This sale is open to the public and consists *mostly* of failing or failed racehorses. If you want more information about the sale, please visit our paddock sale FAQ page before contacting us with questions as this is a very hectic time of year for us.

***It is important to note that this year CANTER. S. IL will NOT be able to purchase any horses from the sale unless an extremely dire circumstance arises. We already have a full house and funding this year has been down. As much as we hate to be in this position, we have to be responsible for the horses to whom we have already made a commitment. It is especially vital this year that we get this message out to as many potential good homes as possible so please crosspost at will!***
Thank you so much for reading, and please spread the word!
