FT Racing Age Sale Offers Digital Resource
A new robust online catalog is now available for Fasig-Tipton's inaugural summer sale of selected horses of racing age.
The new sale, which immediately follows Fasig-Tipton's July Select Yearling sale July 15, will offer 69 horses.
"Recruiting entries continues, but those already accepted present some fascinating opportunities," said sale company president Boyd Browning. "There are graded stakes winners, colts and fillies with proven form and with many entry levels ahead of them, and exciting prospects from Europe and South America.
"The racing sector has responded very positively to this project and we are excited with the growing group of quality racehorses we will offer."
Interested buyers will find a wealth of information through the online catalog that features updated past performances, race videos, and links to statistics in North America, South America, and Europe.
"The web catalog has several features to assist in the evaluation of horses' form," said Max Hodge, Fasig-Tipton's director of client services. "Ragozin 'sheets' numbers are included where available, as well as in-depth analysis for every horse in the sale by the Daily Racing Form's national handicapper Mike Watchmaker.
"We're also encouraging clients to sign up for e-mail alerts through our website," Hodge continued. "In addition to getting the sale's latest entries—and there are some significant racehorses in the pipeline—pedigree and racing updates will also be sent to those on our alert list."
Among the recognizable names in the catalog are grade I winners Jaycito, a 5-year-old son of Victory Gallop; and Teaks North, a gelding by Northern Afleet , who has won two stakes this year and finished second Feb. 16 in the Mac Diarmida Stakes (gr. IIT) at Gulfstream Park. Also being offered is Unstoppable U, a 4-year-old son of Exchange Rate , who won the Maxxam Gold Cup Handicap at Sam Houston Race Park in March.
Traditional printed catalogs will be available only on the sales grounds.
