The catalog and past performances booklet for the Tattersalls Summer Mixed Sale are now available and may be downloaded from the Tattersalls website, tattersallsredmile.com, or by using the Equineline Sales Catalog app.   The sale will be the final attraction of Meadowlands Pace weekend, as it will get underway in the track's race paddock at 12 noon on Sunday, July 14.   It is exclusively a "horses of racing age" sale with 80-plus head cataloged, not including expected supplemental entries. Nearly all sale horses are currently racing and 18 horses in the book--nearly a quarter of the catalog--finished first or second in their last start.   "The sale has a significant amount of quality, thanks to owners like Ron Burke and partners who are selling a dozen in their annual reduction, primarily to make room for yearlings," said manager David Reid.   "That creates a bonus for buyers, as there are some top week-in and week-out raceway horses in the sale that can be money makers in any jurisdiction."   Some that Reid pointed out include the 3-year-olds JK American Beauty and Priceless Beach. The former was a last-out winner of a NYSS 3YO Filly Pace at Buffalo and the latter has won three in a row at Woodbine plus an OSS Grassroots at Flamboro.   Top-class older horses spotlighted include double millionaire Mach It So, who has been racing on the Open at Yonkers; Fashionwoodchopper, who knocked heads with Atlanta and Six Pack last fall; and Call For Justice and Elysium Lindy, both winners of their last two starts.   Entries for the supplemental catalog are now being accepted. Those wishing to enter may do so online at tattersallsredmile.com or by calling (914) 773-7777.     Tattersalls Sales Co

Tattersalls Sales Co. reminds harness racing horsemen and women that the catalog for the Summer Mixed Sale is ready to close, so entries should be submitted to the sales company or with one’s agent as soon as possible. The sale will be conducted at the Meadowlands on July 14, the Sunday following the track’s premier night of racing that includes the Meadowlands Pace and seven other major stakes. “With this being the last sale of the year at the Meadowlands, I’ve had a lot of interest not only from those with interest in selling, but also from buyers who are making plans to replenish their stables for the fall meets,” said sale manager David Reid. The Summer Mixed will feature horses of racing age, from 2-year-olds to older performers, and as Reid points out, “anything racing with current success always gets the most attention. Buyers are eager for horses to drop in the entry box the following week.” The sale has traditionally been successful in recruiting mid- to upper-level racehorses, thanks in part to owners and trainers reducing numbers to create cash flow and make way for fall yearling purchases. “Just like with real estate, it’s a seller’s market right now,” Reid said. “But buyers are willing to step up and pay for the right house and the right horse.” Horse may be entered on the Tattersalls website, tattersallsredmile.com, or by calling (914) 773-7777. For more information contact Tattersalls at (914) 773-7777 or email tattersallssale@gmail.com. Tattersalls Sales Co.

Summer Mixed entries now accepted Entries are now being accepted for the Tattersalls Summer Mixed Sale, to be held at the Meadowlands on Sunday, July 14. Long known as a sale of quality racehorses, it will feature 2-year-olds that are just getting started as well as 3-year-olds and older horses. The sale will add an exclamation point to one of the biggest weekends of the year at the Meadowlands. It follows a night of racing that is highlighted by the Meadowlands Pace Final and seven other major stakes, including the Stanley Dancer Memorial, Hambletonian Maturity, Del Miller and Mistletoe Shalee. “The Meadowlands takes center stage that weekend, and this sale always draws a big crowd of buyers who come in for both the racing and the sale,” said Tattersalls manager David Reid. “For sellers, the Summer Mixed offers a chance to reduce inventory and raise capital before fall yearling purchases. And with the nonstop demand for racehorses in every jurisdiction, if you bring a standout horse to this sale, you’ll likely make more than you would ever expect.” Last year’s Tattersalls Summer Mixed was up in both average and gross, with receipts of $3.1-million adding up to a 24 percent increase from the previous year. Those planning to enter can do so online at tattersallsredmile.com or by calling the sales company office at (914) 773-7777.   Tattersalls Sales Co

Horsemen flooded to the Champions Center in Springfield, Ohio on May 14, seeking harness racing racehorses and breeding stock among the nearly 400 catalogued horses. The sale was virtually tied with last year as the best Spring Sale in its 56 year history with a lot of happy sellers, and buyers that were grateful to get horses to stock their stables. Burke Racing Stable brought an especially strong consignment that included five of the top ten sellers. Leading the way at $65,000 was consistent Preferred pacer Arthur Pendragon. Mark Wright of Frankfort Kentucky had the winning bid on the handsome son of Dragon Again. Next in line was solid conditioned pacer Cheese Melt fresh off a 1:51.2h win at Northfield Park. Fred Linz of Indiana signed the ticket for the 4-yr-old son of Betterthancheddar for $62,000. Other heavy hitters in the Burke consignment were conditioned pacers Reagans Avenger and Aleppo Hanover purchased by Rick Bucci for $42,000 and $32,000 respectively along with Fordham Sixty Two who was picked up for $35,000 by Allard Racing. The consistent young trotter Lion King AS from the Ruddick Stables also went to Allard Racing on a $37,000 bid. A potential story in the making was the purchase of Indiana Sires Stakes eligible Mr Bigly by 15-yr-old Breana Carsey (of Ohio Champion MJB Gotta Have Faith fame) and her dad Brian for $47,000. The precocious son of Always A Virgin came from the very nice Emerald Highlands Farm consignment that also featured the competitive 4-yr-old conditioned mare McPansy purchased by A Piece of Racing for $40,000. The Summer Blooded Horse Sale will be held Tuesday and Wednesday Aug. 27-28. This sale includes a black type yearling session in addition to several hundred racehorses.

Citing a lack of entries, the Tattersalls Spring Mixed Sale at the Meadowlands, originally scheduled for April 28, has been cancelled. “Although there were horses entered from a few of the major racing stables, unfortunately there weren’t enough overall to justify conducting the sale,” said manager David Reid. “We tacked this sale onto our calendar to offer a market for this time of year--if it was needed--but most horsemen we spoke with said they were planning to wait until the Summer Mixed to sell. Horses will be in the middle of their racing seasons by that time, and owners and trainers can plan accordingly to sell and raise capital for the fall yearling sales.” The Tattersalls Summer Mixed Sale at the Meadowlands will be held on Sunday, July 14, the day after the Meadowlands Pace. That sale will include 2-year-olds and older racehorses. For information about the Summer Mixed and other Tattersalls sales, visit tattersallsredmile.com.   Tattersalls Sales Co

Those planning to consign horses to the Tattersalls Spring Mixed Sale have until Monday, April 8 to do so, as the catalog will close at the end of that business day.   The sale is scheduled to be held on Sunday, April 28 in the Meadowlands race paddock.   "Most of the racetracks with spring and summer meets are now open, and the amount of claims everywhere gives you an idea of the incredible demand there is for racehorses," said Tattersalls manager David Reid.   "A quality racehorse at this sale is going to get a lot of looks, a lot of attention and a lot of action. It's still a seller's market and sellers should expect to be well-rewarded," he added.   Entries can be directed to one's sales agent, submitted online at tattersallsredmile.com, or called in to the sales office at (914) 773-7777.   Tattersalls Sales Co.
