Fasig-Tipton and Keeneland Collaborate on November Sales Dates
In a collaborative effort to provide stability and the strongest market possible, Fasig-Tipton and Keeneland today announced they have established consistent dates for their respective November auctions, which occur immediately after the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. Beginning November 2024, the Fasig-Tipton November Sale will be held on the first Monday following the Breeders’ Cup and Keeneland’s November Breeding Stock Sale will begin on Tuesday. This Monday/Tuesday schedule will remain in place regardless of the location of the Breeders’ Cup. The 2024 Breeders’ Cup will be held at Del Mar on Nov. 1-2.
This year, the Fasig-Tipton November auction will be held Tuesday, Nov. 7, and Keeneland November will open Wednesday, Nov. 8.
“Keeneland and Fasig-Tipton share a commitment to do what is best for the health and vibrancy of our industry,” Keeneland President and CEO Shannon Arvin said. “This schedule not only provides clarity, but capitalizes on the momentum from Breeders’ Cup, maximizes the opportunity for international buyers to participate and creates positive energy surrounding both sales. We’ve listened to the thoughtful feedback from our clients and members of the Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association and worked to determine an outcome that is beneficial for everyone.”
“Both sales companies share a vision and commitment to serve the marketplace in the most effective manner,” Fasig-Tipton President and CEO Boyd Browning Jr. said. “This announcement provides all industry participants a defined and consistent schedule for the November sales.”
