F-T catalogs 237 for Calder 2-year-old sale


Fasig-Tipton's Calder select 2-year-old sale has 237 horses in its catalog, the auction house announced Tuesday.

The sale is set for 11 a.m. March 2 at Calder Race Course in Miami, and an under-tack show will take place 10 a.m. Feb. 26 at Calder.

"The catalog is a little smaller than some previous years, but that's not something which surprised us," Fasig-Tipton chief executive officer Boyd Browning said. "Our Calder consignors reacted to the challenges posed by the marketplace by being extremely selective in their purchases."

The Grade 2 Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton, kicks off sale week on Feb. 20. The auction company also will sponsor the Fasig-Tipton Fillies Festival at Gulfstream, featuring three graded stakes for fillies on a single card.

Catalogs for the Calder select juvenile sale are online now at www.fasigtipton.com and will be available in the company's offices starting Jan. 29.
