Following the monumental success of the Fasig-Tipton select yearling sale earlier this week, a sale that saw gains in gross sales and in average and median sales price, and at which 14 horses sold for more than $1 million, a record for this sale, attention will now turn to the company’s sale of preferred New York-bred yearlings, set for this coming Sunday and Monday.

On Friday night, New York Thoroughbred Breeders will host its annual awards event, for the first time during the racing season. That afternoon, Saratoga Race Course will run three stakes races for New York-bred horses, each of them worth $125,000.

Tate, as he’s called in the barn, has earned nearly $720,000. He’s run 32 times, winning 10 times, finishing second nine times, and finishing third twice. He was bred and is trained by Michelle Nevin, who co-owns him with Little Red Feather Racing.
