(Edited Fasig-Tipton press release)
Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 439 yearlings for its Texas summer yearling sale Aug. 28 and 29 at Lone Star Park.
"Pinhookers did exceptionally well with their purchases from here last year, and our graduates are doing well at the races," said Fasig-Tipton Texas director of sales Tim Boyce. "I am looking forward to a lively market."
Louisiana-breds are in almost equal numbers this year as the Texas-breds. There also are a significant number of yearlings from Oklahoma and New Mexico.
"I am very pleased with the proven sire power in the catalogue, as well as yearlings from first and second-crop sires," Boyce said. "Many of the stallions whose yearlings proved very popular in our opening yearling sale in Kentucky in July are featured in our Texas catalogue."
Catalogues are available at all Fasig-Tipton offices, and the catalogue pages can be viewed on the company's Web site
