A total of 315 juvenile Thoroughbreds have been catalogued for the Fasig-Tipton Texas Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale, scheduled for April 4 at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. The catalogue is 19.3% larger than last year's 264 horses.
"We had a lot of stakes horses from last year's sale get out there and make money for their buyers,," said Fasig-Tipton Texas director of sales Tim Boyce. He noted that Premier Dance, a $45,000 purchase who had won six of 10 starts and $246,880, including five straight Southwest stakes events, came out of that sale. "I think this year's crop can be expected to make a quick return for their investors as well."
Several juveniles to be offered this year are offspring of new sires such as Include
, Pure Prize
, Storm Day, Three Wonders
. There also is progeny of leading older sires such as Broken Vow
, Carson City, Cherokee Run
, Dixie Union
, Five Star Day
, Grand Slam
, Horse Chestnut
, Indian Charlie
, Maria's Mon
, More Than Ready
, Smart Strike
, Smoke Glacken
Leading Southwest sires represented include Festival of Light, Gold Legend
, Leestown, Littlebitlively, Magic Cat
, Malagra, New Way, Open Forum
, Time Bandit
and Texas' perennial kingpin Valid Expectations
The April 4 sale will begin at 10 a.m. and take place in the Thoroughbred Sales Pavilion located just inside the stable area. An under-tack preview show, featuring workouts of horses in the sale, is scheduled for April 2 at 10 a.m.
