From Morrisville State College:
Morrisville State will hold its 26th annual Fall Yearling Sale at 1 p.m. Sept. 20 at the college’s Nancy Sears Stowell Arena on Swamp Road.
There are a total of 69 yearlings cataloged for the 2015 sale. Eighteen of them are being sold by the college, including two yearlings of Cash Hall; six yearlings of RC Royalty; three yearlings by Conway Hall, three yearlings by Deweycheatumnhowe and one by first crop stallion, Archangel.
Conway Hall (six total yearlings in the sale) and RC Royalty (21 total yearlings in the sale) are among the leading money-winning stallions in the New York Standardbred Sale for 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds in 2014. Conway Hall,
Cash Hall and RC Royalty, all rank among the national leaders for 2- and 3-year-old trotters, on an RC Royalty became the fastest 2-year-old trotting colt ever in the NYSS on a half-mile track by virtue of his 1:58.2 score at Saratoga Gaming and Raceway in 2005. RC Royalty also holds the Massachusetts Sire Stake record for 3-year-old trotting colts of 1:59.4.
The yearling sale, which features year-old Standardbred horses sold on consignment by the college, is organized and run by Morrisville State Equine Department faculty, staff and students.
Equine students will be working the event, participating in every aspect of it from bedding stalls, grooming, leading and showing horses, to setting up the business office and assisting with cleanup.
Last year, the sale grossed nearly $1.4 million.
Profits from the sale, which is free and open to the public, go toward general maintenance and enrichment of the college’s equine programs.
