Catalogue for 102nd Saratoga Sale now available
Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 235 selected yearlings for the 102nd Saratoga Sale, to be held on Monday and Tuesday, August 7 and 8, in Saratoga Springs, New York. Sessions will begin each evening at 6:30 pm in the Humphrey S. Finney Sales Pavilion.
“This year’s Saratoga catalogue is exceptional,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “Our numbers have increased by 10% over last year, and the quality of sire power, pedigrees, and physicals are at the top of this year’s yearling crop.”
The Saratoga Sale is once again the top ranked major North American yearling sale by percentage of Grade 1 winners and graded stakes winners according to statistics recently released by The BloodHorse MarketWatch.
Recent sales graduates are led by 2022 Horse of the Year Flightline, who capped his brilliant, undefeated career with an emphatic victory in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1). National Treasure, a graduate of the 2021 Saratoga Sale, became the sale’s latest classic winner in claiming this year’s Preakness S. (G1). Other prominent recent graduates include Blazing Sevens, winner of last year’s Champagne S. (G1) and second in this year’s Preakness S. (G1); and Exaulted, undefeated on turf and winner of the Shoemaker Mile S. (G1)
Songbird, an inductee into this year’s National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, is also a Saratoga Sale graduate.
“No yearling sale in the country offers a higher concentration of quality, and the success of our graduates validates that,” said Browning. “Saratoga has produced many of the best horses we have seen in our lifetimes.”
The catalogue may now be viewed online, and will also be available via the equineline sales catalogue app. Print catalogues are now available from all Fasig-Tipton offices.
