Fasig-Tipton is once again offering “Virtual Yearling Inspection” videos for its upcoming Saratoga select sale on the company’s website (www.fasigtipton.com). Each yearling video clip consists of a headshot, shots of the horse walking, and a “profile” conformation shot.
Viewers have the choice of watching a compilation of all yearling video clips or selecting individual hips on the Fasig-Tipton TV section of the website and in the Interactive Catalog. Videos also can be viewed on mobile devices via Fasig-Tipton’s Mobile Catalog section.
In addition, the videos can be shared through the video player’s “Share” icon, which offers the capability to quickly e-mail, link, or embed a yearling video clip on various social media outlets.
“We are very pleased to be offering these Virtual Inspection clips for the second consecutive year for our Saratoga sale,” said Bayne Welker, Fasig-Tipton’s vice president of sales. “These videos received a tremendous amount of online traffic last year, and provide a wonderful resource for both our buyers and sellers.”
Videos for 70% of the catalog could be viewed as of Aug. 3. The remaining videos to be filmed of horses offered by participating consignors were scheduled to be available by the weekend of Aug. 6-7.
The 91st Saratoga select sale will be held Aug. 8-9 in upstate New York, with each session beginning at 7 p.m. EDT at the Humphrey S. Finney Pavilion. There are 160 horses cataloged for the auction.
