Sales Prep

Sales Prep occurs from late May through September with most of the yearlings at Elm Tree Farm being sold at the prestigious Fasig-Tipton July Sale and the world-famous Keeneland September Sale, both in Lexington, and at regional sales such as the Fasig-Tipton Texas Sale for Louisiana-bred yearlings. In September, weanlings and broodmares are prepared for the November Mixed Bloodstock Sale at Keeneland. In addition, other horses will be sold at the Keeneland January Sale.

Elm Tree Farms takes pride in offering one of the best and most comprehensive and respected sales preparation programs not only in Kentucky, but in the entire industry. We focus on proper feeding, compassionate health care, unsurpassed grooming, and plenty of essential exercise—all designed to bring a horse to its topmost condition at sale time.

You can rest assured that when we prepare your horse for sale it will look its absolute best and be at its peak physical condition. Through years of experience and our unwavering desire to continually improve the care and handling of the horses that owners just like you have entrusted into our care, we have successfully fine-tuned our sales prep program to ensure a maximum return on your financial investment.

There is no substitute for daily and vigorous grooming and conditioning to bring a horse into to its optimum form. Let us design a sales prep program to suit you and your horses’ needs.
