The stallion season roster includes Tonalist, Constitution, 2016 leading freshman sire Dialed In, Bayern, Upstart, Fed Biz and Midshipman. The function will take place during a complimentary cocktail party in the Kentucky Room on the Fasig-Tipton sales grounds. In addition to live bidding on site, interested parties may also bid by phone (contact Diana Pikulski at 802-233-5377 to register). The cocktail party is being sponsored by Head of Plains Partners and Madaket Stables. The TRF Second Chances program at Lexington's Blackburn Correctional Facility opened 17 years ago.
