LEXINGTON, Ky.--Due to the ice storm currently forecasted for Lexington, Ky., Fasig-Tipton officials are pushing back the start date of next week’s Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale to Tuesday, Feb. 8.
The two-day auction was originally scheduled to take place on Monday and Tuesday, Feb.7 and 8, but will now be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb.8 and 9.
Hips 1-300 will now be offered in the Tuesday session. Hips 301 – through the supplement (which currently goes through hip 606), will be offered on Wednesday. Both sessions will begin at 10 am.
“Our area is currently under an Ice Storm Warning from tomorrow morning through Friday morning, and in the interests of safety we have decided to push the sale back by one day,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “This will ensure that horses and sale participants will have ample time to arrive on the sales grounds and begin inspections when conditions are safe to do so.”
