Fasig-Tipton has catalogued an initial 410 entries for its Midlantic Fall Yearlings Sale, to be held on Monday, September 30, and Tuesday, October 1. The sale will be held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland.
Fasig-Tipton will continue to accept supplemental entries for the sale through September 18.
The Monday session will begin at 4 pm and offer hips 1-150. The Tuesday session will begin at 10 am and offer hips 151-410, followed by all supplemental entries.
“Midlantic Fall grads have notched more than 180 stakes wins or stakes placings since last year, a strong statistic that all buyers should take notice of,” said Midlantic Director of Sales Paget Bennett. “Henley’s Joy, winner of this year’s Belmont Derby (G1), is just the latest top-rung horse to come from this sale, and he is joined on this year’s catalogue cover by graded stakes winners in California, Florida, and Canada.
“The sale is also once again a top-ranked North American yearling sale by percentage of two-year-old winners sold, earners of more than $150,000 sold, average earnings, and average number of starts,” added Bennett.
The catalogue may now be viewed online. It will also be available via the equineline sales catalogue app. Print catalogues will be available from all Fasig-Tipton offices beginning September 6.
