Fasig-Tipton’s Dennis Lynch and top jockey agent Tony Matos, who has the book for the talented young apprentice rider Evin Roman, were the guests on the sixth installment of “Riders Up!” with Frank Lyons and John Gaver on Sunday, July 9. If you missed the 7:00 A.M. Eastern broadcast, you can catch the replay HERE.
Dennis Lynch previewed the July 10 Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale at Fasig-Tipton as well as the July Selected Yearling Sale, which will commence at the company’s Newtown Pike facility in Lexington, Kentucky on July 11.
