Lexington, KY---The schedule for the 2015 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale has been changed slightly from what was originally planned. The auction will now begin on Monday, Oct. 5 and continue through Friday, Oct. 9, with an evening start time for all five sessions.
The sale had originally been scheduled for Oct. 6-10.
“We feel the sale is better aligned with The Red Mile’s Grand Circuit racing calendar this way,” said co-manager Randy Manges. “It will now start on the night just prior to the second week of racing, and end on the night before the Kentucky Futurity,” he continued.
The first week of Red Mile Grand Circuit racing runs from Wednesday, Sept. 30 through Saturday, Oct. 3, with a 7 p.m. post time. The second week, Wednesday, Oct. 7 through Saturday, Oct. 10, features the traditional 1 p.m. post.
The Lexington Selected Sale, held at the state-of-the-art Fasig-Tipton Pavilion on Newtown Pike, has been harness racing’s leading point of yearling commerce since its inception, with a higher per horse average than any other sale.
