Stall Street Journal – Entry #32

The statistics made it perfectly clear. The 2013 Saratoga Sales were a tremendous success. Everything from the ambience, weather, foot traffic, and gorgeous horses to the prices, buy back rate, new purchasers and overall respect and appreciation for the New York bred demonstrated that this is (finally) a very healthy, vigorous market and a good time for New York breeders and horsemen alike.

Our team did an outstanding job with all the preparation, as the entire consignment was well received. The following provides a list of our results:
