Got a million dollars burning a hole in your pocket? Head over to the annual Fasig Tipton New York Bred Yearlings sale to score yourself a new thoroughbred. Each summer there are two auctions that span two nights and are open to the public. The 2018 NY-Bred sale saw a record sale topper for the third consecutive year, with one horse fetching $600,000, and the more prestigious Saratoga Sale saw a $1,350,000 horse.
