F-T Texas Yearlings Sale has National Appeal

Catalog for Aug. 26 auction includes 129 youngsters by a wide variety of stallions.

Fasig-Tipton's Texas division will hold its summer yearling sale at the company's auction complex at Lone Star Park Aug. 26.

The catalog includes 129 yearlings and the sale will start shortly after 5 p.m. CDT. It follows a cocktail reception and charity auction co-sponsored by the sales company and the Texas Thoroughbred Breeders' Association to benefit the Texas Educational Fund and The Paddock Foundation.

"Among the many sires represented in the sale is Bellamy Road , who had the highest-priced colt at our company's first yearling sale of the season in Kentucky on July 15," said Fasig-Tipton Texas sales director Tim Boyce.

"We have a quality catalog for the Southwest, nicely balanced between nationally proven sires like Birdstone , City Zip, Dunkirk, Eddington , Flatter , Political Force, Ready's Image , Stephen Got Even, and Wildcat Heir; and Southwest regional sires such as Chitoz, Early Flyer, Save Big Money , Special Rate, Too Much Bling , and Valid Expectations," Boyce said. "This year I think we'll see a great deal of interest in the exciting freshman stallions as well, such as Affirmatif, Grasshopper , Line of David, Silver City, Sing Baby Sing, and Summer Bird.

"Given the more upbeat mood in our industry and the economy generally, we're looking forward to a solid sale."

Catalogs will be available from all Fasig-Tipton offices from July 26th , will be in the equineline iPad App soon and may now be viewed online by clicking here.
