Fasig-Tipton Horse Sales in Saratoga
Fasig-Tipton was founded in 1898 by William B. Fasig and Edward A. Tipton as an auction house for the sale of thoroughbred horses. The firm, now owned by a company based in Dubai, has offices in Kentucky, Maryland, Texas, Florida, and Saratoga Springs, NY.
The Saratoga Springs office is located less than a half mile from the racetrack. The annual sales take place at the Humphrey S. Finney Pavilion, which houses a small auditorium and an oblong walking ring the horses are presented on.
There are three sales scheduled for 2019 in Saratoga Springs.
The Saratoga Sale has been leading the racing industry for almost a century. The sale ranked #1 by percentage of Grade 1 stakes-winner and stakes-winners among all North American yearling sales.
