VA-BREDS AT FASIG-TIPTON WINTER MIXED

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.

DAY 3 RESULTS FROM FASIG-TIPTON OCTOBER

A Hill ‘n  Dale-bred Smart Strike filly set a new standard at the 2013 Fasig-Tipton October Fall Yearling Sale when selling to Borges Torrealba Holdings for $800,000 yesterday, a transaction that both helped propel the sale to record gains, and put a spotlight on the remarkable turnaround of an auction with a questionable future just four years ago.

At the end of the three day sale, the cumulative average at October stood at a sale-record $34,117, up 30.6% from last year’s average of $26,127. Likewise, the median of $17,000, up 33.3%, established a new benchmark. The depth of the market was underscored by the buy-back rate, which came in at a very low 16.2%.

TIMONIUM PRIME MARKET FOR VIRGINIA YEARLINGS?

In light of the overall success of the recently completed Keeneland September Yearling Sale that sold 2,774 yearlings and grossed over $280 million with an average of $102,220 (highest since 2007), breeders are understandably excited about the upcoming Midlantic September Sale that gets underway at Timonium on Monday, September 30.

While Virginia-bred results from Lexington were ho-hum with a few six figure exceptions, it seems like the overall supply and demand remains at a healthy balance. If that balance remains consistent (on the demand side), the next round of market results will verify that the Midlantic market is the best for yearlings from the region with the top tier being the only exception.

While the Virginia-breds were hampered in terms of average and lots sold by the lack of powerhouse consignments from the late Edward P. Evans, Audley Farm and Lazy Lane – stalwarts in terms of producing quality horses – the overall results reflected a market dominated by the reformatted sale (which consolidate quality up front) and the dominance of thirty highly commercial stallions.

Virginians produced few yearlings for those early blockbuster sessions and the Commonwealth’s remaining commercial breeders don’t typically breed to the top stallions with high stud fees.  If one only breeds a handful of select yearlings, such a high stakes gamble is best left to those with higher volume to stabilize eventual results.

Overall, there were 28 Virginia-breds consigned to the September Sale with 15 selling for $838,000 and an average of $55,866, well below the sale’s overall average of $102,220.  The high selling Va-bred was Audley’s colt by Arch, out of Pink Champagne by Awesome Again that sold for $200,000.  Only two other Virginia-bred yearlings were knocked down for six figure sale prices.

The overall market was also bolstered by newcomers including Blame (who posts both high and consistent numbers), Eskendereya (over $127,000), Quality Road (averaged over $119,000 and has one Va-bred entered at Timonium), Super Saver (over $106,000) and Lookin At Lucky (over $105,000).  Clearly the market’s love affair with new stallions is alive and well.

The Midlantic market remains well suited for Virginia breeders and Virginia horses.  The population is somewhat stable with Pennsylvania posting gains that compensate for Maryland’s and Virginia’s losses.  The value of Virginia-breds and the 100% owners bonus and Va-bred stakes program are well-known and appreciated by regional buyers while many Virginia breeders still enjoy top notch reputations for their propensity to produce high caliber racehorses.

Virginia breeders should fare well next week. — Glenn Petty
