On Friday (June 26) Winbak Farm of Ontario announced that it would be hosting a new yearling sale this October.

The first Ontario Select Yearling Sale is slated for Saturday, October 17, 2020, and the sale will be held the same weekend as the Ontario Sires Stakes Super Finals. There will be 100-120 horses to be sold, with limited entries are available.

“In response to the COVID-19 and the cancelling of the in-person London Sale, we came up with the sale idea to make it easier for buyers,” said Joe Thomson, Winbak Farm owner. “We wanted to give the buyers a chance to inspect our horses in person where they are prepped and at a central location.”

The sale will start at noon in order to give buyers a chance to preview the yearlings before the start of the sale. Sale management hopes the time will also give attendees a chance to get to Woodbine Mohawk Park before the races start.

“We plan on having a sale preview day on Friday and a one-day sale on Saturday,” said Pat Woods, Winbak Farm of Ontario Manager. “Closer to the sale date, Winbak Farm will have 47 yearlings at the farm available for early viewing. The plan is to have them on-site 30 days prior to the sale.”

Additionally, Preferred Equine Canada will be having a consignment representing fellow Ontario breeders.

“We will list on the website where other consignors will be available for viewing prior to the sale,” said Thomson. “The sale will conform to Ontario guidelines regarding the virus.”

It is important for potential consignors to note that sale entry deadline will be July 17 or at an earlier date if the available slots are full.

The plans for the sale include live video streaming and phone and internet bidding. Interested parties are encouraged to call Pat Woods, 905.838.2145, or email him at [email protected] as soon as possible due to limited amount of consignment spots available.

More information for the Ontario Select Yearling Sale and its associated website will be available soon.
