritage Place moved the date of the auction up by more than two months after previously conducting the sale in December. Spence Kidney, general manager of Heritage Place, said he believes the catalog might be the strongest yet for the young sale. 

“I think the business is much more about quality than numbers at this point, and we are very pleased with the offering we have coming up,” Kidney said in an email. “This should be a fun weekend in Oklahoma City for Thoroughbred breeders and racing enthusiasts.”

Remington Park, the track in Oklahoma City, is racing Thoroughbreds through mid-December.

Catalogs are now available online at Heritageplace.com.

Heritage Place, a premier Quarter Horse auction house, sits on 40 acres. The plant’s 1,000-seat sales auditorium and 640 stalls are housed under one roof, and cover 4 1/2 acres. The facility was built in 1978. Heritage Place is owned by Charles Graham of Elgin, Texas; the Robert W. Moore family of Oklahoma City; and the Bruce Gentry and Robert Gentry families, both of Lubbock, Texas.
