It’s just a day away. Fast-Tipton’s July Horses of Racing Age Sale. Christmas in July.

What a nice addition to the Summer Sales-a-Fun. Horses with some run. Horses with some family. Horses with some future. Horses with a chance.

Great day to stroll around the ole’ ball yard and take a look to see if there are some additions to the stable that can be had, and some possible future broodmares that can be added.

My Top Hips to take a gander at are:

427 — Biddy Duke. She has shown some speed. And, the dam has a chance to be OK. Still developing.

446 — Copper Town. What happens if this one can win a Graded Stakes or 2? Stud duty somewhere, I imagine. Upside.

483 — Holly Dolly Molly. Lot of pedigree here.

521 — Orbulation. Has the race record to be a broodmare right now, and I just love Jack Milton.

576 — New Frontier. Another that has the page to support him in the future if he could win a Stakes event or two.

585 — Trace. May be the top page in the sale. Must see, for me.
