Morrisville State College annual yearling sale held Sept. 17 was a huge success.
The sale, held at the college’s Nancy Sears Stowell Arena on Swamp Road, drew a crowd of potential buyers, sellers, trainers and owners from across the Northeast.
Morrisville’s sale is the only one of its kind in New York state held on a college campus.
A total of 81 yearlings grossed $1,106,136 for an average of $13,656. The highest-priced yearling was Thunderman, topping out at $55,000, consigned by Lakeview Equine, followed by My Lady Winner at $50,000, consigned by Preferred Equine.
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 participated in every aspect of the sale from administrative duties to horse handling and showing horses in the sales ring.
Profits from the sale go toward general maintenance and enrichment of the college’s equine programs. For complete sale results visit www.morrisvillesale.com.
