A catalogue featuring 186 horses has been released for the 2023 Texas 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale, the highest number cataloged for a 2-year-old sale in Texas Thoroughbred Association (TTA) sales history. The sale will be held Apr. 5 at Lone Star Park with a breeze show scheduled for Apr. 3.
Last year’s edition of the sale was topped by Free Drop Maddy (Free Drop Billy), who was consigned by Carl Deville and brought $200,000 from Mansfield Racing. The now-sophomore has since won four black-type events, including the Texas Thoroughbred Association Futurity at Lone Star and the Louisiana Champions Day Lassie S. at Fair Grounds.
“This is an impressive catalog for our 2023 2-year-old sale,” TTA Sales Director Foster Bridewell said. “It’s deep, it’s full of pedigree and stallion power, and we’re proud to offer the depth and quality come April that hasn’t been seen around here in a decade.”
Bridewell continued: “The commitment of our consignors, breeders, and owners to bring such quality athletes and pedigrees to our sale is unmatched.”
The catalogue is highlighted by a number of leading sires, including Bernardini, Bolt d’Oro, City of Light, Classic Empire, Good Magic, Justify, Kantharos, Malibu Moon, Midshipman, Munnings, and Practical Joke, as well as a number of first-crop stallions. Regional stallions are also represented, including leading Texas stallion Bradester and Louisiana’s El Deal.
Paper catalogs will be available shortly. Visit ttasales.com to view the interactive catalogue, a full downloadable catalogue, and expected supplements.
