The new Meadowlands Spring Mixed Sale gets underway this Sunday (May 18) at noon, and all systems are set to go, according to sale manager David Reid.

This year--and in years to come--the sale will feature 2-year-olds in training, and 26 freshman trotters and pacers are in the main catalog and supplement. Nearly 100 3-year-old and older racehorses will also go under the auctioneer’s hammer.
The sale catalog and updated racelines, including the 19-horse supplement, are available at www.tattersallsredmile.com and on the Equineline sales catalog app for the iPad.
“We’re really pleased with the number of 2-year-olds we’ll be selling for this first-time venture, and the outstanding quality in the racehorse section has really exceeded my expectations,” Reid said. “The vast majority of the racehorses are currently racing, with a large number winning in just the past week or two, many in the top classes, including the opens and stakes races."
The 2-year-olds in the sale have the opportunity to take advantage of a special training session created just for those youngsters this Friday, after the regular Meadowlands qualifiers. Videos of the training sessions for individual 2-year-olds will be available on the Tattersalls website and at the sale.
