East Rutherford, NJ - Six-year-old trotter Lindy The Great, who won last year's Caesars Trotting Classic and was second in the Allerage Farms Open Trot, brought the top price at Monday's (Jan. 20) Tattersalls Winter Mixed Sale at The Meadowlands, selling for $450,000, while 4-year-old pacer Escapetothebeach was No. 2 on the list, purchased for $250,000. Lindy The Great was acquired by an ownership group put together by trainer Rene Allard. The stallion, by Crazed out of Highscore Kemp, has won 14 of 47 career starts and $649,125. Other top wins include the 2016 Madison County and a division of the Bluegrass Stakes in 2017. He finished second in the 2017 Breeders Crown and third in the Kentucky Futurity. He was most recently trained by Domenico Cecere. "We're happy we got him, it's exciting," Allard said. "Those kinds of horses don't get offered at auctions too often. We're going to be looking forward to the season with him. "I think the horse is kind of coming into his own. He's lightly raced (and) trotters seem to do their best at ages 6, 7, 8. I think we bought him at the right time. He's a gorgeous horse, he's got some pedigree, and he's already shown he can win at a Grand Circuit level." Escapetothebeach, by Somebeachsomewhere out of Shelliscape, has won six of 35 career races and earned $289,571. He was purchased by trainer Virgil Morgan Jr. on behalf of owner Dana Parham. His career victories include the 2018 Kindergarten Classic Series championship. He was trained by Tony Alagna. "I liked the pedigree," Morgan said. "His miles at Yonkers were scary good; (1):51 there, that's a real mile. He raced against the best in the country last year and was competitive. He's a horse that Dana would like to race for a while. We'll sit down and get a game plan for him and map out a schedule. I would imagine the Graduate (Series) is part of that for the 4-year-olds and then we'll try to pick some other spots." Third on the best-sellers list was 4-year-old trotting mare Jezzys Legacy, who sold for $150,000 to agent Beachy Brothers on behalf of undisclosed owners. Jezzys Legacy, by Donato Hanover out of Jezzy, won six of 28 career starts and $164,923. She was trained by Ray Schnittker. "It's a great pedigree, a great family," agent Bobby Beachy said. "The gentlemen buying her want to breed her in Ohio. This group just wants this one (horse). They're excited about the program in Ohio, the money is getting better all the time. The breeders want to step it up." All three of the top sellers were consigned by Preferred Equine. A total of 128 horses and stallion shares sold for a gross of $5.27 million. Last year, a total of 150 horses and stallion shares sold for $4.39 million. For complete sales results, click here. by Ken Weingartner, USTA Media Relations Manager

Tattersalls Sales Co. has announced that entries are now being accepted for the company's annual harness racing Winter Mixed Sale, to be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 20 at the Meadowlands.   The sale, formerly called the January Select Mixed Sale, was renamed in keeping with the format of the company's other Meadowlands mixed auctions held in the spring and summer.   "This is still a select sale, and traditionally it's been by far our biggest and our best," said manager David Reid.   "The owners, trainers and breeders who support this sale and target it every year bring outstanding quality, which makes it an excellent sale across the board... for racehorses, broodmares and stallion shares.   "If the recent marketplace showed us anything, it's that there's still an incredible demand for racehorses and well-bred race fillies and mares. Everyone planning to sell here will have another chance to tap into those big prices."   The Winter Mixed, which draws a large crowd of buyers from the U.S., Canada and abroad, has generated more than $17-million in total sales over the past three years and has averaged at or close to $30,000 each year.   Entries can be directed to one's sales agent, submitted online at, or called in to the sales office at (914) 773-7777.   From the Tattersalls Sales Co.     

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.
