Construction is underway on new 2,580 square-foot barn being erected by the renowned thoroughbred auction company Fasig-Tipton.
The barn is being built on the corner of Case and George streets in Saratoga Springs, not far from Saratoga Race Course. The project is being managed by the LA Group. Officials said it will be ready for use at the 2018 yearling sales this summer.
The barn will contain 19 stalls and the building will compliment the existing structures across the street. The plans also call for sidewalks, street lights, trees and decorative fencing on the 0.43-acre lot owned by Fasig-Tipton.
