Records fell Sunday night as the 2017 renewal of The New York Bred Sale closed with gains across the board, the result of a $500,000 colt and historic totals in gross, average, and median.

“We had a tremendous week,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “The New York Bred Sale was record-breaking in all aspects. There was a great feel to the sale both nights.”

The sale-topper, a colt by popular first-crop yearling sire Cairo Prince (Hip 589), lit up tote late in the session when sold for $500,000 at the Humphrey S. Finney Pavilion, a record for The New York Bred Sale (video). The colt was purchased by Ciaran Dunne’s Wave Bloodstock from the consignment of RFHF Bloodstock, agent.

Overall, 182 yearlings sold for a total of $16,214,000, good for an average of $89,088 and a reported median of $69,500 – all records for The New York Bred Sale. The gross represented an increase of 18.6% over last year’s sale; the average and median were up 15.3% and 15.8%, respectively. The RNA rate fell 7.3% from 2016.

A filly by More Than Ready (Hip 459) became the sale’s top-priced filly when sold for $315,000 to Bradley Thoroughbreds, agent for Sheep Pond Partners early in the session. Consigned by Bluewater Sales, Hip 459 was the third most expensive filly ever purchased at this sale.

“The good news is it was a really good week,” concluded Browning. “The bad news is it’s going to be tough to raise the bar on both sales next year.”

The market strength evidenced earlier this week during The Saratoga Sale continued Saturday evening during the first session of The New York Bred Sale, which saw increases in average and median over last year’s sale.

Tonight’s session saw 93 yearlings change hands for a total of $8,155,000 good for an average of $87,688 and a median of $75,000, increases of 13.5% and 25% respectively, over last year’s totals. The RNA rate for the session was down 8.3% from last year’s overall RNA rate.

“We hit the trifecta again tonight from a sales perspective,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “Average was up, median was up, RNA rate was down. I think we saw a continuation of the same trends as we saw in the select sale earlier in the week.”

The top price of the night was a colt by the late City Zip (Hip 371) from the consignment of Indian Creek, which was purchased for $350,000 by Mike Ryan, agent for Kindred Racing (video). That price tag is good for fourth most expensive colt in this sale’s history.

The top five hips of the session were by five different sires, including the late City Zip, successful young sires Maclean’s Music and Union Rags, popular first-crop yearling sire Cairo Prince, and established sire First Samurai.

Promisingly, the session gross of $8,155,000 eclipsed last year’s single-session half-way point of $6,836,250 by 19.3%.

“We’ve very pleased,” continued Browning. “On a two-night sale, or a multiple day sale, we don’t ever ‘declare victory’ until it’s over, but certainly it’s off to a good start.”

The New York Bred Sale continues August 13 at 6:30 PM.

New York Bred Yearlings Catalogue Now Available

NY Bred Sale - catalog_FINAL.jpgFasig-Tipton has catalogued 306 yearlings for its NY Bred Yearlings Sale, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, August 13 and 14.  Sessions will begin each evening at 6:30 p.m. in the Humphrey S. Finney Pavilion in Saratoga Springs, New York.

“This catalogue reflects the quality of the New York Bred program, which will offer $60 million in purses, incentives, and awards again in 2016,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “Racing opportunities for New York Breds are among the best in the nation, and at the N.Y. Bred Sale, buyers will find the type of horses that will take them to the heights of the program and beyond.”

Statistics recently released by The Blood-Horse MarketWatch rank the N.Y. Bred Sale highly among all major North American yearling sales in several categories.  The sale is currently a top-three ranked sale by average earnings per starter; percentage of winners sold with earnings of more than $150,000; and percentage of stakes winners from yearlings sold.

The catalogue may now be viewed online and within the Equineline sales catalogue app.  Print catalogues are now available from all Fasig-Tipton offices.
