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.

What a stretch drive. My hats off to Analyze It, he ran super. It was a hell of a horse race. He really has an awful lot of heart. I didn’t expect him to fight back this time. I thought we were going to finish a really good second, somehow he got it done. He’s always been a real generous training horse. You never know how they will respond in that scenario because we never put them in that situation in the mornings. Between his heart and Javier’s ride what can you say? We had no instructions before the race. We just wanted him to ride him by gut instinct and do what he thought was best.”
