Texas Summer Yearling Sale Catalog Available; HORA Session, Online Bidding to Be Offered


Lone Star Park

A catalog of 175 head is now online for the Texas Summer Yearling and Horses of Racing Age Sale, set for Aug. 24 at 12 p.m. CDT at Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie. Sponsored by the Texas Thoroughbred Association and Lone Star Park, the sale will welcome bidders on site with enhanced safety protocols and for the first time will also offer live online bidding for those who cannot attend in person. Online Bidders must be registered at one week before the sale, no later than 12 noon Aug. 17.

“We had to cancel our 2-year-old sale due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we've been working since then to ensure we are able to conduct this sale because of its importance to the region,” said Mary Ruyle, executive director of the TTA. “We normally wouldn't have a horses of racing age session at this sale, but we are happy to offer that this year to fill the needs of consignors and buyers. The HORA section is quite impressive.”

The sale will kick off with a horses of racing age session, including 2-year-olds in training, and will be followed by a yearling session that includes 151 head. The online catalog and more information are available at www.ttasales.com.
