Hidaka Training Sale
(Organizer: Hidaka Higashi Agricultural Cooperative Association)

A Two-Year-Old Training Sale

The vast majority of horses put on sale here have been broken at the Bloodhorse Training Center (BTC), which is known as the top racehorse training facility in the Far East. Every year large numbers of these horses have recorded stellar times at public training displays. This training sale therefore offers some of the best horses in the country. Horses that are not only well trained, but have superb bloodlines.

The sale continues to produce successful horses year after year. Past graduates of this sale include Yamakatsu Suzuran (Hanshin Three-Year-Old Fillies Stakes (Jpn I)), Satono Progress (New Zealand Trophy (Jpn II)), Tenzan Seiza (Kyoto Shimbun Cup (Jpn II)), Meisho Munenori (Hyogo Championship (Jpn II)), Blue Eleven (Sekiya Kinen (Jpn III)), and Excuse (Queen Cup (Jpn III)).

Additionally, the number of horses purchased by overseas buyers involved in horseracing, such as the Korean Racing Association, has been greatly increasing over recent years.

Around three hours by car from New Chitose Airport to JRA's Hidaka Yearling Training Farm, the sale site.
