“Farish and Lane’s End also have excelled in the auction ring, selling millions of dollars worth of horses each year and ranking perennially among the top consignors…” – The Blood-Horse
Lane’s End has been representing clients at major sales for more than 25 years and in that time has been the leading consignor on 26 occasions at numerous Keeneland sales, at Saratoga, and at Barretts in California. From 1988 through 1996, Lane’s End was the leading consignor at the renowned Keeneland July Sale. And from 2000 to 2005, Lane’s End led the consignor list at the select sessions of the important Keeneland September Sale. And in 2004, we made history by selling an $8-million colt, the highest priced yearling ever sold in September at that time. In 2011, we were the leading consignor at both the Keeneland September and November Sales, setting a record for a consignor at Keeneland.
Equally important, however, is our reputation for selling top runners, such as champions and/or Grade 1 winners A.P. INDY, SAINT LIAM, WAIT A WHILE, JAZIL, RAGS TO RICHES, SUMMER SQUALL, LEMON DROP KID, QUALITY ROAD, STEVIE WONDERBOY, and THUNDER GULCH. We have sold more than 345 stakes winners and we have been the leading consignor by number of Grade 1 winners sold.
Lane’s End is an active participant in the Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association (CBA) with Farm Manager Michael Cline among the Board of Directors.
