Yearling Numbers Increase for The July Sale; Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale Moved to Monday Evening

Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 347 selected yearlings for The July Sale, to be held on Tuesday, July 12 in Lexington, Kentucky.

As a result of the increased numbers in the yearling catalogue, the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale will now be held the evening of Monday, July 11, preceding the yearling sale that will take place the next day beginning at 10 am.

“The continued growth of the July yearling catalogue, coupled with the popularity of the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale has prompted the schedule change,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “We’ll offer a quality group of Horses of Racing Age on Monday evening as our opening act, and then the July Selected Yearling Sale will take center stage the following morning.”

The July yearling sale is coming off a 2015 renewal that saw the highest average and median for the sale since 2007, resulting in a larger catalogue for the third consecutive year.

“This year’s catalogue is up in numbers, but just as importantly, boasts increased quality – including yearlings by current top ranked sires TAPIT, UNCLE MO, CURLIN, CONGRATS, CITY ZIP and MALIBU MOON,” Browning noted.

The July Sale, which counts Grade 1 winners NOBLE BIRD, DORTMUND, BIRDATTHEWIRE and STREET FANCY as recent graduates, is the first of Fasig-Tipton’s Selected Yearling Sales to be conducted this summer. Statistics recently released by The Blood-Horse MarketWatch once again rank these selected sales at the top of all major North American yearling sales by percentage of Grade 1 winners, graded stakes winners and stakes winners from horses sold.

The July Sale catalogue may now be viewed online and via the Equineline catalogue app. Print catalogues will be available by June 14.

Fasig-Tipton will also continue to accept nominations for the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale through the month of June.
