A total of 223 yearlings have been cataloged for the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale, to be conducted in two sessions Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 5 and 6, in Saratoga Springs, New York. Bidding begins each evening at 6:30 p.m. With no racing on Mondays during the Saratoga meeting, prospective buyers will have a full day to devote to shopping Aug. 5

“We have an outstanding group of yearlings to present to buyers once again this August,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “Sire power, depth of pedigree, and quality conformation will all be on display once again at Saratoga. The Saratoga Sale is statistically proven as North America’s leading source of Grade I winners and graded stakes winners. Special horses are sold at Saratoga.”

The catalog for the Saratoga Sale features multiple Grade I-winning graduates Rushing Fall (More Than Ready, 2016, $325,000) and Stormy Liberal (Stormy Atlantic, 2013) as well as Sippican Harbor (2018, $260,000), winner of last year’s GI Spinaway S. across Union Avenue.

The catalog features a nice mix of proven and up-and-coming sires and includes no fewer than nine offerings from the second crop of Triple Crown winner and Horse of the Year American Pharoah and four from the first crop of dual Horse of the Year and near $15-million earner California Chrome.

Some highlights of the catalog on pedigree include hip 24, a Frosted half-sister to Japanese Group 1 winner Mozu Ascot (Frankel {GB}); hip 50, a colt by Ghostzapper out of a stakes-placed half-sister to MGISW Paulassilverlining (Ghostzapper) and GISW Dads Caps (Discreet Cat); hip 129, the first foal from GSW and ‘TDN Rising Star’ Super Majesty (Super Saver), a colt by American Pharoah; hip 134, a Curlin colt and first produce from ‘TDN Rising Star’ Taris (Flatter); hip 178, a New York-bred daughter of Uncle Mo-Artemis Agrotera (Roman Ruler); hip 206, a March-foaled full-sister to GI Preakness S. winner Exaggerator (Curlin); and hip 218, a Pioneerof the Nile filly out of 2015 GI Alabama S. victress Embellish the Lace (Super Saver).
