While Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July started the yearling season on a strong note in its usual position of late, horses of racing age also turned plenty of heads at the first ever Fasig-Tipton summer horses of racing age sale.
Mike Recio will help direct bloodstock services and client relations for the Paris, Ky.-based Hidden Brook Farm, it was announced Feb. 10.
Headley Bell, managing partner at Mill Ridge Farm, announced Feb. 23 the addition of Mike Recio as sales and stallion director.
With the prices for sale yearlings falling and world economic problems rising, many breeders are hoping to save money on stud fees in 2009. Stallion managers in Central Kentucky are expected to begin announcing the amounts they will charge soon, and several of them told The Blood-Horse they would be more likely to keep their fees the same than go down. They also plan to raise the fees for some stallions whose progeny have been performing well on the racetrack.
Frank Stronach's Adena Springs operation has canceled the 2008 edition of its annual broodmare sale. The auction, which featured mares in foal to Adena Springs stallions, had been held for 11 consecutive years previously.
