Uncle Mo Filly Leads Third Session Of Fasig-Tipton October Sale

The third session of the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Yearlings Sale posted declines compared with last year’s comparable day of trade, but the numbers were consistent with the two sessions that preceded it, led by an Uncle Mo filly who sold for $350,000.

Wednesday’s session faced a tall challenge after last year’s third day was the strongest in a sale that produced a record gross and average sale price. The session finished with 244 horses sold for revenues of $7,990,900, down 26 percent from last year’s day-three gross of $10,804,100 from 261 sold. The average sale price declined 21 percent to $32,750, the median went unchanged at $12,000, and the buyback rate closed at 24 percent.

Despite the declines on Wednesday, the cumulative median of $15,000 after three days still tracked ahead of the final number of $12,000 during last year’s four-day sale.

“Day three of the October sale at Fasig-Tipton was very similar to the marketplace we’ve seen in the first two days,” said Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning. “It’s pretty consistent results. Overall for the first three days is slightly higher than last year. The buyback rate’s at an acceptable range.”

“I think we’ve seen that the overall market is pretty consistent, similar to what it was last year – solid, fair trade,” he continued. “Most of the horses are getting sold at reasonable levels, so we’re fairly pleased overall.”

The Fasig-Tipton October marketplace serves a wide range of buyers over the course of its catalog. One sector of the buying bench he said felt like was having a larger presence at this year’s sale was international buyers at the “under $20,000” level.

“It’s hard to evaluate until we get done at the end of the sale and you can have the accounting folks run the numbers and see how many horses got shipped or billed to certain addresses,” Browning said, “but it seems like a little bit higher level of activity.”

e5 Racing struck for the session-topper, going to $350,000 for Hip 933, an Uncle Mo filly out of the stakes-placed Unbridled’s Song mare Miss Luann. It was the second-biggest transaction of the sale through the end of the third session.

All three of Miss Luann’s foals to race are winners, including U.A.E. Group 3 winner Nomorerichblondes and stakes winner Sharp Kitty. Mike Ryan signed the ticket on the filly, as agent.

The session-topper was consigned by Romans Racing & Sales, agent.

Further down the page resides Canadian champion Marchfield, and G1 winners Duke of Marmalade, Vigliotto, Latin American, Gabina, Galetto, and Goldmark, as well as Canadian Broodmare of the Year Pico Teneriffe.

The Fasig-Tipton October sale concludes Friday, beginning at 10 a.m. Eastern.
