Saratoga Sale Catalogue Now Online; Four Eclipse Champions Featured on Cover

Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 252 selected yearlings for its 96th Saratoga Sale, to be held August 8-9 in Saratoga Springs, New York.  Sessions will begin each evening at 6:30 p.m in the Humphrey S. Finney Pavilion.

This year’s catalogue cover features Saratoga’s four 2015 Eclipse Champion sale graduates.

“Saratoga produced four Eclipse Champions in 2015 – AMERICAN PHAROAH, SONGBIRD, STELLAR WIND, and TEPIN – more than any other individual Thoroughbred auction in the world,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “And, not only are these horses great champions, they are arguably some of the most accomplished racehorses we’ve seen in some time – a testament to the type of quality our consignors offer at Saratoga.”

In data recently released by The BloodHorse MarketWatch, The Saratoga Sale once again ranks at the top of all major North American yearling sales by percentage of Grade 1 winners, Graded Stakes Winners, and Stakes Winners produced from horses sold.

“Another year of industry leading results both on the racetrack and in the sale ring in 2015 have attracted significant interest from sellers to Saratoga again in 2016,” continued Browning.  “Buyers will be presented with a tremendous group of yearlings when they arrive this year at the ‘Spa.’ ”

The catalogue may now be viewed online.  Print catalogues will be available from all Fasig-Tipton offices beginning July 1.
