Fasig-Tipton February sale expands to two days


The Fasig-Tipton Kentucky winter mixed sale will expand to two days in 2014, running Feb. 9-10.

The sale, held at Fasig-Tipton’s Newtown Paddocks location in Lexington, Ky., will feature a catalog of 522 entries. Hips 1-176 will be sold Sunday, Feb. 9, beginning at 3 p.m. Eastern, while Hips 177-522 will be sold on Monday, Feb. 10, beginning at 10 a.m.

“The success of the 2013 sale has generated a tremendous response for 2014 from our consignors,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning Jr. “Our entries are up 32 percent and this year’s catalog is one of our strongest ever. There are a number of graded stakes-winning fillies and graded stakes producers on offer, as well as a large group of newly-turned yearlings that will draw active interest. The Sunday afternoon start will provide buyers and sellers ample time to conduct their business without extending their schedules for the sale.”

The Fasig-Tipton catalog will be available online by Friday, Jan. 17. Print catalogs will be mailed by Monday, Jan. 20.
