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, Fasig-Tipton November, Keeneland November, and Keeneland January.
For 12 consecutive years, Gainesway has ranked among the top four consignors by gross sales. In 2021, Gainesway sold nearly $66 million worth of bloodstock, and our yearling sales led by average for consignors with 100 or more offered – including the world’s highest-priced yearling sold at public auction last year ($2.6 million).
Last year, Gainesway sold five million dollar mares at the November sales – including the second highest-priced horse sold at Keeneland November (Pink Sands, $2.3 million)
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 2020, we sold 90% of all horses offered (342 of 380). In 2019, we sold 88% of all horses offered (377 of 427). In 2018, we sold 83% (310 of 374). In 2017, 84%; in 2016, 78%; and in 2015, 82%. 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 Brian Graves for information about consigning with Gainesway.
