July Sale Catalogue Grows

JulySale_catalogue_front_FINAL_pngFasig-Tipton has catalogued 349 selected yearlings for The July Sale, to be held on Tuesday, July 10, at the company’s Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Kentucky.  The sale will begin at 10 am.

“July was a very healthy market last year, and as a result, consignors have responded with increased quality and quantity,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “This year’s catalogue is our largest for July in nearly a decade, and boasts a significant uptick in sire power, as well.”

This year’s catalogue cover features 2017 Starlet S. (G1) winner DREAM TREE, who is undefeated at two and three.  She is the latest success story to come from July, which is annually a top ranked North American yearling sale by percentage of Grade 1 winners, graded stakes winners, and two-year-old winners.

Nominations are also open for Fasig-Tipton’s popular July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale, which will be held the day prior to The July Sale, on Monday, July 9. Fasig-Tipton will accept nominations for the Horses of Racing Age Sale through late June.

“The July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale was one of the strongest sales on the auction calendar last year,” continued Browning.  “The sale’s timing makes it very popular with buyers looking to load up their racing stables ahead of the major summer race meetings.”

The July Sale catalogue may now be viewed online and via the Equineline catalogue app.  Print catalogues will be available beginning June 12.
