Fasig Tipton Summer Yearling Sale - 2009
This Monday I photographed the Texas Fasig-Tipton Summer Yearling Sale. The sale has been a two day event in the past but this year was only one day with 370 catalog entries.
The days was much cooler than in years past, but many of the horses went through without selling or even meeting the upset price of $1000. The Sale Topping horse was a Purge x Ballagren Chestnut colt consigned by Inside Move, Inc, Agent and sold to Midwest Thoroughbreds for $87,000. Here is a Gallery of images I took during this sale.
