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. Over the past 3 1/2 years, Gainesway sales have produced 28 individual Graded stakes winners, Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks contenders, and ten Breeders' Cup competitors. 

In 2013, only two consignors--each offering far more horses at public auction--have produced more Group/Graded stakes winners than Gainesway Sales. Over the past 22 months, Gainesway consignments have yielded 14 Graded stakes winners, five Grade 1 winners, led by: international G1 winner Zaidan ($1,534,068), multi-millionaire Eclipse Champion My Miss Aurelia (G1), Breeders' Cup Sprint contender Jimmy Creed (G1), Breeders' Cup contender Sweet Lulu (G1),Acorn victress Midnight Lucky (G1, NTR).

Other recent racing stars sold by Gainesway include: Champion Informed Decision (G1), Eclipse Award Finalists Careless Jewel (G1) and Noble's Promise (G1), Jerry and Anne Moss's Zazu (G1), Donegal Racing's Paddy O'Prado (G2), Starlight Racing's Thunder Moccasin (G2), Gary and Mary West's Flashback (G2), Sam-Son's Windward Islands (G2), Jerry Durant's Macho Macho (G2), Zayat Stables' Fast Bullet (G2), Besilu Stables' Tapicat (G3), 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.
