The Breeders' Cup is over, but there's still plenty of excitement in the Thoroughbred industry with Central Kentucky's breeding stock sales taking over the spotlight. Fasig-Tipton conducts its select mixed auction Sunday, beginning at 1:30 p.m. (EDT), and Keeneland kicks off its 12-day run on Monday, beginning at 10 a.m.
Fasig-Tipton's offerings include I'll Get Along, the dam of Horse of the Year candidate and two-time classic winner Smarty Jones, and Joiski's Star, the dam of NetJets Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) winner Singletary. There are also dispersals by the late Louisiana oilman John Franks and Daniel Borislow, who blames a dispute with the Internal Revenue Service for his sell-off. Joiski's Star is part of the Borislow dispersal along with multiple grade I winner Toccet, a stallion prospect.
Keeneland has numerous top young mares right off the racetrack or carrying their first foals. Among the first-day offerings are grade II winner and millionaire Smok'n Frolic, grade I winner Stellar Jayne (third in the Breeders' Cup Distaff, gr. I), grade I winner Elloluv, grade I winner Take Charge Lady (in foal to Seeking the Gold), grade I winner Dessert (in foal to Kingmambo), and grade II winner Cat Fighter.
The Keeneland auction runs through Nov. 19.
Fasig-Tipton will conduct Stallion Access November sale of seasons and shares on Sunday following the select mixed auction and the annual broodmare sale for Frank Stronach's Adena Springs on Thursday, Nov. 11, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
