After a successful first online auction, Wanamaker's has released its second catalogue, headed by the entry of Fiya (Friesan Fire), a 3-year-old gelding who is two-for-two on the year and posted a 98 Beyer Speed Figure and a 9 on the Ragozin Sheets in winning a Laurel allowance July 17. Fiya's 98 Beyer is the second fastest by a 3-year-old on the turf this year.
The catalogue, found on wanamakers.com, also contains yearlings, a 2-year-old racing prospect, racing/broodmare prospects, and broodmares. Prospective buyers may browse the catalogue to view pictures and videos and schedule in-person inspections with sellers. Racehorse entries also contain DRF past performances, Ragozin Sheets, and race replays. Buyers must register for an account to be able to bid.
Live bidding will open at 8:00 a.m. ET July 30 and the first listing will close at 5:00 p.m. ET with subsequent listings ending in three-minute increments. Detailed buying information can be found at wanamakers.com/buy.
“Our sellers deserve a tremendous amount of credit for helping us to build a quality and diverse catalogue,” said Wanamaker's co-founder Jack Carlino. “I feel that this catalogue displays the advantages afforded by online auctions, whether that be the timing or ability to maximize exposure with significantly less risk financially and to the horse.”
