Golden Lad Colt Sets Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December Mixed Sale Record Price

The 2019 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December Mixed and Horses of Racing Age sale held in Timonium, Md. was marked by across-the-board increases and an all-time sale record high price. With 367 horses of all ages cataloged, the sale was bolstered by the dispersal of Joseph Besecker.

Maryland-bred stakes winner Laddie Liam (Hip 302) set a new sale record when sold to DJ Stable for $450,000. The 2-year-old colt by Golden Lad was offered by Northview Stallion Station (David Wade), agent for Dispersal of Joseph Besecker.

Laddie Liam was a gate-to-wire winner last time out, capturing the Maryland Juvenile Futurity on Dec. 7 at Laurel Park by 4 1/2 lengths. To date, Laddie Liam has won three of five starts this year at two and earned $128,556 for Besecker, who purchased the colt at last year's Midlantic December Mixed sale for $14,500. READ MORE
