In partnership with the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association of New Jersey, Wanamaker’s will be holding the first-ever New Jersey-Bred Sale on Thursday, November 16th. The auction will occur just a month after the conclusion of the 2023 Monmouth Park meet, where New Jersey-breds found immense success in both restricted and open races.
“We are excited to partner with Wanamaker’s on a New Jersey-bred mixed sale,” said Michael Campbell, executive director of Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association of New Jersey. “The New Jersey-bred program is gaining attention from breeders and owners across the country. The partnership with Wanamaker’s is a great benefit to New Jersey breeders who can sell their horses without the stress and financial commitment of bringing them to the sales grounds. With a dozen New Jersey-breds earning over $100,000 in purse earnings during the 51-day Monmouth Park meet, now is a great time to be involved in the New Jersey-bred program.”
Entries will be open until Monday, November 6th, and the catalogue will be released on November 8th. The entry fee for those looking to sell their New Jersey-bred will be $300. The sale will be open to horses of all ages and all entries must be registered with the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association of New Jersey.
