The sales of these young horses are especially important to the Thoroughbred and Standardbred industries. On Thoroughbred farms in central Kentucky, the two-month period leading up to the July and September yearling sales is busy as those involved get down to the final stages of “fitting” their charges for public auction. In order to draw high dollar values, a sales yearling must be the picture of health and athleticism. Notwithstanding the obvious importance of pedigree, the intensive preparation of the yearling during this final stage can add considerable value. Buyers expect a sales yearling to be free of blemishes, perfectly conformed, and pleasing to the eye. Right or not for the athletic adult horse, appearance is everything at this age.
