Fasig-Tipton's October Yearlings sale set new records

LEXINGTON, Ky.--Fasig-Tipton's Kentucky October Yearlings sale concluded Thursday, Oct. 27 with new sale records for gross, average and median.

Fasig Oct. saleFilly by Gun RunnerEvery sale but one in 2022 has established new records, and that sale in Timonium was plagued by terrible weather and the loss of buyers from Florida due to a hurricane.

A filly by leading second-crop sire Gun Runner (Hip 1364) topped the final session and sale when sold for $700,000 to Wesley Ward from the consignment of Claiborne Farm, agent.

The chestnut filly is the second foal out of the Speightstown mare No More Parties, an unraced full sister to Grade 1 winner Force the Pass.

The filly hails from the immediate family of Grade 1 winners Perfect Drift and Wonder Wheel and was bred in Kentucky by Colts Neck Stables.

She was the third most expensive filly ever sold at the Kentucky October Yearlings sale.

“Another remarkable sale concluded tonight,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “We were optimistic coming in because we knew the consignors and sellers had supported us with better quality horses than in the past. It’s thrilling to set records for gross, average and median, particularly considering the 2021 sale had such a dramatic increase from prior years as well.”


A WELL-RELATED filly by Uncle Mo (Hip 1429) was the session’s second most expensive offering, selling for $485,000 to Lauren Carlisle, agent, from the consignment of Anderson Farms.

The bay filly is out of the stakes placed Bernardini mare Pearl Turn, making her a three-parts sister to Canadian champion 2-year-old male Gretzky the Great, by Nyquist, also a graduate of this sale. and was bred in Ontario by the consignor.

“It’s become a legitimate sale for quality horses and quality buyers,” said Browning. “It has a great feel to it. It’s a great place to transact business and move horses at all price ranges. I couldn’t be any happier. We’re thrilled to build on the success of last year.”

Over the course of four days of selling, 1100 yearlings changed hands for a record $55,426,500, up 5.4 percent over the previous record gross set last year when 1153 yearlings sold for $52,607,500.

The average was $50,338, eclipsing by 10.4 percent the record set last year at $45,627.

The median rose 13.6% percent to a record $25,000 from the $22,000 benchmark set in 2021.

One-hundred-fifty-six (156) yearlings sold for $100,000 or more, up from 140 sold at or above that price in 2021.

The RNA rate was 18.7%.
