Catalogue for The July Sale Now Online

Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 302 selected yearlings for The July Sale, to be held on Tuesday, July 12, at the company’s Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Kentucky.  The sale will begin at 10 am.

“We look forward to leading off yearling sales season with another strong July catalogue of precocious, athletic yearlings,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “The sale will begin with the Freshman Sire Showcase – a tremendous success last year following its reintroduction – and then transition into the more proven sire-laden segment of the catalogue.  We have very strong representation from leading general sires this year.”

According to statistics recently released by The BloodHorse Marketwatch, July is the top ranked major North American yearling sales by percentage of stakes winners, winners, and two-year-old winners.  It is ranked second by percentage of graded stakes winners and earners of $150,000 or more, only trailing Fasig-Tipton’s Saratoga Sale in these categories. The sale is ranked third by percentage of Grade 1 winners.

This year’s catalogue cover features recent graduates of both the July Sale and 2020 Selected Yearlings Showcase, Fasig-Tipton’s only selected yearling sale in Kentucky that year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Featured on the front cover are Grade 1 winners KALYPSO, CYBERKNIFE, GRACE ADLER, and JACK CHRISTOPHER.  The back cover features another 15 graded stakes winners, including BELL’S THE ONE, FORBIDDEN KINGDOM, LONE ROCK, SMILE HAPPY, SPECIAL RESERVE, and TIZ THE BOMB.

“July is the sale to find athletes and the stats bear that out,” noted Browning.  “Moreover, one only needs to look at this year’s catalogue cover to see the strength of graduates generated from Fasig-Tipton’s yearling selection process.”

Nominations are also now open for Fasig-Tipton’s July Selected Horses of All Ages Sale, which will be held the day prior to The July Sale, on Monday, July 11.  Traditionally the sale offered just horses of racing age, but this year has been expanded to include breeding stock.  Fasig-Tipton will accept nominations up until sale time; however, to make the initial catalogue release, entries should be finalized by June 17.

The July Sale catalogue may now be viewed online and will also be available via the Equineline catalogue app.  Print catalogues will be available by June 17.
