Success Starts at Saratoga: Lawn Jockeys

LawnJockeys2.pngThe lawn jockeys in front of the Humphrey S. Finney Sales Pavilion at Fasig-Tipton in Saratoga are a longstanding tradition recognizing a selection of Grade/Group 1 Fasig-Tipton graduates sold at The Saratoga Sale and New York Bred Yearlings sale.

Each year, the lawn jockeys are painted in the silks of some of Fasig-Tipton’s top graduates and placed in front of the pavilion to greet visitors to the sales grounds. This year’s lawn jockey class features the silks of seven recent Grade/Group 1 winners, including (clockwise from top left):
