(New Orleans, La.) - The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana (BSCOL) announces 220 hips have been cataloged for their 2015 Annual Yearling Sale, set for a start at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, La.
 
Tim Boyce, sales director of the BSCOL, believes this sale has become the outstanding sale of the region. “This sale has ascended from the leading Louisiana Yearling Sale to the strongest Southwest Regional Sale,” states Boyce.  “With six states represented I feel buyers from all over will be attending as the pedigrees are strong.  I’ve already received calls for cataloges, which indicates the heightened interest in the sale. When buyers get their books they will be even more pleased”.
 
Ninety-six stallions are represented with 36 consignors. “The sire power this year is unbelievable” said Roger Heitzmann, secretary/treasurer of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association (LTBA). “Inside our catalog, buyers will find yearlings by Archarcharch, Broken Vow, Eskendereya, Into Mischief, The Factor, Tale of the Cat, and Warrior’s Reward. Top Louisiana stallions including Custom For Carlos, Forefathers, Half Ours, Songandaprayer, and Yankee Gentleman along with regional sire leaders Too Much Bling and Grasshopper will give buyers ample opportunities to find a horse for any program.. Tim has done an outstanding job in putting our sale together in his first year at the helm and he intends to have catalogs in hand for distribution at the various sales around the country.”
 
If you would like a catalog mailed to you contact the LTBA at 1-800-772-1195. A copy of the catalog will be available for download soon.

BSCOL Hires Boyce as 2015 Yearling Sales Director

May 11, 2015

The Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana (BSCOL), a subsidiary of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association, today announced the hiring of Tim Boyce as Sales Director for their 2015 Yearling Sale. The sale will be held Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, Louisiana. Tim comes to the BSCOL from Fasig-Tipton Sales where he was the Sales Director for their Texas Sales the last 19 years.

As the Sales Director, Tim will head the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana Annual Yearling Sale. This sale has been in operation since 1988 and serves as the leading outlet for Louisiana Breeders to bring their yearlings to market. Since its start, the BSCOL has continued to show growth in numbers and marked improvement in bloodlines. Yearlings bred in states other than Louisiana have done quite well in recent years as well, making this sale a leader in the Southwest Market. “We want to build upon what we have in place, and we believe we have the man to do just that,” said Brett Brinkman, President of the Breeders Sales Company of Louisiana. “Tim has a lot of experience at doing what we are asking him to do. That is to produce a quality, well managed, sale.”

All Louisiana breds that that pass through the sales ring are eligible for either the Elge Rasberry Memorial Stakes, or the A.L. “Red” Erwin Memorial Stakes to be run in 2017.

Tom Early, President of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association, believes this is a shot in the arm for our association. “We always strive to do the best that we can. There are members of this association who insist that we have this sale, as it is is the best way to attract buyers from all over the United States.  Having Tim on board will help our sale tremendously.”

Consignors Contracts have recently been mailed. If you did not receive a contract you may get one online at www.louisianabred.com or by contacting the office of the LTBA at 800-772-1195.
