ttagenericThe Texas Thoroughbred Association has announced that it will hold a yearling auction on August 29 at Lone Star Park near Dallas. The announcement comes on the heels of a successful Texas 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale in April. Like the 2-year-old sale, the yearling sale will take the place of the auction formerly operated in partnership with Fasig-Tipton.

“The TTA is committed to advancing the Texas racing and breeding industry, and part of that commitment includes giving horsemen a venue to buy and sell horses in this state,” said TTA Executive Director Mary Ruyle. “In advance of this decision, we found significant interest from Texas breeders with yearlings to consign, and with the central location and quality facility at Lone Star we also expect to attract quality consignments from around the region. We were lucky to have Tim Boyce on board to manage this sale for us, and he will do the same for the yearling sale.”
