Over 600 cataloged for Fasig-Tipton May sale
Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 636 entries for its upcoming Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale, to be held on Monday and Tuesday, May 23-24, at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland.
“This is the strongest catalogue we have ever had for Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training,” said Midlantic Sales Director Paget Bennett. “It is the largest in size in recent memory, and there is tremendous quality that will suit both leading national stables as well as the various regional circuits in our area.”
- Six Midlantic-breds among Triple Crown nomsAmong the 369 three-year-olds nominated to the Triple Crown series of races kicking off with the Kentucky Derby, six were bred in the Mid-Atlantic.
Bennett added: “Just about every current leading sire is represented in this catalogue, as well as the sport’s most sought-after young sires.”
This year’s front catalogue cover features the sale’s most recent Grade 1 winners in Beyond Brilliant, Gamine, Got Stormy, and Switzerland. The back cover features an additional 11 graded stakes winners or stakes winners that have emerged since last year’s sale.
“Sales graduates are winning on all circuits and on all surfaces, including Grade 1 wins from California, to New York, to Dubai,” continued Bennett. “Buyers have tremendous confidence purchasing off of Timonium’s dirt race track. One only needs to look at the sale’s lengthy list of stakes winning graduates to understand why.”
The under tack show will be held over three sessions, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, May 17-19. Each under tack show session will begin at 8:00 am. The 147th Preakness Stakes will be held at nearby Pimlico on Saturday, May 21, and the sale will follow on May 23 and 24. Each sale session will begin at 11 am.
