From the Media Team at Fasig-Tipton:

Fasig-Tipton has added eight new entries to the July Selected Horses of Racing Age catalogue, which has now grown to 173 accepted entries.

These new entries are catalogued as hips 566-573.  They include G1 winner WAKE FOREST (hip 566), three-year-old stakes winning colt ALTERNATIVE ROUTE (hip 572), and stakes placed three-year-old fillies CAROLINE THE GREAT (hip 569) and STARVING ARTIST (hip 570).  Also new to the catalogue are two-year-olds WAR BRIDLE (hip 567), who set a new track record at Belterra Park breaking his maiden on June 29, and SPICE IT UP (hip 573), who won her debut by nearly nine lengths at Thistledown on June 26.

All entries may now be viewed in the sale’s enhanced online catalogue.  The enhanced catalogue features pedigrees, race videos, statistical links, Ragozin “sheet” numbers, real-time past performances, as well as an assessment of each horse by the Daily Racing Form’s national handicapper Mike Watchmaker.

Print catalogues will be available on-site at Fasig-Tipton by Friday, July 6.  The July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale will take place Monday, July 9 beginning at 4 pm.  It will be followed by The July Sale of Selected Yearlings the next day, beginning at 10 a.m.

Bolt d’Oro worked three furlongs in 36.80 seconds, and galloped-out with interest around the first turn. Jockey Corey Nakatani, who rode Bolt d’Oro in all four of his starts in 2017, was aboard. Bolt d’Oro worked alone. Nakatani positioned Bolt d’Oro off the rail entering the stretch. Santa Anita clockers timed Bolt d’Oro galloping-out a half-mile in 49.80 seconds.

“I thought it was incredible, in my eyes,” owner and trainer Mick Ruis said. “We know he’s not a sprinter….He’s been wanting it bad,” Ruis said. “We’ll get through this week and see how he’s going for next week when he goes a half.”
