Louisiana October sale catalog now online


The catalog for the 2016 Equine Sales Co. of Louisiana open yearling and mixed sale is now available online, with 193 horses on offer.

The auction will take place Sunday, Oct. 16, at 10 a.m. Central in Opelousas, La.

This year’s catalog includes 82 broodmares, 65 yearlings, 39 weanlings, and seven horses of racing age. Supplemental entries are still being taken, with the final number of entries expected to exceed 200.

“The success of our consignor-select yearling sale earlier this month is a positive sign for this upcoming auction, and we expect most of the buyers to be back along with some new faces,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director for Equine Sales Co. “Many of the same leading Louisiana sires, plus many top national sires, that were represented in that sale also have offspring in this auction. We also have nearly 70 in-foal mares on offer.”

Stallions whose first crops of yearlings are represented in the catalog include Data Link, Flashpoint, Flat Out, New Year’s Day, and Power Broker. Those with their first weanlings in the catalog include Atreides, Awesome Patriot, Guilt Trip, and Sum of the Parts. The catalog also features in-foal mares who were part of the first books for Medal Count, Palace, and Sky Kingdom.
