LOOK FOR THE ASMUSSEN HORSE CENTER CONSIGNMENT AT THE TEXAS SUMMER YEARLING SALE ON AUGUST 27 AT LONE STAR PARK!
IN 2016 OUR GRADS SWEPT BOTH DIVISIONS OF THE TEXAS THOROUGHBRED FUTURITY AND INCLUDED:
Texas-bred BLING ON THE MUSIC broke her maiden at first asking by nearly five lengths at Lone Star Park for owner Danny Keene and trainer J.R. Caldwell and then romped to win the $93,903 Texas Thoroughbred Futurity for fillies and the $100,000 Gold Rush Futurity against a field of male horses at Arapahoe Park. The filly finished third in the Grade 2 Pocahontas Stakes at Churchill Downs. She sold for a sale-topping $95,000 at the Texas 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale and earned more than $150,000 before being sold for $260,000 as a broodmare prospect in Kentucky.
Texas-bred SHADED, who sold to Clark Brewster for $36,000, won his debut by nearly four lengths on June 17 at Lone Star and then took the $90,248 Texas Thoroughbred Futurity for colts/geldings. He has already banked $80,782!
Texas-bred COUNTRY CANDY was another of the top sellers at the Texas sale when the filly by our stallion INTIMIDATOR went for $65,000 to Danny Keene and trainer J.R. Caldwell. She has already won the Evangeline Downs Princess Stakes and the Texas Stallion Stakes and placed in three other stakes to earn $119,780 with a record of 6-3-2-1.
MADE ME SHIVER, running for Hill 'n' Dale Equine Holdings Inc. and trainer Steve Asmussen, broke her maiden at Churchill Downs and then won the $100,000 Sorority Stakes at Monmouth Park. She has earned more than $90,000.
