TIMONIUM, Md.--Fasig-Tipton's Midlantic two-year-olds in training sale, May 17-18, saw record breaking sales, including over 30 percent of the youngsters selling for $100,000 or more.
"It was a great sale," said Marshall Silverman of New Freedom, Pa.,, who,, as agent, sold six. "Fasig-Tipton did a great job. There was plenty of money there. It was a super, super sale. There was a low RNA.
RNA means reserve not achieved, which means the horse didn't sell.
Silverman said the sale bodes well for future sales.
"A lot of people did pretty well," said Silverman. "That means they'll have to reinvest that money or Uncle Sam will take it. I look forward to the yearling sale this fall to be a good sale. I have about 50 going to that sale."
The Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling sale is scheduled for Oct. 4-5.
Silverman said he was overall pleased with the way his sales went.
"I thought a couple could have brought a little more, but in general they all brought about what they were worth," said Silverman, who sold a colt by Unified for $150,00 with the rest of his sales averaging in the $50,000 area.
