Eddie Woods led the totals for the top consignors, selling 24 horses for a cumulative total of $6,393,000. Early in the sale, the impressive Into Mischief colt, consigned by Mr. Woods, brought $1,100,000. Mr. Woods is a long-time customer of Auburn Laboratories, Inc., noting, “APF Pro is a valuable part of our sales operation. The improvement in their coats and overall condition is obvious within a month.  When a horse at any level feels better, they’re going to perform better.”

With this strong showing, the Thoroughbred industry is looking forward to April’s sales with enthusiasm.
