Fasig-Tipton has added a breeding stock section to its upcoming July sales in Lexington, Kentucky. The company will offer 18 mares as part of the Far From Over/Fountain of Youth Dispersal. All will be consigned by Stuart Morris.
The group of mares are property of a partnership supporting young stallion Far From Over (Blame). The 2015 GIII Withers S. winner had been standing at stud in California before suffering a pelvis injury early in the 2021 breeding season that took him out of service for the remainder of the year. The mares that had not yet been bred to him were shipped to Kentucky and bred to stallions there. Due to the circumstances, the partnership has opted to disperse all of its holdings.
All mares to be offered are in foal to Connect, Far From Over or Violence. They will be sold with their 2021 foals at their sides, which are by Catalina Cruiser, Enticed, Good Magic, Honor Code, Laoban, Oscar Performance, Violence and Yoshida. All foals are either Kentucky or California-bred.
With the addition of this dispersal, Fasig-Tipton will now accept additional approved broodmares and broodmare prospects. The dispersal and additional breeding stock entries will be offered in a separate session and catalogue–named July Breeding Stock–prior to the start of the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale on Monday, July 12.
Fasig-Tipton will accept breeding stock entries over the next few weeks. The catalogue will go online and in the equineline sales catalogue app July 1. Print catalogues will be available on-site at Fasig-Tipton at sale time.
“This dispersal offers buyers a quality group of mares, with well-bred foals at foot,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “It also allows us to open up broodmare and broodmare prospect entries to other prospective sellers that may prefer to sell now, instead of waiting for the fall breeding stock sales. It creates a unique mid-summer buying opportunity for breeders.”
Browning continued: “We have considered adding a breeding stock element to July for many years, and this year's session will be a good barometer to see if there is viable market for broodmares in July going forward.”
The mares and foals will sell on Monday, July 12, prior to the start of the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale, which will also take place that day. The July Sale of Selected Yearlings will take place the following day.
