Fasig-Tipton to Open Saratoga Sales Grounds for August Digital Horses of Racing Age Entries
Fasig-Tipton has announced that its sales grounds in Saratoga Springs, New York, will be available for August Digital Sale sellers who wish to utilize the facility to show their consignment’s horses of racing age to prospective buyers.
“The July Selected Horses of Racing Age sale illustrated the strength of the current marketplace for active racehorses, and we want to offer sellers another avenue by which to showcase their consignment towards the end of the Saratoga meet,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton’s Director of Digital Sales. “Top trainers and owners from across the country will be in Saratoga for the Travers that weekend and recent results have shown that the demand for racehorses is as strong as ever.”
Horses of racing age sellers will be permitted to ship in on Sunday, August 27, for the purpose of showing their offerings on Monday, August 28. August Digital Sale offerings will be made public when the catalogue is announced on Thursday, August 24, at 12 pm ET. Bidding for the online-only sale closes starting at 2 pm ET on Tuesday, August 29.
“The August Digital Sale offers buyers an opportunity to purchase horses of racing age ahead of the lucrative fall race meetings – meetings that feature the last turf racing opportunities of the year in many states,” Aaron added. “We encourage racing stables to take advantage of the strong demand for horses of racing age and enter into our August sale.”
The deadline to nominate for the August Digital Sale is August 16. Learn more or nominate online at digital.fasigtipton.com.
