“We tried to build a diverse catalog with something for just about everyone,” said TTA Sales Manager Foster Bridewell. “Our shippers really had a lot to offer, in terms of stallion strength and pedigree, and we are grateful that they saw fit to sell with us. We are excited about the book we have put together and believe our buyers will be too.”
The catalog is full of notable pedigrees both regionally and nationally. Hip 117 is half Texas champ Mr Moneybags , by Too Much Bling, by Clary Bloodstock. Hip 19 is a Texas Thoroughbred Futurity Half-Winner silver series recorded by Pike Racing. Hip 87 is a half-sister to the stakes winner Pinky Bling ring and Texas Champion gold pilot of the Benchmark Training Center project. Hip 98 is a Ghostzapper filly out of a half sister to a ranked stakes winning stallion Goodbye Charlie , presented by Twin Oaks Training Center.

“The catalog is strong, family-wise,” Bridewell added. “We have horses that are not stake winners, by stake winners, by proven and new stallions, half brothers of stake winners or horses placed in stakes, and half- siblings of Texas champions. We couldn’t ask for a better group and can’t thank our shippers enough for bringing them to Texas.”
