2015 OKC SUMMER SALE POSTS 15 PERCENT JUMP IN MEDIANOklahoma City – The OKC Summer sale saw a huge jump in median sale prices. The 15 percent increase is an exceptional bright spot in a depressed Oklahoma City energy market. The thoroughbred sale Sunday posted returns much like last year’s record setting sale. The average of $8,517 was just shy of the record average $8,863 set last year.“Our market was bolstered by the just announced 10 percent purse increase at Remington Park,” said Sales Manager Terri Carter. The across the board increase became effective when the meet opened Friday.“Maiden Special Weights are running for $42,750. That increases my buyback rate, but that also makes these horses worth more money, “ Carter continued.“Scott Wells and the Chickasaws are doing such a good job. They worked with TRAO to get the purse increase and the improvements to the facility are incredible. Remington is a world class facility and continues to put our state in the national spotlight.” Carter said. Wells is the GM of Remington Park. “Even though these purses make owners want to keep them and run them, we had more horses this year than ever at the $15,000 to $20,000 level,” she said.The buyback rate was 36 percent“Last year set records in every category and this year we held to those numbers, so we couldn’t ask for more than that,” Carter said.Henry Thilmony of Minneapolis, MN, took home the $27,500 sale topper, Hip 59, a Country Day colt out of the Not For Love mare, Love in Paris. Leading consignor Buena Madera prepared the colt for James and Tracy Strachan. Buena Madera had gross sales of $113,700.Mighty Acres took home the second leading consignor title with $98,500 and Eureka Thoroughbreds presented the second highest seller, a $22,000 Shackleford colt out of the Tiznow mare Tizmeanttobe.“This is the ninth year for this sale and we had two of the Oklahoma Champions this year. We had the Champion 2-year-old Zealous Vision and the Champion Sprinter Dancing Diva. We’ve also had two recent Iowa Stallion Stakes winners. We are doing what we set out to do and our horses can compete on the highest levels,” Carter said.DOWNLOAD PDF OF 2015 OKC SUMMER SALE RESULTS
2014 OKC Summer Sale Yearlings, 2-year-olds, Horses of racing age The OKC Summer Sale on August 17 set records in all areas. It was the highest grossing sale with a new record sales topper and the highest average since the sale started in 2007.
Hip 10 a Tiz Wonderful colt out of the Cherokee Run mare Serena Ballerina, topped the sale at$67,000. Shawn Schabel of Independence, Kansas, purchased the Oklahoma-bred colt from Brewster Ranch, agent for Clark O. Brewster.
With a $48,000 price tag, the sale’s second highest seller was Hip 72 a Summer Bird colt out of the Petionville mare Nakayama Jeune.
Like the sales topper the colt went to a buyer who drove south from Kansas to attend the Sunday afternoon sale. Lester Ellenz of Tipton, Kansas, purchased the colt from leading consignor, Mighty Acres, for Center Hills
Mighty Acres and Centers Hills have sold the last two winners of the Iowa Stallion Stakes and they also sold the full sister to this year’s winner on Sunday.
With total sales of $487,450, the sale averaged $8,863 with a buy back rate of 35 percent.
“We had the best crowd, the best horses and the best results in our sales history,” said Sales Manager Terri Carter.
“Our buy back rate is tribute to the incredible racing we have here with maiden special weights running for $35,700. We also have a great stakes schedule and the sale company added a $25,000 bonus to the Clever Trevor Stakes, so some consignors chose to hold on to their horses and take a shot at that.”
Carter said the sale has always been tied to opening weekend at Remington Park and this year it also coincided with the national HBPA meeting in Oklahoma City.
“The atmosphere at the track opening weekend was just incredible,” said Carter. “Scott Wells does such a great job and it sure didn’t hurt that Bryan Hawk who won the $175,000 Governors Cup Saturday night, was shopping Sunday while grinning from ear to ear.”
The average saw a 20 percent increase over last year and the gross was up 23.5 percent. The catalog had 93 with 85 offered on Sunday and 55 sold. The buy back rate of 35 percent was an increase over last years 26 percent.
SUMMER SALE GRADS ELIGIBLE FOR $25,000 BONUS INREMINGTON PARK’S CLEVOR TREVOR STAKESHorses from Carter Sales Company's OKC Summer Sale will be eligible for a $25,000 bonus if they run in the Clever Trevor Stakes at Remington Park.In order to accommodate consignors who wish to take a shot at the bonus money, the entry deadline for the sale has been extended to June 30th.The bonus will be available for the 2014 Clever Trevor, which is set for Friday, Nov. 7, 2014. It is a seven furlong, $100,000 stakes race for two-year-olds. Two-year-olds from the August 17 sale will be eligible as well as yearlings that went through the sales ring in 2013.The bonus is also available in 2015 for the yearlings of this year’s sale and two-year-olds from the 2015 sale.Sales Manager Terri Carter said they are working with TRAO to try to make the bonus rollover in the event the race is not won by an OKC Summer Sale graduate.“Our sale had record increases last year and the quality gets better each year. We wanted to do something to reward the people who work so hard to support racing and breeding here.” Carter said.Officials at Remington Park think the bonus will serve as one more incentive for horses that are targeting the Clever Trevor and also the Springboard Mile, which serves as Remington Park’s prep for the Kentucky Derby.
