171 Yearlings Catalogued for Inaugural Turf Showcase, Presented by Woodbine Racetrack

turf17-mi.pngFasig-Tipton has catalogued 171 selected yearlings for the inaugural edition of The Turf Showcase, Presented by Woodbine Racetrack.  The sale will be held on Sunday, September 10 beginning at 4 pm at Fasig-Tipton’s Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Kentucky.

The Turf Showcase, Presented by Woodbine Racetrack, is the first North American sale consisting entirely of yearlings with “turf appeal.”  All yearlings catalogued have been approved on both conformation and pedigree by Fasig-Tipton.

“We are very pleased with the quality of this catalogue for the inaugural sale,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “These yearlings have sire power, depth of pedigree, and physical conformation that will appeal to a broad range of domestic and international buyers.”

“In North America this year, 40% of all graded stakes races will be conducted on turf, along with nearly 7,000 races,” continued Browning.  “Internationally, U.S. Breds continue to excel on the world’s biggest stages. This sale represents a perfect opportunity for buyers from around the globe to find yearlings that suit their racing programs – in a convenient, single sale session.”

The catalogue may now be viewed online and via the equineline sales catalogue app.  Print catalogues will be available in early August.
