Fasig-Tipton catalogs 308 yearlings for Saratoga NY-bred sale

Monday, July 19th, 2021

Fasig-Tipton catalogued 308 entries for its New York-Bred Yearlings Sale, scheduled for Sunday and Monday, Aug. 15 and 16, in the Humphrey S. Finney Pavilion in Saratoga Springs.

The Sunday session will begin at 7 pm, and the Monday session will begin at noon.

“We are thrilled to be conducting this sale back in Saratoga Springs – where it belongs – following last year’s cancellation due to the pandemic,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “We annually offer the cream of the New York-bred yearling crop at this auction, and the quality of sire power and conformation on offer this year is most impressive.”

The New York-Bred Yearlings sale continues to climb the ranks in numerous performance categories according to stats recently released by The BloodHorse MarketWatch. The sale is ranked among the top major North American yearling sales by percentage of Grade 1 winners and stakes winners produced form horses sold, as well as average earnings per horse, and percentage of horses with earnings of more than $150,000.

“This strength of this sale’s graduates in both the state-bred and national ranks is formidable, led by classic winner Tiz the Law,” Browning said.

Tiz the Law, winner of last year’s Belmont Stakes, Travers Stakes and Florida Derby, is prominently featured on this year’s cover.  Also featured are Varda, winner of the Grade 1 Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos in 2020; and Brooklyn Strong, winner of the Grade 2 Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct last fall.

The catalogue may now be viewed online and will also be available in the Equineline sales catalogue app.  Print catalogues are also now available.
