UPDATED: McLean’s “Shopping Cart” List for the First 3 Days of the Kentucky October Yearling Sales at Fasig-Tipton

(Our homework is nearly complete / Photo by Gene McLean)

The horses just keep coming.

So do the horse sales.

On Monday, Oct. 21, both will be on hand at the beautiful Fasig-Tipton Sale’s Grounds in Lexington for the annual Kentucky October Yearling Sales. And, for four days, somewhere close to 1,589 yearlings will be offered up for your review, inspection, eye-balling, shin-rubbing, throat-inspecting, critiquing and bidding.

It figures to be another rousing rendition of auctioneering and buying, too.

Here’s a look at our “Shopping Cart” List for the first THREE days. We have added a column that is our very own “Pedigree Ranking” based on the catalogue page alone. We are hoping that you read, enjoy, and take a look.

It is one of the most fun exercises that we get these days.

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.”
