Active, quality racehorses dominate January Select Mixed Sale catalog

If you are in the market for a quality racehorse, Monday’s January Select Mixed Sale in the paddock at the Meadowlands Racetrack will provide plenty of options.

“Last week, there were over 130 horses that raced over a four-day span. As of this morning, there are over 80 horses in to go this weekend,” sale general manager David Reid said Thursday morning. “It’s probably the most activity from a racehorse point of view that we’ve had in the last number of years that I can remember.”

The Jan. 18 sale on the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday will see some 270 head go through the ring in the paddock of the East Rutherford, NJ track beginning at 11 a.m. with online catalogs available here.

“Come by the stalls, look at the updated racelines and listen for important announcements from the stand,” Reid said. “The majority of the horses will be available starting Sunday. Some of the horses racing on Sunday will be available on Monday morning.”
