Auction Companies

Thoroughbred auctions or “sales” offer a wide selection of horses for public auction. They include yearlings, two-year-olds, weanlings, broodmare prospects, in-foal mares and horses of racing age.

For those interested in racing, sales for two-year-olds in training and horses of racing age are a good source to obtain a racing prospect. Yearling Sales provide an early search for future racehorses. Shop the Mixed Sales and Breeding Stock Sales, generally held in the fall and winter, for mares to build your breeding stock. You may also want to refer to Purchase Options on the Ownership page of OwnerView’s listings for Ownership, State Incentives, Advisors and Consignors will help provide you with information and advice to decide what auctions may be right for you.
