The San Antonio Horse Sale Company is pleased to announce the date and location for its San Antonio Alamo Classic Fall Horse Sale. The auction will be held on Saturday, September 28, at the Travis County Exposition Center in Austin.
The first SAHSC sale was originally set for June 22 but due to consignor requests and bad weather in region, the initial sale will now be held September 28 to give consignors more time to prepare.
“We looked at a lot of locations, and we really think this is the perfect spot,” said longtime horseman Bart Sherwood, who previously operated the SAHSC from 1998 to 2002. “The Travis County Expo Center is a centrally located facility serving the needs of all Texas horseman and women, both consignors and buyers. SAHSC looks for a long-term partnership with the Expo Center as the home for all future sales.”
The sale is open to both Thoroughbreds and American Quarter Horses and will include yearlings, broodmares and horses of racing age, plus barrel and hunter/jumper prospects.
“We felt like this was the right time to bring back a sale to the central Texas area and that there will be demand from both buyers and sellers for a sale like this that includes Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses and multiple disciplines,” said Sherwood. “We had some very good sales back in the day, so we are optimistic that we can get that success going again.”
The entry deadline is July 10 with a consignment fee of $450 and commission rate of 5 percent, with a $250 minimum. There is also an early-bird consignment discount of $50 per head before May 30, and a $50 per head discount on four or more horses consigned. And you consign four or more horses by May 30 you get both discounts!
Net proceeds from the sale will benefit the Train a Dog – Save a Warrior (TADSAW) program which provides for the training of a Medical Alert Service Dog to any veteran surviving with MIADS, PTSD, MST and/or TBI at no charge to the veteran or their family.
SAHSC also plans to conduct the San Antonio Rose Classic Mixed Horse Sale in summer 2020. Look for more information to come.
