Fasig-Tipton has cataloged 300 selected yearlings for The July Sale, to be held on Tuesday, July 11 in Lexington, beginning at 10 a.m. EDT.
"Buyers expect to find a precocious, athletic group of yearlings when they come to our July Sale, and that's what they will find once again this year," said Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning. "We look forward to kicking off the 2017 yearling sale season with a quality group of yearlings by many of the sport's most successful, as well as up-and-coming young sires."
This year's catalog cover features recent grade 1-winning July Sale graduates Connect and Klimt. They are the latest stars to emerge from Fasig-Tipton's Selected Yearling Sales, which The BloodHorse MarketWatch recently ranked at the top of all major North American yearling sales by percentage of grade 1 winners, graded stakes winners, and stakes winners produced from horses sold. The July Sale is also ranked first by percentage of 2-Year-Old winners sold.
"Our selected yearling sales are statistically proven to be highly concentrated sources of quality," continued Browning. "Buyers in search of success at the highest levels cannot afford to miss our selected yearling sales—and July is their first opportunity in 2017."
Fasig-Tipton will also conduct its popular July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale the day prior to The July Sale, on Monday, July 10. Fasig-Tipton will continue to accept nominations for the Horses of Racing Age Sale through the month of June.
The July Sale catalog may now be viewed online and via the Equineline catalogue app. Print catalogs will be available beginning June 13.
