The catalogue currently features ­­­106 accepted entries, but that number will grow as Fasig-Tipton will continue to review and accept nominations up until sale time.

“This is our fifth year conducting the Horses of Racing Age Sale, and we feel that this is our strongest catalogue to date,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “The sale has attracted entries from several of the most prominent racing stables in the country, and buyers will find a number of turn-key, quality offerings no matter their budget.”

The sale’s graduates continue to produce impressive results on the race track.

“Since this sale was first held in 2013, sale graduates have made more than 3,500 starts for their new owners, earning more than $19 million,” Browning continued.  “The sale has also produced 25% stakes horses and more than 40 stakes wins.”

The sale’s enhanced online catalogue features pedigrees, race videos, statistical links, Ragozin “sheet” numbers, real-time past performances, as well as an assessment of each horse by the Daily Racing Form’s national handicapper Mike Watchmaker.

Prospective buyers may also sign up for email alerts through Fasig-Tipton’s website to receive pedigree and race-record updates, as well as notifications of new sale entries as they are accepted up until sale time.

The July Selected Horses of Racing Age catalogue will also be available via the equineline sales catalogue app. Print catalogues will be available on the sales grounds by July 7.
