A total of 182 2-year-olds make up the catalogue for the Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale of Selected 2-Year-Olds in Training slated for Wednesday, Apr. 1. Held in Gulfstream Park's walking ring, the sale will begin at 1 p.m. EDT. The under tack show is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, Mar. 30.
“The Gulfstream Sale annually offers the highest concentration of quality of any North American 2-year-old sale,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “This year's catalogue is no exception, as it is again loaded with sire power, depth of pedigree, and quality individuals.”
Past graduates of the Hallandale showpiece include 2019 GI Santa Anita Oaks heroine Bellafina (Quality Road), GI Humana Distaff scorer Mia Mischief (Into Mischief) and current Triple Crown contenders Independence Hall (Constitution), winner of the GIII Nashua S. and Jerome S.; and Feb. 9 GII San Vicente S. victor Nadal (Blame).
“Performance over Gulfstream's dirt surface in the sale's under tack shows has translated to victories in the sport's most prestigious races,” continued Browning. “Gulfstream provides the opportunity to watch 2-year-olds perform over a big, dirt racetrack–which has proven to be a tremendous advantage for buyers.”
In 2019, 59 2-year-olds grossed $29,115,000 with an average of $493,475 and a median of $375,000. Topping the 2019 sale was a son of Curlin out of Achieving (lot 173), who was knocked down for $3.65 million. He was one of four juveniles to hammer at seven figures.
Print catalogues will be available from the Fasig-Tipton offices beginning in late February, while supplemental entries will also be accepted.
