Depth and diversity reflected in Preferred’s yearling consignment

by Dave Briggs

David Reid is always careful not to highlight particular yearlings his Preferred Equine is selling at any sale because he represents so many clients. But when it comes to this year’s Standardbred Horse Sales Company auction in Harrisburg, PA, he said he’s tremendously pleased with the overall depth of Preferred’s offerings.

“It’s probably one of the deepest consignments we’ve had in years at Harrisburg,” Reid said.

“I’m very happy coming into the sale, both from a pedigree and individual point of view… We have a tremendous consignment across the board in all categories and we’re especially deep in pacing fillies.

“In our pacing consignment, we have Sweet Lous, Stay Hungrys, Captaintreacherous – all the main sires, both colts and fillies.

“We have trotters by Greenshoe, Walner, Muscle Hill and Chapter Seven to lead the way for our strong trotting consignment.”

Preferred’s diversity also extends to jurisdictions.

“In my consignment, we have a very strong representation from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ontario. We don’t have many Ohio-breds, but those four jurisdictions are very strong in my opinion,” Reid said.
