PR Special Fasig-Tipton July: Danzig’s Rapid Rise To Success

by | 07.11.2017 | 8:39am

The Paulick Report is once again pleased to offer its special print publication available online and on the grounds of the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Sale of Selected Yearlings.

This edition of the PR Special introduces a new series, “Success Beyond Expectations,” focusing on highly successful stallions who entered stud without great fanfare or a bulging record of racing accomplishments. Natalie Voss writes about three-time leading sire Danzig in this first installment.

On the subject of stallions, Frank Mitchell examines the prospects of some of this year's first-crop yearling sires in the Stallion Spotlight. In the Honor Roll focusing on a previous July Sale graduate, Chelsea Hackbarth recaps the progress made by the Quality Road colt Klimt from his purchase by Pete Bradley at Fasig-Tipton to his re-sale as a 2-year-old to his ascension as a Grade 1 winner.

The Back Ring Q&A subject is Liz Crow, a rising star in the bloodstock world whose Elite Sales – which she operates with Bradley Weisbord – debuted in Monday's Fasig-Tipton Horses of Racing Age Sale. Five to Watch provides a close look at some of the July Sale's top hips in this edition of the PR Special.

    As an aspiring Bloodstock agent at the time. Who was paying his dues, working for, under some of the best in the business here and aboard. IMO Danzig didn’t quite fit the “profile” as a stallion prospect. A moderate pedigree for a son of Northern Dancer and a very limited race career.

    I asked my father why he bought an original share hoping to gain some expert insight. His reply, explanation was short.
