Catalogue for The July Sale Now Online
Fasig-Tipton has catalogued 286 selected yearlings for The July Sale, to be held on Tuesday, July 9, at Newtown Paddocks in Lexington, Kentucky. The sale will begin at 10 AM.

“We look forward to kicking off yearling sales season with another strong group of well conformed, mature yearlings in July,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “The sale continues to produce remarkable performance numbers that cannot be overlooked by any serious buyer.”

According to statistics from The Bloodhorse MarketWatch, The July Sale is once again a top ranked major North American yearling sale in a number of performance categories.  It is ranked first by percentage of stakes winners, stakes horses, and two-year-old winners sold, and ranked second by percentage of Grade 1 winners and graded stakes winners sold, behind only Fasig-Tipton’s Saratoga Sale.

This year’s front cover features recent Grade 1 winning July Sale graduates Carson’s Run, Candied, and Geaux Rocket Ride, while the back cover showcases additional recent graded stakes winners Accidental Hero, Chop Chop, Danse Macabre, Stay Hot, Super Chow, and Three Technique.

As in previous years, this year’s catalogue includes the Freshman Sire Showcase (Hips 1-88), highlighting the offspring of first-crop yearling sires, including those stallions’ Stallion Registerpages, courtesy of The BloodHorse.

The catalogue also features yearlings by top general sires Into Mischief, Quality Road, Goldencents, Practical Joke, Justify, Constitution, Uncle Mo, Munnings, and American Pharoah.

“While much of the focus in July tends to be on the first yearlings of Freshman sires, the proven sire representation this year is very strong,” noted Browning.

Nominations are also now open for the July Selected Horses of Racing Age sale, to be held the day before the yearling sale, on Monday, July 8. Fasig-Tipton will accept nominations up until sale time; however, to be included in the catalogue’s initial release, entries should be finalized by June 14.

The July Sale catalogue may now be viewed online and will be available via the equineline sales catalogue app. Print catalogues will be available by this Friday, May 31.
