Led by the $360,000 paid by Gainesway for the 7-year-old mare Hidden Expression, Fasig-Tipton concluded its winter mixed sale Feb. 10 on a solid note, despite the formidable weather conditions that existed in Lexington during the two-day auction.

Fasig-Tipton reported 406 horses grossed $13,527,500, with an average price of $33,319 and a median of $16,000. The 99 horses that did not sell represented 19.6% of the total through the ring.

The numbers are well below those posted at the 2013 auction that was boosted by a reduction of horses from Eugene Melnyk’s Winding Oaks breeding operation. The 2013 sale saw 245 horses bring a total $13,781,700 for an average price of $56,252 and a $15,000 median price.

Comparisons of the 2013 and 2014 sales aren’t meaningful considering the strength of the Melnyk consignment in 2013 and increased size of the 2014 catalog.
