Lexington Selected Sales Co. announced today that it plans to hold a mixed sale after the company’s Oct. 6-10 Selected Yearling Sale at the Fasig-Tipton Pavilion. The specific date and time for the mixed sale is to be announced.
This will be the company’s second mixed offering. Before a hiatus last year, the company’s first mixed venture in 2018 grossed nearly $5-million and was led by the sale of World Champion Impinktoo for $300,000.
Bringing back the mixed sale this year, according to sale managers Randy Manges and David Reid, was important, especially considering the times we’re in.
“With the large number of breeders in Kentucky, and the trainers who are expected in Lexington for the Red Mile meet, it’s a great spot to sell,” Manges said. “Many breeders have said they prefer to sell close to home, and trainers will be operating more from a Midwestern base this fall, with Lexington followed by the Breeders Crown at Hoosier.
“This sale will give them some assurance on having a great marketplace close at hand for their breeding stock and racehorses.”
Another plus for bringing back the mixed sale, according to Reid, is the sale facility itself.
“We’re fortunate in these times to have the Fasig-Tipton sales grounds at our disposal,” Reid said. “It’s not only a world-class facility, but one that’s spacious enough inside and out to accommodate in-person attendance, while maintaining safe social distancing standards.”
Along with in-person attendance, the sale will offer the options of “live” online bidding plus enhanced phone bidding.
Entries of racehorses, race fillies and mares, breeding stock and stallion shares are now being accepted. Those interested should contact David Reid at (914) 773-7777 or Randy Manges at (859) 255-8431. (Lexington Selected)
