The 2016 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Fall Mixed Sale showed a two percent decline in gross and three percent decline in average over the same sale in 2015 on Monday. This year saw 164 horses sold for $2,780,600, as compared to 162 sold for $2,833,800 in 2015. The sale average on Monday was $16,955, down from $17,493 last year.
One area that did see improvement was the buy-back rate. In 2015, 138 horses were unsold at the end of the day for a buy-back of 46 percent, as compared to 97 this year, closing at 37 percent.
Leading the sale was Hip 85, the 3-year-old Coronation Street, by Street Cry. The unraced filly out of a Malibu Moon daughter is believed to be in foal to Alpha, and sold for $150,000 to Chester Broman from the Sequel New York consignment.
The highest-priced weanling was Hip 200, a daughter of Into Mischief who sold to Linda Rice (agent for Sheila Rosenblum's Lady Sheila Stable) for $125,000 to mark the second-highest price in the sale.
