The Buckeye Classic Thoroughbred Sale will debut on October 17th at 2:00 p.m. at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. The sale was created by a group of Ohio breeders, some of whom are former members of the Ohio Thoroughbred Breeder & Owners Board of Directors. The sale is open to yearlings, weanlings, in-calf mares and two-year-olds. The early registration deadline for the Buckeye Classic Thoroughbred Sale is July 15th.

“After a 13-year hiatus, the OTBO sale looked to be a profitable source for sellers and buyers, but for the last three years – under new management – it has gone in the wrong direction,” explained Daryl Duncan, who runs Duncan Farms with his wife, Sally. “It just wasn’t happening for us to offer our homegrown products, so we joined forces with other leading farms in Ohio and decided to create a new sales company, bringing together some great people for a common goal. Their plan and rationale for a new sale was presented to the Ohio HBPA, who agreed with their assessment and were willing to fund the venture.”

He added, “The support of the Ohio HBPA will go a long way. I am confident that the farms that have committed to this sale will provide quality, well-prepared horses as a sign of their support. I am sure we will do that.”


Duncan also stands on two-time Ohio Stallion of the Year Dominus and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Fort Larned, along with Mobil, Corfu and Air Strike. Horses sold at the new auction will be eligible to compete in the $50,000 inaugural Buckeye Classic Thoroughbred S. held in Mahoning Valley in the fall, along with horses made eligible through the previous OTBO auctions.
