F-T Catalogs 337 Lots for Winter Mixed Sale

Auction, which is scheduled for Feb. 8 in Lexington, has 115 yearlings.

Fasig-Tipton has cataloged 337 lots for its Kentucky winter mixed sale, which will be held Feb. 8 in Lexington. The number is up 10.1% from last year’s total of 306.

"This is an attractive sale from several different perspectives," said Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning. "There are several mares in foal to 2009 leading sires such as Medaglia d'Oro  and Tiznow . We have a number of broodmare prospects coming off the track with graded stakes qualifications. In addition, we have 115 yearlings catalogued with domestic and international pedigree appeal."

The auction will begin at 10 a.m. EST.

During last year’s winter mixed sale, when 206 horses were sold, the gross revenue plunged 62.9% to $2,392,900. The average dropped 42.8% to $11,616, and the median fell 28.6% to $7,000. The buy-back rate declined from 24.5% in 2008 to 15.6% in 2009.
