Wanamaker's, the online Thoroughbred auction site, will host the first-ever Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association online auction Oct. 28. The sale will be open to Pennsylvania-bred weanlings, yearlings, and racehorses as well as broodmares and broodmare prospects owned by PHBA members.
“We are excited to partner with PHBA for their first online auction of PA-breds and utilize the platform in a way that can make state-bred horses more accessible,” said Wanamaker's co-founder Liza Hendriks. “We will maintain our normal monthly sales while adding in feature sales.”
PHBA Executive Secretary Brian Sanfratello said, “PA-breds have made their mark both in Pennsylvania and across the country. We wanted to give our breeders an opportunity to have a venue to showcase their horses. With owner bonuses up to 40% and breeder awards up to 50% we're sure buyers will take a look at our program.”
Entries for the sale will close Oct. 19 and the catalogue will be released the following day. Horses will sell Oct. 28. The entry fee for the auction will be discounted to $150 and commissions will remain at 5% on sales and 0% on RNAs.
