Markel Insurance Breeders Championship Futurity Yearling Sale

“Commitment to Integrity”

The Markel Insurance Breeder Championship Futurity Yearling Sale is limited entry consignment sale designed to bring many of the nation's top yearlings to public sale. The sale is only open to yearlings enrolled in the NSBA Breeders Championship Futurity or NSBA Color Breeders Championship Futurity and is held in conjunction with the NSBA World Championship Show each year.

The 2021 Markel Insurance Breeders Championship Futurity Yearling Sale was another record setting sale. 83 yearlings sold for over $1.4 million dollars resulting in a graduate purse estimated to be $187,612. The high selling colt was Cool Ladys Man, consigned by Knapp Quarter Horse Farm, LLC, the high selling mare was VS Guardian Angel, consigned by Glover Galyean Partnership and the high selling gelding was Pretty Dang Good, consigned by Meghan Tierney. 
Proceeds from the sale are used to fund a purse exclusively held for sale graduates. Sale graduates are then eligible to compete for the purse at the Breeder Championship Futurity in their two or three year old year. In 2021, an estimated total of $187,612 will be set aside for graduates of that sale. Horses sold through the sale can compete in any one of the Two Year Old or Three Year Old Breeders Championship Futurity or Color Breeders Championship Futurity classes for their share of the purse. Sold horses are eligible to declare in only one class and must declare the class prior to competition.
