Selling Graded Stakes Winners

If you are looking to sell yearlings, weanlings, or mares, you want a consignor with a proven track record of selling stakes winners. For decades, Gainesway has been raising and prepping horses of the highest caliber. Spanning 2013-2015, Gainesway sales have produced 24 individual Graded stakes winners, Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks contenders, and multiple Breeders' Cup competitors. 

In 2015, Gainesway sales has already produced 23 stakes horses, 14 stakes winners. Over the past 17 months, Gainesway consignments have yielded 16 Graded stakes winners, led by millionaire Ring Weekend (G1), multiple Grade 1 winner Midnight Lucky (G1), top class 2- and 3-year-old Daredevil (G1).

Other recent racing stars sold by Gainesway include: Champions Informed Decision (G1) and My Miss Aurelia (G1), Eclipse Award Finalists Careless Jewel (G1), Noble's Promise (G1), and Paddy O'Prado (G1), plus additional Grade 1 winners Jimmy Creed (G1), Sweet Lulu (G1), Zazu (G1), Zaidan (G1), and more. Twenty-first century champions sold by Gainesway include Champion and Breeders' Cup winner Orientate (G1) and Champion and Kentucky Oaks winner Bird Town (G1), and monumental racehorses & sires such as triple G1 winner and classic winner Birdstone and Hopeful S. winner Sky Mesa (G1), among others. We never lose sight of the idea that every future foal, weanling or yearling is a potential stakes winner. Our reputation has been built on this foundation of success.
