“We could not be more pleased with the strength of this catalogue,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton Director of Digital Sales. “Our goal with this first digital auction was to put together a catalogue of high-quality entries and, with the support of our consignors, we have achieved that. Prospective buyers will find something of interest on every page, with horses of racing age in top current form, pedigreed and stakes credentialed broodmare prospects, and mares in-foal on exciting covers.
“Additionally, we are pleased to offer a share in promising young sire Almanzor (FR), who is off to a fantastic start at stud in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres,” added Aaron. “It is a rare offering that adds another level of international interest and intrigue to our inaugural digital sale.”
Each entry’s page will feature a catalogue-style pedigree, five-cross pedigree, photos, and walking videos. Horses of racing age and racing/broodmare prospect pages offer Daily Racing Form Past Performances, Thoroughmanager past performances, Ragozin speed figures, and race replays. In-foal mare pages provide True Nicks and Goldmine hypothetical matings. Access to veterinary information and a repository are available on applicable entries.
For this inaugural sale, all horses of racing age have x-rays in the repository.
Location information for entries is also provided, and registered bidders may contact sellers from the entry’s page to arrange an inspection or ask for additional information.
