The Paulick Report is on the grounds for the Fasig-Tipton October Yearlings Sale with the latest edition of the PR Special.
In this edition, bloodstock editor Joe Nevills adds context to The Jockey Club's proposed plan to cap stud books at 140 mares per year by speaking to industry leaders in Standardbred racing, which imposed a similar limit in 2009. Nevills examines why the cap was put in place, what happened in the industry in the decade that followed, and he looks at how some of the hypotheticals proposed in the discussion on the Thoroughbred side played out in harness racing.
The Stallion Spotlight shines on Crestwood Farm's Texas Red, the Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner whose first foals are yearlings this season. Ask Your Insurer discusses how blemishes in a broodmare's produce record can affect her coverage, while Ask Your Veterinarian covers how to get your horse to grow thicker soles.
In this issue's Honor Roll segment, Chelsea Hackbarth talks to Virginia breeder Ann Backer, who has seen local and national success this year with runners from her program, and plans to use the Virginia-bred and -certified programs to further expand her operation.
In the latest edition of INQUIRY, Nevills asks around the sales grounds learn the first favorite racehorses of bloodstock industry members. Finally, the First-Crop Sire Roundup lays out the stallions whose first yearlings are represented in the Fasig-Tipton October catalog.
