Fasig-Tipton Catalogs 575 for Midlantic Sale

Fasig-Tipton has cataloged 575 entries for its Midlantic 2-year-olds in training sale to be held May 22-23 at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. The number cataloged is down slightly from the 598 entries in 2016.

"The Midlantic 2-year-olds in training sale and its dirt racetrack have long been a source of racing success at the highest levels," said Midlantic sales director Paget Bennett. "This year we have nearly 600 cataloged and perhaps our strongest sire power to date. Buyers at all levels and from all regions will find quality horses to suit their programs next month at Timonium."

The under tack show will be held over three sessions, May 16-18, beginning at 8 a.m. daily.

Each session of the sale, which follows the May 20 Preakness Stakes (G1) at nearby Pimlico Race Course, begins at 11 a.m. ET daily.

The catalog is available online and via the equineline sales catalog app. Print catalogs will be available by April 20.

Last year, Fasig-Tipton reported 337 horses sold for record gross of $23,136,400, with a $68,654 average and $32,000 median.
