ALEXANDRIA, LA—FEBRUARY 12, 2019—Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders' Associating announced dates for their annual yearling sale this week. The 2019 LQHBA Yearling Sale will be conducted again over three-days, August 1 thru 3 at the Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, Louisiana.

Last year the annual sale grossed a record $6,672,800 for the 461 state-bred yearlings sold.

"The average was up 22% and median climbed 14%," LQHBA Executive Director Tony Patterson said.

All yearlings entered in the sale are paid to date in the association's rich $1 million dollar LQHBA Louisiana Million Futurity(RG1) conducted in December each year at Evangeline Downs.

Last season's winner Mpshinning, a $27,000 LQHBA Yearling graduate, earned $445,000 for winning the Louisiana Million. A winner of six of eight starts, the son of All American Futurity(G1) winner Mr Piloto earned more than $591,000 at 2. A one-year ROI return of nearly 22%. He was bred by the 2018 AQHA Racing Champion Breeders' Jon and Donna McPherson.

Consignment forms to enter Louisiana-bred yearlings in the 2019 LQHBA Yearling Sale will be available later this year.
