Catalogue Now Available for The Gulfstream Sale

gulfstream_sale_cover_front_FINAL.pngFasig-Tipton has catalogued 162 entries for The Gulfstream Sale of Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training, to be held on Wednesday, March 1, in Hallandale Beach, Florida. The sale, which be conducted in Gulfstream Park’s walking ring, will begin at 4 pm.

The under tack show is scheduled for Monday, February 27, beginning at 10 am.

“This sale has a lot of momentum coming off two highly successful renewals since moving to Gulfstream Park in 2015,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “This catalogue reflects that momentum, with increased numbers and outstanding quality.”

This year’s catalogue cover features 2015 sale graduate NYQUIST, who decisively captured last year’s G1 Kentucky Derby to become the latest Classic success for The Gulfstream Sale.

“There is no better advertisement for a sale than selling the Kentucky Derby winner,” continued Browning. “It’s a great testament to the quality of horses our consignors offer at Gulfstream, and to the success that buyers are finding from purchasing these horses off a proven dirt track.  Prior to winning the Kentucky Derby, NYQUIST won the G1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream – thirteen months after he had performed over the very same racetrack in our under tack show.”

The catalogue is now available online and will also be available via the Equineline sales catalogue app. Print catalogues will be available by Monday, January 30.

Reigning Eclipse Champion 2YO Filly Songbird did not rest on her laurels for a moment in her sophomore campaign. Racing exclusively in graded company last term, Songbird dispatched all comers but one, winning her first seven starts by a combined 38 ½ lengths. She tallied victories in the Santa Anita Oaks (G1), Coaching Club American Oaks (G1), Alabama S. (G1), Cotillion S. (G1), Las Virgenes S. (G2), Summertime Oaks (G2), and Santa Ysabel S. (G3). Her shortest margin of victory was 3 ¾ lengths, recorded in both the Santa Anita Oaks and Santa Ysabel S. at her home base of Santa Anita. Her lone loss was to three-time Eclipse Champion and current finalist for Champion Older Female Beholder, who edged Songbird by the barest nose in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) after a prolonged battle of more than a furlong.

Songbird collected $2,210,000 in purse money last year for owner Fox Hill Farm. That sum was good for best earnings by a female in North America last year, and fourth of either sex, behind only the three current finalists for Champion 3YO Male.

Songbird was purchased by Fox Hill Farm at the 2014 Saratoga Sale from the consignment of Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales Agency. She is campaigned by Fox Hill Farm and trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. Songbird was bred in Kentucky by John Antonelli.
