Whether retained by their owners for racing, or to be showcased at sale, each yearling is thoroughly handled prior to leaving the farm during the summer and early fall months.
Retained yearlings: Each yearling proceeding directly to the owner’s stable from the farm will be given a 2-3 week shipping prep prior to departure.
Sale yearlings: Blue Chip has been a leading consignor in the sport’s premier yearlings sales for the past 5 years. Each sale yearling receives an eight week prep. During that time the farm actively encourages prospective trainers/owners to check out the yearlings on-farm, especially at the yearling preview events BCF holds. Other marketing strategies include sending out over a 1000 DVDs per sale to potential purchasers plus extensive advertising in periodical, racetrack venues, and via our website.
