For two days each summer during the Saratoga Throroughbred Racing season, Saratoga is home to Fasig Tipton Yearling Sales. Horse owners from all over the world converge to the Fasig Tipton Pavillion to buy the next Secretariat or I'll Have Another.
The little secret many folks are not aware of is that ANYONE can attend the sales. You don't need to be an owner and you don't need to show your balance sheet to walk in the door. What is better yet, it is free to enter the auction paviliion. Watch as the yearling horses sell from anywhere from $100,000 to 1 million plus. Just make sure you don't scratch your nose or the spotters might mistake you for a buyer.
In this video, we take you through what to expect if you attend an evening at the horse sales. From people watching, horse viewing and cocktail drinking, the Fasig Tipton Yearling Sales is a perfect way to spend an August evening.
