Fasig-Tipton Executive Lynch Dies At Age 68

Dennis Lynch, Fasig-Tipton‘s senior account executive, died Friday at age 68 after a long battle with cancer, Thoroughbred Daily News reports.

A native of Ashland, Ky., and graduate of the University of Kentucky, Lynch held jobs at Buck Pond Farm and at BloodHorse magazine out of school, also consigning horses at auctions, before moving to California where he eventually founded Lynch Bloodstock. His most notable purchase as an agent was champion Gilded Time, who he landed for television producer David Milch.

While in California, Lynch was also a key player in the formation of Barretts Equine Sales, which became the state’s primary local auction house until 2018.

Lynch returned to Kentucky to join the Fasig-Tipton staff in 1995, recruiting both horses and buyers and serving as one of the company’s top national yearling inspectors.

Lynch kept up a blog about his battle with cancer, which can be read here.
