The catalog for the Indiana Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association Fall Mixed Sale is now online and printed copies will be mailing out shortly, ITOBA announced Wednesday. The auction will be held Saturday, Oct. 16, at 1 p.m. at the receiving barn at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino. The auction will be managed by Duane Swingley Auctioneers.
A total of 78 weanlings, yearlings, 2-year-olds and broodmares have been consigned to the sale.
“There has never been a better time to get involved in Indiana racing and breeding,” said ITOBA President Tom Mosley. “The 2021 stakes program at Indiana Grand is incredible with a total of 28 Indiana-bred and/or Indiana-sired stakes with a minimum purse of $100,000, and in 2022 we will have even richer races with two stakes at $200,000 and two others at $250,000. If you want to capitalize on the lucrative Indiana program, this sale is the best place to find racing or breeding stock.”
ITOBA has also launched a new bonus program that awards a total of $10,000 based on the highest money-earning Indiana-bred or -sired 2-year-old at Indiana Grand in 2022 that sells at the sale. The consignor and purchaser will be awarded $5,000 apiece.
