The 2020 Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale, the 2020 New Mexico Bred Sale and the Foal In Utero Sale will be conducted at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Oklahoma, on August 27, 28 and 29.
After weighing several factors relating to the annual horse sales, specifically the current New Mexico Public Health Order which limits mass gatherings, All-American Ruidoso Horse Sale will partner with Lazy E Arena, located just north of Oklahoma City, to hold the sales.
The two long-standing sales will also be combined into a single event.
With a start time of 10 a.m. each day, the Thursday session will feature approximately 200 New Mexico-bred yearlings. The Friday/Saturday sessions will offer approximately 400 Select Quarter Horse Yearlings, 20 Select Foals In Utero, and the partial R.D. Hubbard dispersal.
The live sale event will be streamed online at RaceRuidoso.com at no charge. Interested buyers will be able to bid onsite and via phone only. Horses will arrive on site at the Lazy E and will be available for inspection beginning August 25. A single catalog will be produced for all three days and will be available the first week of August. A catalog can be requested at RaceRuidoso.com.
The sale dates are the weekend after the All American Futurity and Derby trials, which occur at Ruidoso Downs August 21 through 23.
“We will not have the magic of Ruidoso this year, but the Lazy E arena is a nice air-conditioned facility that is used to hosting big events and will accommodate our specific needs. We look forward to returning to Ruidoso in 2021,” said Lowell Neumayer, General Manager of the All-American Horse Sale Co. “The All-American Ruidoso Horse Sale Co. is very grateful to Gary and Micah McKinney and Dan Wall of the Lazy E, and the Ruidoso Downs owners and management for their assistance in helping to arrive at this solution.”
