SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (Wednesday, January 24, 2024) — New York Thoroughbred Breeders, Inc. (NYTB) will conduct its annual Stallion Season Auction from Tuesday, February 6th to Thursday, February 8th on Wanamakers.com.
The annual auction raises funds that allow the NYTB to carry on its two-fold mission of promoting New York breeding and racing and protecting the welfare of industry stakeholders.
The auction has routinely attracted donated seasons from farms in the Empire State and Kentucky, including McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds, Sequel New York, Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Stallions, Rockridge Stud, Coolmore America, Lane’s End, Darley America, Darby Dan Farm, and additional farms.
“We’re extremely proud of the widespread participation and diverse quality of stallions standing in New York state, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and beyond for breeders to appropriately match their mare,” said New York Thoroughbred Breeders Executive Director Najja Thompson.
New York-bred program stakeholders receive more than $60 million distributed in purse money, breeding incentives, and awards for New York-breds eligible to compete in more than 600 New York-bred races run annually on the New York Racing Association circuit and Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack.
