Our success is a result of expanding time-honored traditions to include more
direct activities like proper placement, aggressive marketing, sale prepping
and presentation, plus open lines of communication with our clients.
In the highly competitive world of breeding, raising and selling
Thoroughbred horses, Denali stands out due to our total commitment to our
clients and their horses. Working closely with our clients, we determine
which sales offer the most advantageous market for their yearlings, and
together strive to bring horses to auction that are at the peak of physical
condition and ready to be sold. This approach has resulted in Sale Toppers at the world's premier venues, including Saratoga Select, Keeneland November, and Tattersalls December.
An important achievement at Denali is working with buyers on a professional
level, offering full disclosure by supplying health histories, information
and updates that allow them to bid on our horses with confidence. This
dedication to seller and buyer has earned us a reputation for integrity and
Consistently a leader at the marquee yearling sales, Denali has sold more than $240,000,000 worth of yearlings since 1995. For 19 consecutive years Denali has ranked among the top ten yearling consignors, including eight times among the top five. In 2014, we ranked sixth among all yearling consignors, with $13.6 million in gross sales.
Our close ties to NY breeders has resulted in a top ranking among the leading sellers of NY Breds at the Saratoga August Preferred Sale. Denali has been #1 Consignor at this Sale eight times in the past 11 years, three out of the last four years.
Our commercial success is a direct result of previous racetrack success. And Denali
consignments consistently produce. We have sold hundreds of stakes horses at public auction, including two Kentucky Derby (G1) winners, a Preakness (G1) winner, a Dubai World Cup (G1) winner, a Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) winner, Breeders' Cup Mile (G1) winner, and many, many others.
