Dean Dorton is pleased to release Thoroughbred Business Year in Review 2015. This annual publication focuses on:

 

•                    Thoroughbred public auction markets

•                    Breeders' costs and profits

•                    Stud fees

•                    Changes in production costs and yearling selling prices

•                    Racing purses and the number of horses racing

 

Notably, amounts available to thoroughbred breeders from yearling sales proceeds, after recovering stud fees, sales commissions, and mare and foal board costs, generally declined in 2015. But, on average, 2015 weanling sellers generally had improved results from 2014.
