Rexdale, ON â€“ With the end of summer approaching, preparations for the 2007 Canadian-Bred Yearling Sale are well underway. Taking place at the Sales Pavilion at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario, the saleâ€™s Selected session will be held on September 4th at 3 p.m. while the Preferred session will be on September 8th at 4:30 p.m.
With over 430 promising yearlings from more than 130 of North Americaâ€™s leading sires, this yearâ€™s sale will no doubt add to the growing list of money-making Yearling Sales graduates.
â€œThis yearâ€™s line-up is very impressive,â€ explains Julie Coulter, General Manager of the Ontario CTHS. â€œWith yearlings from U.S. sires like Broken Vow, Langfuhr, and Royal Academy, as well as prominent Canadian sires like Ascot Knight, Bold Executive, Bold N’ Flashy, and Peaks and Valleys, weâ€™re expecting a very successful Sale.â€
Featured on the Yearling Sale catalogue cover is 2002 Yearling Sales graduate Financingavailable, a 2006 Sovereign Award winner and recently celebrated millionaire for lifetime earnings. Joining other past millionaire graduates such as A Bit Oâ€™ Gold, Edenwold, and Mobil, Financingavailable represents a big part of the $111 million earned by Yearling Sale graduates since 2000.
Other highlights of this yearâ€™s Sale include airfare rebates to our out-of-Province buyers, free onsite pedigree analysis, and special rates at hotels just minutes from Toronto airport and the Sales pavilion, along with the opportunity to participate in the Ontario Thoroughbred Improvement Program (TIP) worth $9.3 million.
The CTHS will be assisting with the forming of syndicates with potential purchasers through its New Owner Syndicate program. This mentorship program has been formed to assist those wishing to make only a 10% investment in a racehorse in return for 100% input from an experienced mentor and trainer.
