Fasig-Tipton has released the catalogue for its 98th Saratoga Sale. With 255 selected yearlings catalogued, the two-day auction will be held Aug. 6 and 7 at the Humphrey S. Finney Sales Pavilion in Saratoga Springs. Sessions will begin at 6:30 p.m.
“Sire power, outstanding conformation, and depth of pedigree–it’s all at Saratoga this year,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “Every current leading North American sire is represented in this year’s catalogue. Thirty-eight yearlings catalogued are siblings to graded or group stakes winners, 16 of whom are Grade I winners.”
The Saratoga sale was represented by three Breeders’ Cup winners last fall at Del Mar. Battle of Midway (Smart Strike) won the GI Dirt Mile; Rushing Fall (More Than Ready) was victorious in the GI Juvenile Fillies Turf; and Stormy Liberal (Stormy Atlantic) took the GI Turf Sprint.
“The amount of top-level success that comes from this sale, which averages 200 to 250 yearlings catalogued each year, is not only remarkable, but demonstrates the high concentration of quality offered annually at Saratoga,” Browning said.
Fasig-Tipton has constructed a new barn which will be used for the first time at this year’s Saratoga sale. Barn 10 is located on the south side of George Street, across from the sales pavilion.
