Catalogue for The July Sale Now Online

Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 370 selected yearlings for The July Sale, to be held on Tuesday, July 11, at the company’s Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Kentucky.  The sale will begin at 10 am.

“Sellers have shown increased interest in July this year, resulting in a catalogue that is 23% larger than last year’s,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “We will kick the sale off with the Freshman Sire Showcase – offering a flashy group of individuals by this year’s first crop yearling sires – before transitioning into the more proven sire-populated segment of the catalogue.  There is a healthy mix of first crop sires and leading general sires, which should draw good interest.”

According to statistics from The BloodHorse Marketwatch, July is the top ranked major North American yearling sale by percentage of stakes winners, stakes horses, and two-year-old winners.  It is ranked third by percentage of graded stakes winners, trailing only Fasig-Tipton’s Saratoga Sale and 2020 Selected Yearlings Showcase.

This year’s front catalogue cover features recent Grade 1 winning July graduates Faiza and Chocolate Gelato.  Faiza, a four-time graded stakes winner at two and three, captured the Starlet S. (G1) in December.  Chocolate Gelato won the prestigious Frizette S. (G1) at two this past fall.  Featured on the back cover are Grade 1 winner and multiple graded stakes winner Kimari, as well as recent graded/group stakes winners Boardroom, Danse Macabre, Frosted Over, Fun and Feisty, Manny Wah, and Mimi Kakushi.  

“We focus on recruiting precocious and athletic yearlings to July,” noted Browning. “This approach results in very impressive performance statistics.”

Nominations are also now open for Fasig-Tipton’s July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale, which will be held the day prior to The July Sale, on Monday, July 10.  Fasig-Tipton will accept nominations up until sale time; however, to make the initial catalogue release, entries should be finalized by June 16.

The July Sale catalogue may now be viewed online and will also be available via the Equineline sales catalogue app.  Print catalogues are now available.
