HRTV to Cover November Sale

HRTV will air portions of the sale in between races at Churchill and Aqueduct.

Edited press release

HorseRacing TV will present live coverage of the star-studded November Sale from Fasig-Tipton Nov. 2 at 3 p.m. ET.

HRTV's coverage of the sale will be interspersed throughout the network's live airing of the final races from both Churchill Downs and Aqueduct, which begin earlier in the afternoon.

The November Sale, held at the Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, will catalog a wide array of outstanding offerings--80 racing or broodmare prospects, 50 in-foal mares, and 52 weanlings.

The highlight of the sale is anticipated to be the auction of Broodmare of the Year Better Than Honour, who is scheduled to be the last horse through the auction ring Nov. 2.

The 12-year-old is the only mare in North American racing history to produce two Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winners--2006 winner Jazil and his brilliant sister Rags to Riches, who defeated eventual Horse of the Year Curlin in the 2007 running.  Better Than Honour is also the dam of grade I winner Casino Drive.

The November Sale will also include a high percentage of stakes winners, with 18 females possessing direct grade I qualifications. Of particular note is Stardom Bound, recent Bessemer Trust Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) winner and likely Eclipse winner as champion 2-year-old filly.
