Texas Winter Mixed Sale Attracts Better Than 125 Horses


Lone Star Park

The Texas Winter Mixed Sale, staged in partnership by the Texas Thoroughbred Association and Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie, has attracted more than 125 entries. The first standalone Texas Winter Mixed Sale since 2011 will take place Sunday, Dec. 6, at 1 p.m. at the sales pavilion located on the Lone Star backstretch.

“Because of increased purses and breeding incentives in Texas, and the overall strength of racing in the Southwest region, we saw the need to bring this sale back,” said Tim Boyce, sales director. “Even though we knew there would be demand from consignors and buyers, we didn't anticipate this many entries or the interest we've already seen from potential buyers. That's a good sign for how things are growing in this region.”

The sale will kick off with broodmares followed by weanlings, yearlings and horses of racing age. As it was for the Texas Summer Yearling Sale this past August, internet bidding will also be available for the Mixed Sale.
