Edited Fasig-Tipton press release
Bayne Welker will join Fasig-Tipton’s management team as an account executive early next year. He has been the director of public sales and stallion marketing at Mill Ridge Farm near Lexington for nine years. He also is the president of the Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association.
“It has been a privilege to have been associated with an outstanding operation like Mill Ridge,” Welker said. “I leave with a tremendous respect for Alice Chandler and the Mill Ridge staff and clientele. With Headley Bell’s leadership, the farm will continue to produce top-class Thoroughbreds under the philosophy Mrs. Chandler has instilled. Although it was difficult to leave Mill Ridge, I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities at Fasig-Tipton.”
According to Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning, Welker’s “hands-on experience and focus on auction sales, combined with his history of industry service, are qualities which will fit him perfectly at Fasig-Tipton.”
