Fasig-Tipton Confirms "International Focus"

Thursday, 29th April 2010

Fasig-Tipton chief operating officer Dan Pride told the International Equine Summit that the auction company "has been behind Keeneland in terms of exploring international markets, but is moving in that direction" reported bloodhorse.com. Pride noted 5 of the 7 of the mares sold for US$1 million or more at the Fasig-Tipton November sale last year "went to foreign buyers": 3 from Japan, 1 from Australia & 1 from Canada. And at the company's recent 2YOs-in-training sale in Florida, 25% of the lots sold went to non-US buyers. Pride confirmed: "This is something we are focusing on. You have to build relationships & find sponsorships."
