About Us

In the Thoroughbred industry, trust is the hallmark of the role of the consignor, the person who sells a horse on behalf of its owner at public auction. When you entrust your horse to Warrendale Sales, we pledge to work with you to present the best horse possible at auction, while we handle all required paperwork. We are the in-between and the go-between between you, the seller and the buyer of your horse—much like a real estate agent would handle the sale of a home. Warrendale adheres to the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association Code of Ethics for Thoroughbreds Auctions, which was developed by the Sales Integrity Program Task Force. We also are a member of the Consignors & Commercial Breeders Association. 

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you this year. If my staff or I can assist you in any way, please contact us.
