Wanamaker’s PA-bred sale kicks off Sunday

In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association, Wanamaker’s has released their second annual Pennsylvania-Bred Sale with 37 horses catalogued. Offerings range from weanlings to broodmares in-foal, and everything in between. 

Bidding will open on Sunday, December 4th at 8:00 AM ET and close on Thursday, December 8th with the first listing set to close at 5:00 PM ET. Subsequent listings will close in three-minute increments.

Last year’s sale produced multiple horses of racing age who went on to out-earn their purchase price. This includes Simmons, who sold for $27,500 to Leonard Supchak and has gone on to earn $30,652 since the sale, as well as a PA-Bred allowance win in March at Penn National. Union Rally, a racing/broodmare prospect from last year’s sale, sold for $3,500 to Marcia Wolfe and has earned a victory and $13,440 since the sale.

“We have been thrilled with the interest for this year’s PA-Bred Sale,” remarked Wanamaker’s co-founder Liza Hendriks. “It offers a great opportunity for regional owners and breeders to offer their horses in a state with a strong program, especially with the upcoming two-year-old PA-Sired PA-Bred Stallion Series.”

Highlights of the catalogue include:

  • Seven weanlings by Winchill, consigned by Pewter Stable. Winchill is having a strong year with the undefeated colt Winning Time, who recently won the $200,000 Pennsylvania Nursery S. at Parx, restricted to Pennsylvania-breds.
  • Five mares consigned by Donald Brown, three of which are in-foal to well-regarded PA-stallion, Warrior’s Reward. Majestic Lady, one of the mare’s in-foal to Warrior’s Reward, is a black-type producer. In addition, her weanling filly by Warrior’s Reward is cataloged. 
  • Three yearlings consigned by Deborah Smith. This includes Escrow Account, a filly by top New York stallion Central Banker, and Smart Sheryl Lee, a filly by Smarty Jones whose dam is a half to multiple graded stakes winner Prince Lucky.
