Racing news

The Florida Sale, which is scheduled for March 2nd, has 154 horses cataloged by Fasig-Tipton. It will be held at Gulfstream Park, and there will be an under tack show starting on February 29th.

“Our inaugural sale at Gulfstream Park last year was hugely successful, with a great feel and energy that we look forward to building on in 2016,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “This year’s catalog again features outstanding quality, and we are also excited to have attracted several new consignors to Gulfstream this year, as well.

“Most importantly, the success of last year’s inaugural sale graduates, which include Eclipse champion Nyquist and grade I Los Alamitos Futurity winner Mor Spirit, supports our belief that Gulfstream is the premiere venue in North America at which to hold a 2-year-olds in training sale,”

“No other 2-year-old sale of 2015 sold an Eclipse champion or grade I-winning colt. Clearly, performance in the under tack show over Gulfstream’s dirt surface is translating to success at the highest levels of the sport.”

Other notable horses in addition to Nyquist and Mor Spirit sold at the first sale includes: stakes winners Awesome Speed, Shakhimat, Jan’s Reserve, grade II winner Annual Report, undefeated Zulu, and grade III winner Flexibility. You can browse the catalog through the Equineline sales catalog app and print copies can be picked up at the Fasig-Tipton offices starting February 3rd.

Last year’s biggest sale was Unnamed, who went for $1.4 million to M.V. Magnier.
