Cooler Sale Gets Warm Reception
Fasig-Tipton Texas is very encouraged by the response of sellers to the 2014 yearling and mixed auction at Lone Star Park. Previously held in summer, the auction will be held this year on Monday, October 13, starting at 11:00 a.m.
“We are closing in on 190 entries,” noted Tim Boyce, director for the south-west Fasig-Tipton venue. “We will have around 130 yearlings, with the balance primarily made up with broodmares and weanlings. Over the last week or so, we have also been working on a supplemental catalogue of horses of racing age.”
Boyce noted that recently-announced gaming developments will benefit racing in Texas and have created a positive atmosphere throughout the region.
