The Fasig-Tipton Midlantic June Two-Year-Olds-in-Training Sale is now online. The sale is scheduled for Wednesday, June 28, at 3 p.m. at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland. The under-tack show is scheduled for the day prior, Tuesday, June 27, beginning at 8 a.m. The breeze-up had previously been scheduled for Monday, June 26, but that date has been moved.
A new auction for 2023, the sale represents is the last two-year-old sale of the season and is the only sale in June to be conducted over a dirt race track. Ninety two-year-olds have been entered in the sale.
“There are some nice opportunities in this catalogue, which has strong sire power and a variety of state-bred programs represented from both the Midlantic region and beyond,” said Paget Bennett, Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Director of Sales. “This sale should prove advantageous for buyers as it is one of the few auctions in which they can evaluate a two-year-old's performance over a dirt surface. The late June date also allows buyers to send their purchases straight to the racetrack from the sale.”
Sires represented in the catalogue include Arrogate, Audible, Blame, Bolt d'Oro, Catalina Cruiser, Catholic Boy, Classic Empire, Dialed In, English Channel, Flatter, Frosted, Good Magic, Kitten's Joy, Liam's Map, Mitole, More Than Ready, Munnings, Not This Time, Omaha Beach, Practical Joke, Twirling Candy, Uncle Mo, Vino Rosso, Violence, and War Front.
State-bred or regional programs represented are Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, New York, Ontario (Canada), Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
The catalogue will also be available in the equineline sales catalogue app. Print catalogues will be available beginning June 12.
