Fasig-Tipton Consolidates Saratoga Fall and Midlantic December Mixed Sales for 2020

August 11, 2020

Due to the current travel restrictions put in place by the state of New York to combat the spread of COVID-19, Fasig-Tipton will not conduct The Saratoga Fall Sale as originally scheduled on October 20 in Saratoga Springs, New York. Instead, for this year, Fasig-Tipton will combine the auction with its Midlantic December Mixed and Horses of Racing Age sale, which will now be held over two days on December 7 and 8.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s New York Travel Advisory requires any individuals that travel to New York – from any of the states currently listed – to complete a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival in the state. There are currently 35 states/territories listed under this travel advisory, including horse racing regions Kentucky, Florida, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, California, and Texas.

“The current travel advisory requirements make it virtually impossible for many buyers from out of state to attend an auction in Saratoga,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “We do not know what the duration or scope of the New York Travel Advisory will be in October. Combining our Saratoga Fall and Midlantic December sales into a two-day auction in Maryland is the prudent and logical course of action at this point in time.”

The Midlantic December Mixed and Horses of Racing Age sale will be conducted on Monday and Tuesday, December 7-8, at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland. Entries for the main catalogue will close on September 18. The entry deadline for the Horses of Racing Age Supplement is November 13.

Entry Forms are available at fasigtipton.com.
