New York breeding stock sale canceled


The New York Breeders’ Sales Company has canceled its fall breeding stock sale, citing “complications arising from scheduling.”

The auction initially had been set for Oct. 10 but will now take what a company release called “a one-year hiatus.”

Also taking place in the region in early October is Fasig-Tipton Midlantic’s Oct. 5-6 Eastern fall yearling sale in Timonium, Md.

“It is unfortunate that the sale will not be held this year, but I fully expect we will bring the sale back next year,”

The New York Breeders’ Sales Company launched its fall breeding stock sale in 2003. Last year, the one-day auction grossed $627,900 for 57 horses, yielding an average price of $11,015 and a $4,200 median. The session sold 57 of 147 horses offered. The top price was the $55,000 that West Point Thoroughbreds (Buzz Chace, agent) paid for a weanling City Zip-Capote’s Tune filly.
