A unique and innovative Select Foal In Utero Sale at Ruidoso Downs has been unveiled and will have its inaugural offering on August 19.
It will be held on the Saturday night during the same weekend as the trials to the Grade 1 All American Futurity and the Grade 1 All American Derby.
The Select Foal In Utero Sale will offer only the highest quality, hand-selected embryos. The finest breeding in quarter horse racing will be represented in this limited number of embryos.
“We will select only the embryos from the premier blue-hen mares by the leading sires and offer them in a select sale format,” said sale manager Lowell Neumayer. “The established success of embryo transfers in quarter horse racing points to the need to introduce this exciting new sale concept. It offers our sellers and buyers an additional option for success in their breeding and racing operations. It’s a win-win situation.”
Further details will follow and entry blanks will be available in late March. The entry deadline is May 15.
