Fasig-Tipton has cataloged 364 selected yearlings for the July Sale, to be held on Tuesday, July 9, at the company's Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Ky. The sale will begin at 10 a.m., Eastern.
“July continues to produce superior results for both buyers and sellers, and as result, our numbers and quality have increased again this year,” said Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning. “Fifteen of the current 20 leading sires in North America are represented by yearlings in this catalog, as well as an exciting group of entries by this season's first crop yearling sires.”
The July Sale continues to be a leading North American yearling sale in a number of performance categories, including percentage of Grade 1 winners, graded stakes winners, and stakes winners from horses sold. The sale is also the top-ranked North American yearling sale by percentage of 2-year-old winners from horses sold.
“The focus of the July Sale has always been precocious, athletic yearlings,” added Browning. “These strong physicals have translated to strong results on the race track, including this past weekend at the Belmont Stakes Racing Festival. Significant Form won the Grade 3 Intercontinental Stakes, Maryanorginger captured the Astoria Stakes in her career debut, and Joevia finished a strong third in the G1 Belmont Stakes.”
Nominations are also now open for Fasig-Tipton's popular July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale, which will be held the day prior to The July Sale, on Monday, July 8. Fasig-Tipton will accept nominations for the Horses of Racing Age Sale through late June.
“The July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale has quickly developed into North America's premier horses of racing age sale,” continued Browning. “Graduate success and the sale's advantageous timing ahead of the lucrative summer race meets have quickly turned this sale into of our most popular auctions. For sellers, this is an especially good venue to offer horses coming off a strong recent performance.”
The July Sale catalog may now be viewed online and will also be available via the Equineline catalog iPad app. Print catalogs will be available beginning June 12.
