The catalog and past performances booklet for the Tattersalls Summer Mixed Sale are now available and may be downloaded from the Tattersalls website,, 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 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,, or by calling (914) 773-7777.

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 or by calling the sales company office at (914) 773-7777.   Tattersalls Sales Co

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   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, or called in to the sales office at (914) 773-7777.   Tattersalls Sales Co.

Tattersalls has finalized dates for its next two harness racing auctions at the Meadowlands.   The Spring Mixed Sale is first up, with a date of Sunday, April 28, followed by the Summer Mixed on July 14--the Sunday after Meadowlands Pace night.   Entries are now being accepted for the spring sale.   Those planning to consign horses may enter on the Tattersalls website,, or by calling sale headquarters at (914) 773-7777.   Entries will close Monday, April 8.   "I'm expecting a good turnout of sellers for the Spring Mixed," said sale manager David Reid. "This sale gives horsemen a chance to control their inventory, as their 2-year-olds will soon be moving north."   With all the major tracks open by sale time, and two recent purse increases at the Meadowlands, Reid said the current shortage of racehorses would no doubt put them at a premium.   "This sale creates a market for both buyers and sellers, and I think it's fair trade for both," he added.   Tattersalls Sales Co.

Racehorses, broodmares, stallion shares and prominent breeding farm and harness racing stable reductions are on offer next month as Tattersalls presents its annual January Select Mixed Sale at the Meadowlands. Both the sale catalog and past performances are now available for download at and on the Equineline Sales Catalog app. The print catalog will be mailed next week. The sale, held on its customary date of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 21, includes a broodmare reduction from two-time 'Breeder of the Year' White Birch Farm and a racehorse reduction from Burke Racing, which according to sale manager David Reid, has in the past yielded so many horses that have gone on to continued success for their buyers. This sale is a must for both breeders and racehorse owners, Reid said. There is a pair of million-dollar producing broodmares, along with young mares that have already delivered current stakes horses. Plus, we have 27 stallion shares or breedings to top of the market sires like Cantab Hall, Sweet Lou, Trixton and Southwind Frank. The popular Magnificent Mares portion of the sale is highlighted by the O'Brien Award winning Bettor's Delight mare Bettor Up, along with the $500,000 earner Seviyorum. The latter is a multiple stakes winner who has been race timed in 1:50.4 and finished a close second to Dan Patch Champion Atlanta in the final of the Kentucky Filly Futurity. At the time of cataloging we had 17 horses that won their last starts, including a pair that won impressively just last weekend at the Meadowlands, Bell I No (1:49.1/:26.2) and Mindtrip (1:50.2/:26.3) Reid said. We're now taking supplements, and if anyone would like to join a top group of horses, it's the place to sell. Tattersalls Sales Co.

Time is running out for those considering entering horses in the Meadowlands January Select Mixed Sale, as the deadline for Tattersalls flagship harness racing auction is Monday, Dec. 10 at 9 a.m. Consignors can enter online at or by calling the sales office at (914) 773-7777. The sale will be held on its customary day on the calendar--Martin Luther King Jr. Day--which this year falls on Monday, Jan. 21. "I urge our sellers to try and make the main catalog. Theres a big extra benefit in having their horses in front of potential buyers for a longer period of time," said sale manager David Reid. Last years January sale, the companys largest venue, grossed more than $6.6-million, which represented an increase of 6.5 percent over the previous year. The average of $30,290 was up as well, 12.2 percent over 2017. The sale-topper, Miso Fast, made $250,000, while six others sold for $100,000 or more. One of the largest crowds in sale history was in attendance, with horses sold to a deep bench of buyers from the U.S., Canada and Europe. Reid said recent sales point to the fact that there has been no letup in top prices for quality horses. Top-level racehorses that are ready to drop in the box, along with fashionably-bred fillies with stakes credentials, still top the charts. There are just not enough of those out there to satisfy a continually growing demand." Tattersalls Sales Co.

Not only are there many, but a number of them are extremely significant," Reid said.   Reid said the latest version of updated racelines (current through last Sunday) are posted on the sales company's website, and also on the Equineline app, at the end of the individual catalog pages, starting on page 192.   "This is another of our Meadowlands racehorse sales with something for everyone," Reid said.

  The sale roster, catalog and past performances booklet for the Meadowlands Summer Mixed Sale are now available on the Tattersalls Sales Co. website,   The catalog and racelines are also available for iPad users on the Equineline Sales Catalog app.   Held on the weekend of the Meadowlands Pace on Sunday, July 15, the sale will get underway at noon in the track's race paddock.   The sale, comprised entirely of horses of racing age, has more than 120 in the main catalog, including 21 2-year-olds. "This is the kind of sale where buyers can roll up their sleeves, do their homework, and come away with a perfect horse for wherever they race," said sale manager David Reid.   Reid noted that 16 horses won their last starts on the weekend right before the catalog was published, June 22-25, and that the vast majority in the sale will race right up to auction time.   "There's literally something for everyone, and for those looking for very high-class racehorses we have a number racing in stakes and top condition races, like D'Bomb, Blatantly Best, Fool Me Once and the fast trotter Tuonoblu Rex, to mention just a few," Reid said.   "One thing that's important to point out is that we have a number of fillies in the sale with standout commercial pedigrees, and they're by sires like Muscle Hill and Somebeachsomewhere. Their buyers will get a two-in-one package, a racehorse and potentially outstanding future broodmare," he added.   Supplemental entries to the Summer Mixed will be accepted through Friday, July 6.   From the Tattersalls Sales Co.    

Those planning to sell racehorses at the Meadowlands July 15 Summer Mixed Sale are reminded that entries are now being accepted, and will be until the catalog closes on Monday, June 18.   Consignors may submit entries using the form on the Tattersalls Sales Co. website,, or by calling the sale office at (914) 773-7777.   Last year's Summer Mixed was up more than 50 percent in average from the previous year. The top seller was open trot winner In Secret, who was purchased by Burke Racing and partners for $140,000.   "The July sale is a great time to market racehorses and create cash flow prior to the fall yearling sales," said sale manager David Reid.   "It's also a good time to evaluate one's racing program, and to do some near-term planning. Should I restock for fall racing? Do I focus on yearlings? If that means selling a few, this is the place."   As always, the Summer Mixed will feature racehorses of all ages. But it has also become a go-to venue for those who'd like to sell 2-year-olds.   "Many 2-year-olds will start racing over the next few weeks, and this sale is a great outlet for those willing to test the waters on what could be a very profitable endeavor," Reid said.   "Everyone would agree there's very serious money out there for a high-quality 2-year-old, as number of them are sold privately at this time of year. Why not bring them to auction, and get full value?"   From the Tattersalls Sales Company  

The Meadowlands Spring Mixed Sale, conducted by Tattersalls, is scheduled for Sunday, April 29 in the harness racing track's race paddock.   Entries are now being accepted, and may be sent by using the form on the Tattersalls website,, or by calling the sales company office at (914) 773-7777. The main catalog will close April 6.   In making the announcement, sale manager David Reid said this year's sale is scheduled nearly two weeks earlier than last year, to better coincide with the opening of 2018 race meets at Harrah's Philadelphia, Pocono, Hoosier Park, and others.   "With all the big meets starting up, and purses strong as ever, buyers will be searching high and low for quality racehorses ready to drop in the box. Sellers should be extremely well rewarded if they're willing to step forward with that quality," Reid said.   Last year's Spring Mixed posted the highest average in the sale's history and was led by top-seller Rock N Roll World ($165,000), who went on to win invitationals and compete in FFA classics like the Breeders Crown, Ben Franklin and William Haughton Memorial.   Consignors are reminded that Tattersalls has adjusted its entry deadlines much closer to sale time, to lessen outs and to publish a more accurate and up-to-date main catalog. With that said, Reid urges consignors not to delay in submitting their entries.   Tattersalls Sales Co.  

East Rutherford, NJ --- Ed Telle arrived at Monday’s (Jan. 15) Tattersalls January Select Mixed Harness Racing Sale at the Meadowlands Racetrack with the intentions of buying one horse, Miso Fast. Several hours later, Telle accomplished his goal. Telle purchased the 4-year-old pacing stallion for $250,000, which was the day’s top price. Formerly trained by Ron Burke, Miso Fast has won seven of 36 career races and earned $647,938. Miso Fast’s victories include five divisions of the New York Sire Stakes and an elimination of the Max C. Hempt Memorial. He was second in the 2016 New York Sire Stakes championship as well as the 2017 Empire Breeders Classic. He also was second in a division of the Tattersalls Pace last year. “He’s a gorgeous horse and he’s going to make a nice racehorse for the next four or five years,” Telle said. “I came here to buy him. I’m going to send him to Florida for a couple of months to get him ready and then bring him back up. He’ll go to Ohio and Pennsylvania and then he’ll come out east. “He’s just so consistent. Maybe as a 4-year-old he’ll get a little stronger and be a little better.” Telle, who lives in Ohio and bought Miso Fast for his Winchester Baye Acres, enjoyed success last year with female pacer Safe From Terror. The mare, purchased for $210,000 during the mixed sale portion of the 2015 Standardbred Horse Sale, won 22 of 36 races last season and earned $239,630. Her 22 victories tied for the most in North America. Other successes for Telle included campaigning 2011 Little Brown Jug winner Big Bad John, who earned $1 million in his career. “If you’re going to be in this industry, why not buy the best if you can afford it,” Telle said. “Luckily for me, I’ve had a few good years. “I think if you buy good quality horses, I give them to good trainers, and we do well.” Miso Fast was among six racehorses to sell for at least $130,000 on Monday. Next on the list was Kentucky Futurity champion Snowstorm Hanover at $180,000, followed by female pacer Inverse Hanover at $155,000 and male pacer Art Scene at $150,000. Male trotter New Jersey Viking, at $140,000, and male pacer Ocean Colony, at $130,000, completed the group of six-figure sellers. Snowstorm Hanover, another horse formerly trained by Burke, was purchased by trainer Marcus Melander as agent for overseas buyers. The 4-year-old stallion has won eight of 36 career races and earned $658,761. “He’s a nice horse,” Melander said. “He won the Kentucky Futurity and he was good as a 2-year-old, as well. We’ll see what we can do with him. “We’ll bring him home and see what’s happening. They have a good program (in Europe) for 4-year-olds, so it’s not impossible he would go to Sweden. When he won the Kentucky Futurity, he showed a lot. Hopefully we can do good with him.” Inverse Hanover was purchased by Tom Pollack. She has won five of 20 career races and earned $136,560. Her wins include a division of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes and she finished 2017 by beating a field that included older horses at the Meadowlands. The 4-year-old mare, formerly trained by Richard “Nifty” Norman, will be sent to Indiana with trainer Jeff Cullipher. “I’ve always done pretty well racing mares,” Pollack said. “I just liked she’s got a big motor and a high turn of speed. She went a big trip against older horses, which I like to see that. “She looks like a big-track horse. She will race a lot at Hoosier Park with Jeff Cullipher. I thought she would be a good fit out there. We’ll stake her where she may fit.” In 2016, Pollack purchased female pacer Medusa for $65,000 at the Tattersalls January Select Mixed Sale. She has won nearly $450,000 since then. “We’re willing to spend,” Pollack said. “You have to sometimes to get good horses. Hopefully this will fall into that category.” Below are the top sellers from Monday’s sale.

The supplement catalog and updated past performances for the Meadowlands January Select Mixed Sale are now available on the Tattersalls website, They've also been added to the Equineline Sales Catalog app for the iPad.   The sale gets underway on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 15 at 11 a.m. in the back paddock at the Meadowlands. Breeding stock will sell first, followed by racehorses.   Featured in the supplement are five individual 2018 breedings to Sweet Lou, who ranked second among pacing sires at last fall's yearling sales with an average of more than $60,000.   "When you consider how good the catalog is--and add to that a strong stock market and positive changes in tax laws in regard to equine holdings--I expect commerce next week will be brisk," said sale manager David Reid.   "There's the usual great selection of quality racehorses, but this year, in-foal mares and breedings to top stallions are the co-stars," he added. "I think there's opportunity here for some breeders to upgrade and add star-quality mares to their barns."   Numerous Tattersalls mixed sale graduates have been in the racing spotlight this past year, but perhaps none so much as Propulsion. The 2015 Tattersalls sale grad just won the Prix de Bourgogne in Paris and now heads to the  Prix d'Amerique later this month as one of the favorites to win the classic.   Tattersalls Sales Co.

The catalog and racelines for the Meadowlands January harness racing Select Mixed Sale -- this year, with an emphasis on "mixed"--are now available for download at   The print catalog will be mailed later this week and the Equineline app catalog will be up by this afternoon.   The sale will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 15 in the back paddock at the Meadowlands. The broodmare section kicks off the sale at 11 a.m.   "The January sale has always been called 'the winter racehorse market' and that certainly holds true," said sale manager David Reid. "But this year, within all the categories, this is the strongest sale horse-for-horse we've had in a number of years.   "I think we have the highest-quality mares we've ever cataloged, to go along with some hard-to-find stallion shares and really outstanding short yearlings."   In-foal mares include the complete dispersal of the estate of George F. Hempt, a reduction from William G. Mulligan and mares from White Birch Farm. Featured throughout are mares in foal to Somebeachsomewhere, Always B Miki, Sweet Lou, American Ideal, Cantab Hall, Kadabra, and Trixton.   More than 170 racehorses are cataloged, led by an outstanding group of rising 4-year-olds like Bluegrass and Simcoe winner Art Scene, Kentucky Futurity winner Snowstorm Hanover and multiple stakes winner Miso Fast.   Stakes winning racemares are part of that racehorse section, and according to Reid, feature many that carry top commercial pedigrees and could be purchased to race and later breed.   Tattersalls Sale Co.
