Following the conclusion of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale of
2-year-olds in training May 24, the auction company’s president Boyd
Browning said he was pleased that in spite of the fact there were 69
more horses sold this year, the overall average was just 1.3% lower than
last year’s comparable figure.
“The numbers are very consistent from where they were last year, and
that’s encouraging, considering the catalog was 50% larger this year,”
Browning said. The median price was down 5.5% during the two-day auction
in Timmonium, Md., which took place over a single day in 2010.
