Fasig-Tipton October Yearling Sale Begins Today

From the Fasig-Tipton Media Team:

Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 1,499 yearlings for The October Sale, to be held on October 22-25 in Lexington, Kentucky.  The four continuous sessions, conducted on Monday-Thursday, will begin each day at 10 am.

“The October Sale continues to produce successful results for both buyers and sellers, which has generated a larger catalogue once again in 2018,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “There is good quality from start to finish – at all price levels – and the sire power represented is outstanding.”

The sale continues to produce horses that compete the world over.

“October graduates have globally notched an impressive 175 stakes wins or placings to date in 2018,” noted Browning.

The catalogue may now be viewed online and via the equineline sales catalogue app.  Print catalogues will be available by October 5.

The horse broke well today,” Gaffalione said. “I had the horse inside, Dunph, going to the lead and then (Gun It) showed a little bit of speed. When I saw they were intent on going I just tried to get him back and got him to relax. He came back to me nicely and settled well down the backside. Got a little keen going into the far turn and wanted to move a little early. But I didn’t want to take too much away from him so I tried to sit as long as I could. He was waiting on horses down the lane but I kept him at task and there was plenty of horse there.”

“Mark (Casse, the trainer) and his team have done a great job,” Gaffalione said. “They’ve had a ton of confidence in this horse the whole way. It’s just an honor to be able to ride the horse. He’s just so professional, trains great and he’s a pleasure to be around.”
