Fasig-Tipton has released adjusted dates for its upcoming Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale, which will be held a week later than previously scheduled in response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. The two-day auction will be held May 26 and 27 at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland. The under tack show will be conducted Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, May 21-23. The auction had previously been scheduled for May 18 and 19.
“We have been in discussions with the Maryland State Fairgrounds following the CDC’s recent guidance announcement and determined it would be best to push the sale back one week,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “This allows appropriate clearance from the current CDC recommended eight-week timetable.”
Fasig-Tipton also announced dates for a second Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training auction to be held in June. The June Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale will be conducted Wednesday and Thursday, June 24-25, with the under tack show taking place Monday and Tuesday, June 22-23. The auction will also be conducted at the Maryland State Fairgrounds.
“As the auction calendar continues to shift as a result of COVID-19, the addition of this June auction provides another sales venue for buyers and sellers,” said Browning. “We are making every effort to ensure that there are ample opportunities for our customers to conduct needed business under these difficult circumstances. We will continue to monitor the current situation and make additions or changes to our sales schedule as conditions dictate.”
