Catalogue for 101st Saratoga Sale Now Available

Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 216 selected yearlings for the 101st Saratoga Sale, to be held on Monday and Tuesday, August 8 and 9, in Saratoga Springs, New York.  Sessions will begin each evening at 6:30 pm in the Humphrey S. Finney Sales Pavilion.

“We are very bullish on the quality of this year’s catalogue,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “Superior sire power, elite pedigrees, and the outstanding conformation that buyers expect at Saratoga will be on offer.  We have attracted an increased number of siblings to current and recent graded stakes winners this year, as well.”

The Saratoga Sale is once again the top ranked major North American yearling sale by percentage of Grade 1 winners and graded stakes winners according to statistics recently released by The BloodHorse MarketWatch.

Recent sales graduates are led by the brilliant Grade 1 winners FLIGHTLINE and BLEECKER STREET, undefeated on dirt and turf, respectively.  FLIGHTLINE has won his first four starts by a combined 44 lengths, including victories in the prestigious Metropolitan H. (G1) and Malibu S. (G1).  BLEECKER STREET’s victory in last month’s New York S. (G1) was her seventh career victory and fourth graded stakes win this year. MARACUJA, winner of last year’s Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) at Saratoga, and QUEEN GODDESS, winner of the American Oaks (G1) at Santa Anita are other recent top level graduates.

“For more than a century, the Saratoga Sale has sold the sport’s biggest stars,” added Browning.  “It is not only a sale to find a Grade 1 winner, but horses that are truly generational.”

The catalogue may now be viewed online, and will also be available via the equineline sales catalogue app.  Print catalogues are now available from all Fasig-Tipton offices.
