After Huge Sale in 2014 Can Lexington Hit the Jackpot Again?

LEXINGTON, KY – What do you do for an encore?

That seemed to be the question on everyone’s mind yesterday at the Fasig-Titpton sales grounds as buyers, sellers and the sales staff were preparing for the opening night of the 2015 Lexington Selected yearling sale.

The 2014 sale was one of the most remarkable in the sports’ history. Coming in, the Lexington team had felt that no bad news was good news, that the best they could expect was to be even over previous years or be up by a fraction. Then came 2014 when opening night was up 21.6 percent and the overall sale was up 10.6 percent. For the breeders and for the consignors, it was the best news they had had in years.

Now what?
