The under tack show is scheduled for Monday, March 26, beginning at 9 am.

“This is an exciting catalogue,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “There is strong sire power, quality individuals at a variety of price levels, as well as some exciting new faces in the consignor ranks coming to Gulfstream for the first time.  Additionally, this year’s sale is being held during Florida Derby week, which will bring extra buzz to the auction.”

Featured on the front cover of this year’s catalogue are current undefeated Grade 1 winner and Kentucky Oaks candidate DREAM TREE, and MOR SPIRIT, dominant winner of last year’s Metropolitan H. (G1).  The back cover features AUDIBLE, eye-catching 5 ½ length winner of the Holy Bull S. (G2) on February 3rd, as well as current graded stakes winners MOPOTISM, FOURSTAR CROOK, and SHAKHIMAT.

“Since conducting our first sale at Gulfstream in 2015, the racetrack success of our graduates has been nothing short of remarkable,” continued Browning.  “In just a short time, Gulfstream grads have claimed many of the sport’s biggest races, including the Kentucky Derby, Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, Florida Derby, Met Mile, Del Mar Futurity, and both the Futurity and Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos.  Most recently, 2017 sale grad AUDIBLE romped in the Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream – 11 months after he breezed over the same dirt race track 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 from Fasig-Tipton offices by Monday, February 19.
