Morrisville State Fall Standardbred Yearling Sale Sept. 17

From Morrisville State College:

Morrisville State College will hold its annual Fall Standardbred Yearling Sale at noon, Saturday, Sept. 17  at the college’s Nancy Sears Stowell Arena on Swamp Road.  

The sale preview day is 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16.

The event draws a crowd of potential buyers, sellers, trainers and owners from across the Northeast. Morrisville College's sale is the only one of its kind in New York state held on a college campus. 

A total of 90 yearlings are cataloged for the 2016 sale. Sixteen of them are being sold by the college.

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 took in close to $1 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.  For more information about the annual event, visit
