From a Fasig-Tipton release

Fasig-Tipton’s Midlantic division has catalogued 167 head for the Midlantic Winter Mixed Sale to be held Sunday, January 31. The single-session sale will begin at 11:00 a.m.

The sale will kick off with a selection of 74 broodmares and broodmare prospects, to be followed by 65 yearlings of 2016. The session will close with 28 racing/broodmare prospects and horses of racing age.

The Midlantic Winter Mixed Sale catalogue may now be reviewed online at www.fasigtipton.com. Printed catalogues will be mailed January 6 and will be available from all Fasig-Tipton offices the week of January 11.

The sale has been moved back a month from its typical December date.

Midlantic Sales Director Paget Bennett remarked that the new sale date offers Midlantic buyers some timely opportunities. “Several midlantic Thoroughbred programs, most notably Maryland and Pennsylvania, are seeing positive changes in structure, funding, and growth. This sale comes at a time to qualify foals of 2016 and add some attractive broodmares to farm inventories.”
