Consign With the Best
Gainesway excels in the sales ring by focusing on select limited numbers and offering the highest quality horses. Each year we consign at Fasig-Tipton July, Fasig-Tipton Saratoga, Keeneland September, Keeneland November, and Keeneland January.
For six consecutive years, Gainesway has ranked among the top four consignors by gross sales. In 2015 Gainesway sold $37 million worth of bloodstock, with the highest median among the top four consignors.
Our Horses Sell
A hallmark of Gainesway’s sales program is our ability to sell horses. Every year since 2006 Gainesway has been a world leader by percentage of horses sold.
In 2015 we sold 82% of all horses offered (265 of 324). In 2014 we sold 87% (268 of 308); in 2013, 91%; in 2012, 86%; and in 2011, 90%. These numbers are even more remarkable considering just 70% of all horses offered at public auction sell in the ring.
Quality and Consistency
Our sales team focuses on selling at the top of the market. We believe placement within a consignment is one of the most important decisions, and we strive to help clients place their Thoroughbreds where they will stand out from the crowd. At the sale we maintain the highest level of horsemanship and presentation as well as consistent communication with our clients.
If you are looking to sell or purchase a weanling, yearling, or broodmare, the Gainesway sales division is eager to put its record of success to work for you. Please contact Neil Howard, Michael Hernon, or Brian Graves for information about consigning with Gainesway.
Experience and Knowledge
Selling weanlings, yearlings, and broodmares requires good business sense, knowledgeable horsemen, marketing savvy, excellent presentation, and sales experience.
When we represent our clients at public auction, we bring with us decades of experience and knowledge, as well as a proven track record and a large clientele of international buyers.
The Horses We’ve Sold
If you are looking to sell weanlings, yearlings, or mares, you want a consignor with a proven track record of selling stakes winners. For decades, Gainesway has been raising and prepping horses of the highest caliber.
In 2015, only one Kentucky-based consignor produced more graded/group stakes winners than Gainesway. In 2016, our sales graduates include five new Grade/Group 1 winners: Creator, Hawkbill, Klimt, Practical Joke, and Pretty City Dancer.
Other stars sold by Gainesway include Grade 1 winners Daredevil, Jimmy Creed, Midnight Lucky, Mongolian Saturday, Ring Weekend, Sweet Lulu, and Zazu; champions Informed Decision, My Miss Aurelia, and Orientate; and Eclipse Award finalists Careless Jewel, Noble’s Promise, and Paddy O’Prado. We never lose sight of the idea that every future foal, weanling, or yearling is a potential stakes winner. We’ve built our reputation on this foundation of success.
