Maryland Dec Mixed: Average Down 12.3%
In Maryland, gross receipts plunged 43.1% while the average dipped a less severe 12.3% & the median fell 14.3% at the 1-day Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December mixed sale at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. Overall 186 lots sold for US$1,169,400 at an US$6,287 & a median US$3,000. Fasig-Tipton's Mason Grasty told bloodhorse.com: "Based on recent American & European sales, it was hard to have high expectations. There was demand for Pennsylvania-breds, but there weren't as many pin-hookers as normal looking for weanlings to buy."
