January Mixed Sale closes Monday

Tattersalls Sales Co. reminds horsemen that entries for the main catalog for the Meadowlands January Select Mixed Sale will close Monday, Dec. 5.
The popular winter sale will be held in the back paddock at the Meadowlands on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 16.
Sale manager David Reid said that despite the racehorse population not being what it used to be, the numbers for the mixed sales that are held at the Meadowlands have continued to stay strong, and he expects the January sale to hold true to form.

"There are two ways to look at the shortage of racehorses," he said. "On the one hand, there are plenty of racing opportunities and purses are strong, so many find it hard to part with a good horse.

"But on the other hand, that smaller population of racehorses has sent demand through the roof when a good one does go to auction. Nearly every horse that sells these days--that's competitive and winning--brings every penny it's worth, and many times a whole lot more."

With breeding season just around the corner, the sale has also become a target for those selling race fillies, in-foal broodmares and stallion shares.

"Our ‘Magnificent Mares' section has really picked again recently, and we expect that trend to continue," Reid said. "With the yearling market like it was this last fall, there's big money to be made selling high-end fillies and mares." (Tattersalls Sales Co.)
