Fasig-Tipton Texas has cataloged 167 horses to its 2-year-olds in training sale that will be held at Lone Star Park near Dallas on April 5.\r\nThe under-tack program will be on April 3. The start time for both the workout show and the auction will be 10 a.m. Central.\r\nThe catalog features the offspring of a wide variety of stallions, including Afleet Alex, Distorted Humor, First Samurai, Indian Charlie, Lawyer Ron, Speightstown, Songandaprayer, Tapit, Tiznow, and Valid Expectations.\r\nThe catalog is smaller than a year ago, when 223 lots made up the book.\r\n&ldquo;I think the number just reflects the shrinkage of the market, really,&rdquo; said Tim Boyce, director of sales for Fasig-Tipton Texas. &ldquo;My belief is that peoples&rsquo; shortlist will have just as many horses on it this year as they had last year.\r\n&ldquo;The quality of the sale is maintained. We&rsquo;ve got some great horses.&rdquo;\r\nBoyce said among state breeding programs, Louisiana-breds make up the largest group in the auction. Last year, a Louisiana-bred colt by Valid Expectations topped the sale when he brought $100,000.\r\nIn all, 139 horses sold at last year&rsquo;s auction, for an average of $17,064.
