The fourth annual Fasig-Tipton California Fall Yearlings and Horses of All Ages promotion returns to the Fairplex Sales Booth in Pomona on Tuesday. Bidding for a single session is conducted at 11am PST, which is 2pm EST.
The portfolio includes 279 stallions, for sale first, and 55 race-age horses. The majority of the horses were bred in California, but there are some crosses of Kentucky crosses bred by the likes of Platen, MachiningCoal Front, Tapwrit, West CoastTiznow, Frostedet cetera.
“We have a very strong group of Cal-breds,” said Michael Machowsky of Fasig-Tipton. “If you race primarily in California, this is the place to get your horses. We have over 200 Cal-breds for sale and sometimes they go and compete with each other. We also have a bunch of Kentucky crossbreeds here to give buyers a little variety. “
The drop in price follows the two-week Keeneland September drop, which saw very strong trading across the board.
“All sales are up very strongly this year, from OBS through us,” said Machowsky. “I think horse racing is very resilient through everything. After last year, confidence is returning a bit. “
During last year’s banner sale, 177 heads brought in $6,933,550 with an average of $39,173 and an average of $20,000. 2021 sale topped by $350,000 Triple Crown hero’s daughter American pharoah, purchased by Tom Beckerle. Following her is $300,000 Realistic jokes dirty.
“We expect another big drop in price,” Machowsky said. “California has been improving their breeding program, bringing new, solid stallions out here. Breeders have also invested in mares in Kentucky, from foals to Kentucky stallions and brought them out here. We expect the solid deal we had last year. “
