We are once again pleased to offer an exclusive print publication, available here and on the sales grounds of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training, kicking off today at 2 p..m.

In this edition of the PR Special, features editor Natalie Voss talks with some of the men and women who have helped build a legacy of horsemanship for the Mid-Atlantic region, including Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard, retired television commentator and trainer Charlsie Cantey and John Williams, who transformed from pupil to mentor for many of today's horse industry professionals in the United States.

In the Honor Roll of FT Midlantic sale graduates who have gone on to a successful racing career, Chelsea Hackbarth looks at the recent Grade 2 American Turf Stakes winner Maraud, whose half brother won the same Kentucky Derby day race in 2017.

Dr. Bill Gilsenan of Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital answers your questions in the Ask Your Veterinarian feature, explaining the value of echocardiograms, or heart scans. Frank Mitchell profiles the young Maryland stallion Super Ninety Nine, which Country Life Farm and Spendthrift Farm are hoping will follow in the footsteps of a successful previous collaboration, Malibu Moon, and Mitchell also takes a look at some of the sale's top hips.
