Texas QHA Yearling Sale
Texas QHA Yearling Sale
The Texas Quarter Horse Association has announced a total of 357 Accredited Texas-Bred yearlings have been cataloged for its 25th Annual TQHA Yearling Sale that is being held July 29-30 at the Freeman Expo-Hall in San Antonio, Texas.
This is an increase of 106 horses from the highly successful and record-setting 2021 sale that saw an average sale price of $23,684. All yearlings passing through the sale ring will be eligible for the 2023, $200,000-added TQHA Sale Futurity.
This year’s sale again offers sons and daughters of many of the top sires in the Quarter Horse industry from many of the leading Texas breeders.
“A lot of our consignors from previous years that put five or six horses in the sale have increased to eight or 10," said TQHA Director of Racing Scott Sherwood. "Consignors that put in 10 or so in the past put in 13 or more this year. There are also some new consigners as well as a some that have returned to our sale again after missing it for a few years. We are very pleased with the numbers and quality of the horses we are seeing consigned in this year's sale.”
Returning for 2022 will be the popular free consigners and buyers BBQ that will be held Thursday evening, July 28, beginning at 4 p.m. Sale start times both days will be 10:30 a.m.
Catalogs will be available the first week of July with the online catalog being available on the TQHA.com website by June 15. Online bidding will again be available. For information and to sign up for online bidding go to www.superiorclicktobid.com.
In other TQHA sale news, beginning in 2023 an additional stakes race for 3-year-olds that passed through the TQHA yearling sale will be held on “Summer Showdown Night” which is held annually on the Friday evening after the first day of the sale. This yet-to-be-named stakes race will be a $50,000-added event for 3-year-olds that passed through the 2021 TQHA Yearling Sale and will be run at a distance of 400 yards. Preference will be given to the highest money earners (there will be no trials). More details on this race will be released at a later date. The plan is to continue this race annually, so yearlings passing through the 2022 sale will be eligible for the 2024 edition.
