Listen: Saratoga, Saratoga Sal, President Trump discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
"Stormy liberal all sensational and all graduates of this phasing tipton sale basic different president boyd browning stop stop by the broadcast position just before we came on the air at seven o'clock and had a chance to catch up with him and ask him about this particular sale and what it means to face it boy the ninety ninth phasing different saratoga sal is upon us. It's a sale that has been ranked number one in so many important statistical categories as for a very very long time. What's the key. How do you keep it going year in and you're out well. I think the key is honestly the men and women that have the courses the owners and the consigners continue to bring yes quality product year in and year out they know there's going to be a vibrant and active marketplace here. It's a great atmosphere to sell a horse surrounded by greg racing <hes> historic thin and you and storage setting and it's basically just a high level of confidence amongst both buyers and sellers they can expect a best and their graduates misao continue to run a racetrack so when when we sure feel very confident about the the catalog that we've put together this year and and how we've got a real problem the two or three years down the road with we need a bigger cover with so many horses that are happy small pictures of horses on the cover because there's so many on there but it feels really good with numbers of the quality. You got a pretty good trio on the cover this year. Oh yeah you know it really is and it's kind of fun to have. Have you know th at the diversity of quality in terms of not quality that diverse of accomplishments <hes>. You've got a horse wonderful two year old. You've got a three year old filly eliana turf and then you got an older co on tariff to so you know it just goes to show you. There's a wide variety of courses available at saratoga and you know it's whatever if you're looking for whether it goes to win the breeders cup as a juvenile or hopefully the derby or another classic or you know having worse. It is a long-term perform on the grass thing. We've got something for everybody. In jenin each catalog the human in the equine stars are certainly an element of making this successful and as you said maybe the key element but there there has to be somewhat of a phase tipton philosophy when it comes to putting this together. What is it well. I think it all begins with with the physical horse. I think we've made the same we built to sail in our reputation. Saratoga is for good good high-quality individuals. <hes> we're gonna start with outstanding individuals and we're going to find as much pedigree to go around the individuals as we possibly can so that's our we're trying to find good individuals well-balanced well-balanced horses that we think are going to have a higher likelihood of turning out to be race horses and and certainly you know the pedigree's factor but we don't look for <hes> <hes> you know a high pedigree as an average individual because it doesn't work an environment in which we're selling <hes>. We have a very discerning group of buyers. I think most people do it to operate in the marketplace and and you've got to put a horse at that they feel comfortable. Buying walks good has good conformation and and has a good mind. This is not the only sale that phasing tipton has has it has been traditionally very very good. You have the gulfstream sale in march to your training sale. Yeah the july sale which precedes this one and then you have the november sale after the breeders cup you think about all of those sales and all the success that you've had over the past several years with those <hes>. What things are you most proud while i think i would i hope we all of the sales are good. I mean they serve different areas in different markets. I think the thing that we would be most proud of as an organization on most proud of our our commitment commitment to customer service. <hes> you know we have the same crew that works saratoga. That's going to work the december sale it to mountain. That's gonna work sales in california. We've got one team and we hope it's the a team. I think it's our commitment to the industry. <hes> we're gonna try to do the right thing every day. <hes> there's gonna be a few bumps in the road and there's going to be a few challenges. It always emerging any business <hes> but i think that you know we certainly have a commitment to the industry and commitment to customer service and i think the other thing is is."
