Terence Collier, the director of Marketing at Fasig-Tipton Sales and the Senior Sales Announcer has been with the Lexington, Kentucky based company since 1976. They are holding a unique sale on Monday featuring many stakes horses currently racing. The select yearling auction season kicks off at Fasig-Tipton’s Kentucky headquarters July 15, and this year there’s a bonus. Immediately following the yearling session, Fasig-Tipton will offer a new auction: the summer sale of selected horses of racing age. With this sale, Fasig-Tipton is attempting to establish a new tradition of selling an estimated 50 to 65 “horses with meaningful racing potential to showcase to the sport’s leading buyers,” as chief executive Boyd Browning describes it in the auction’s promotional material. It might seem a bold step to launch a select racing-age sale at a time when yearlings traditionally are in the limelight, and at a place that does not have a training track for the racing-age stock to show off their abilities. But Browning and Bayne Welker, Fasig-Tipton’s vice president for sales, said the market is ripe for such a racing-age outlet, and that the company’s detailed online catalog will give bidders plenty of ways to assess a runner’s performance.
