First held in 2013, the July Selected Horses of Racing Age sale has quickly become the leading market for ready-to-run racehorses.
The July Selected Horses of Racing Age sale offers a unique opportunity for racehorse owners to elevate their racing string with turnkey horses at the mid-point of the North American racing year, ahead of lucrative summer meets such as at Saratoga and Del Mar.
This sale catalogues selected racehorses with meaningful racing potential at a variety of levels, highlighted by an innovative enhanced catalogue featuring continuously updated pedigrees, Daily Racing Form past performances, lifetime race replays, Ragozin sheets, and Thoroughmanager past performances. Fasig-Tipton issues email alerts to potential buyers to keep them up-to-date of race entries, results, and workouts for all sale horses, as well as to notify of any late additions to the catalogue. Unlike a traditional catalogue, the print catalogue for this sale will be available on the sales grounds the week prior to sale in order to accommodate up-to-the-minute entries of racehorses with current form.
As of April 2019, graduates of the July Selected Horses of Racing Age sale have racked up more than 6,500 starts, including 66 stakes wins and more than $34,500,000 in earnings. 30 percent of graduates have gone on to become stakes horses for their new owners and include Grade 1 winners Bullards Alley and Wavell Avenue, along with graded stakes winners War Story, Ivy Bell, Fear the Cowboy, Squadron A, Go Noni Go, Dramedy, Point Piper, Fioretti, Insta Erma, Hillaby, Candyman E, Do Share, Belle Hill, and Nicodemus.
