Edited press release
A unique and innovative Select Foal-In-Utero Sale will be held at Ruidoso Downs on Saturday, August 19, the weekend of the trials for the All American Futurity (G1) and All American Derby (G1).
According to a press release distributed by the racetrack, "the sale will offer only the highest quality, hand-selected embryos. The finest breeding in Quarter Horse racing will be represented in this limited number of embryos."
“We will select only the embryos from the premier blue-hen mares by the leading sires and offer them in a select sale format,” said sale manager Lowell Neumayer. “The established success of embryo transfers in Quarter Horse racing points to the need to introduce this exciting new sale concept. It offers our sellers and buyers an additional option for success in their breeding and racing operations. It’s a win-win situation.”
Further details will be announced, and entry blanks will be available in late March. The entry deadline is May 15.
