The catalogue for the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December Mixed Sale, to be held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland, Tuesday, Dec. 10, may be viewed online here.
A total of 230 horses have been catalogued for the main portion of the sale, consisting of broodmares, weanlings, and yearlings. The catalogue also includes the Dispersal of Joseph Besecker, which will consist of more than 100 entries spread between the main catalogue, and the horses of racing age supplement. Fasig-Tipton will continue to accept entries for the supplemental section through Nov. 22.
“This an exciting sale from a number of perspectives, including a strong nucleus of in foal mares and exciting sire power among the weanlings,” said Midlantic Director of Sales Paget Bennett. “The Besecker Dispersal adds another level of quality to this year’s sale and should prove an attractive draw to prospective buyers.
“The Horses of Racing Age supplement has been a great addition to the sale, working well in our racing-rich Midlantic region,” Bennett added. “We have over 100 entries for the supplement to date, including a large contingent from the Besecker Dispersal that are in good form and have a lot of racing opportunities ahead of them.”
A then-weanling Pennsylvania-bred colt by Peace and Justice–Frolicking Gal (Discreet Cat) topped last year’s December sale on a bid of $87,000 from Lane’s End Bloodstock.
