Enhanced Catalogue, Virtual Inspection Videos for Selected Yearlings Showcase Now Online
The Enhanced Catalogue, featuring Virtual Inspection Videos, for next week’s Fasig-Tipton Selected Yearlings Showcase may now be viewed online.
A popular staple of Fasig-Tipton’s November and July Horses of Racing Age sales, the Enhanced Catalogue has been upgraded with a fresh look and new features that are being debuted for the Selected Yearlings Showcase.

The Enhanced Catalogue provides an individual webpage for each yearling catalogued in the sale. Featured prominently on this page are “Virtual Inspection Videos” (walking videos), which provide a profile conformation shot, as well as walking footage from the side, front, and rear.
Prospective buyers have the option of watching a “Virtual All Show,” which will play all walking videos on a continuous loop. Videos may be “favorited” either in the index, or on the video itself, to create a short list of hips that can then be shared via Email, Facebook, or Twitter. Buyers may also utilize the index to filter the catalogue by sire, dam, consignor, or region foaled. The index will generate a “short list” of hips that matches the buyer’s desired criteria. When a user sorts by consignor, they will be taken to a consignor branded page and the index will offer a “Consignor All Show.”
The Enhanced Catalogue also offers a new feature named “Consignor Insights.” Located next to the walking videos, Consignor Insights offer information supplied by a yearling’s consignor that may not always be immediately obvious on a catalogue page – information often traditionally found in a consignor’s “front man” book.
Other features offered include conformation photos, stallion register information, and a pedigree updates tab.
“When designing the upgraded Enhanced Catalogue, our goal was to provide the information and tools needed by buyers who cannot attend a sale in person,” said Max Hodge, Fasig-Tipton’s Vice President of Client Services. “The Enhanced Catalogue provides valuable resources that complement the on-site buyer experience.”
Fasig-Tipton will continue to add Virtual Inspection Videos and Consignor Insights in the coming days as they are submitted.
The Selected Yearlings Showcase will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, September 9 and 10, at Fasig-Tipton’s Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Kentucky. The sale will begin each day at 10 am. Print catalogues are available from all Fasig-Tipton offices. The catalogue may also be viewed via the equineline sales catalogue app, which also has links to each yearling’s Enhanced Catalogue page.
For buyers attending the sale in person, a list of registration requirements and COVID-19 Protocols may be found at fasigtipton.com. Fasig-Tipton will offer online bidding and phone bidding services, as well.
