by | 08.07.2018 | 12:36pm

The Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale of Selected Yearlings continues tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Humphrey S. Finney Pavilion in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and the Paulick Report is pleased to offer the second of two PR Special newsletters for distribution both on the sale grounds and online

In this edition of the PR Special, features editor Natalie Voss examines some of the famous names on the Saratoga stakes schedule – and introduces us to some of the people, horses and places from which they are derived.

In the Stallion Spotlight feature, bloodstock editor Joe Nevills takes a look at Liam's Map, one of several highly regarded first-crop sires with yearlings selling at Saratoga, and, in the Honor Roll, racing editor Chelsea Hackbarth provides details behind agent Mike Ryan's purchase at the 2016 Saratoga Sale of Rushing Fall, who would go on to win the G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. In addition to Nevills' Five to Watch – a look at some of the sale's top hips – veterinarian Kathleen Paasch, in Rood and Riddle's Ask Your Veterinarian, examines advantages and disadvantages of swimming yearlings as preparation for auction.
