Lexington Selected Yearling Sales Co. announced today that its annual selected yearling sale, originally scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Oct. 6, will now start on Monday, Oct. 5, and run through Friday, Oct. 9.
The yearling sale will be followed by the company’s mixed sale, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10.
All sale sessions get underway at 7 p.m. at Fasig-Tipton’s Newtown paddocks in Lexington, Ky.
According to the company’s sale managers Randy Manges and David Reid, yearlings are expected to begin arriving on the grounds beginning Friday, Oct. 2, and will be shown through the weekend prior to the sale.
Both the yearling and mixed sales will offer “live” in-person attendance, with COVID-19 safety measures and social distancing protocols in place. Live online bidding and enhanced phone bidding will also be available.
The two Lexington Selected sales will be preceded by Fasig-Tipton’s own Thoroughbred “Selected Yearlings Showcase” sale in early September.
“Having the Thoroughbred sale there ahead of us gives us a chance to see best practices... how the setup is handled and how everything flows, from inspections at the consignment areas to the pavilion,” Reid said.
“We’re looking forward to playing host to consignors and buyers, and with the quality on offer, expect the sales to go very well.”
