Texas Yearling Sale Will Have National Appeal

Fasig-Tipton’s Texas division will hold its Summer Yearling Sale at the company’s sales complex at Lone Star Park on Monday, August 26. A total of 129 yearlings have been catalogued, and the sale will get underway shortly after 5:00 p.m., following a cocktail reception and charity auction co-sponsored by the sales company and the Texas Thoroughbred Association to benefit the Texas Thoroughbred Educational Fund and The Paddock Foundation.

“Among the many sires represented in the sale is Bellamy Road, who had the highest-priced colt at our company’s first yearling sale of the season in Kentucky on July 15,” noted Fasig-Tipton Texas sales director Tim Boyce.

“We have a quality catalogue for the Southwest – nicely balanced between nationally-proven sires like Birdstone, City Zip, Dunkirk, Eddington, Flatter, Political Force, Ready’s Image, Stephen Got Even, and Wildcat Heir and southwest regional sires such as Chitoz, Early Flyer, Save Big Money, Special Rate, Too Much Bling and Valid Expectations. This year I think we’ll see a great deal of interest in the exciting freshmen stallions as well, such as Affirmatif, Grasshopper, Line of David, Silver City, Sing Baby Sing, and Summer Bird.

Given the more upbeat mood in our industry and the economy generally, we’re looking forward to a solid sale.”

The sale features 19 Louisiana-breds, 30 Oklahoma-breds and 58 Texas-breds.

Catalogues will be available from all Fasig-Tipton offices from July 26 , will be in the equineline iPad app soon and may now be viewed online by clicking here.
