Nominations Now Open for the Fasig-Tipton November Sale

Nominations are now open for the 2023 Fasig-Tipton November Sale, to be held on Tuesday, November 7 in Lexington, Kentucky.

Last year’s sale delivered industry leading results for sellers, with the one-night auction exceeding $100,000,000 in gross sales for the second consecutive year.  Thirty fillies or mares sold for $1,000,000 or more, including five of the six most expensive fillies and mares sold in North America.

Other highlights included:

  • Highest price Thoroughbred and highest price broodmare sold in the world in 2022 (Gamine for $7,000,000)
  • Highest price racing/broodmare prospects sold in North America in 2022 (Shedaresthedevil and Campanelle (IRE) for $5,000,000)
  • Highest average of any breeding stock sale in the world in 2022 ($589,899)
  • Weanlings sold for as much $1,350,000, with an average price of $184,932, and a median of $140,000

“We advertise the Fasig-Tipton November Sale as the world’s premier breeding stock event, and for good reason,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “It provides an atmosphere of electricity unlike any other Thoroughbred auction in the world, providing sellers with the strongest market for quality out there.”

Browning continued: “The sale will be held on the Tuesday afternoon and evening following the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita, just as it has for the last two Breeders’ Cups held in California.  This timing is beneficial for both horses and humans.  It provides an appropriate amount of time for horses that are headed to the sale from the Breeders’ Cup to ship to Kentucky.  For people attending the races, a Tuesday sale allows them to enjoy the races before coming to Lexington to shop the sale.”
