The catalog for the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale is now available on the sales company's website, lexingtonselected.com, and on the Equineline Sales Catalog app. Print catalogs should be received by those on the mailing list the week of Sept. 3.
The sale gets underway Tuesday evening, Oct. 2 at Lexington's Fasig-Tipton Pavilion and runs through Saturday, Oct. 6. The yearling sale will be followed by the inaugural Lexington Selected Mixed Sale, to be held on the night of the Kentucky Futurity, Sunday, Oct. 7.
According to co-manager David Reid, of note is the fact that this year's sale features 143 first foals and 257 yearlings that offer dual eligibility; that is, thanks to mare residency clauses, eligibility to more than one sires stakes program. Most of those add the Kentucky and Massachusetts Sires Stakes to the program to which their sire is eligible.
"As in years past, we have tremendous numbers of yearlings by sires that are most in-demand," said co-manager Randy Manges. "We have 50 Muscle Hills, 50 Father Patricks, 39 Trixtons and 29 Chapter Sevens… and on the pacing side, 59 by Captaintreacherous, 28 by his sire Somebeachsomewhere and 27 by Sweet Lou.
"With so many of these horses, there's dynamite on both sides of the pedigree."
In regard to those trotters and pacers, Equineline app users will notice that in addition to the multiple "sort" features offered, the app has now added a sort option for trotters and pacers.
"Consignors are shooting or finishing up yearling videos and we're really looking forward to getting things underway," said Reid. "With so many live pedigrees in our catalog as a result of current multiple stakes winners, all signs are pointing to a terrific sale." (Lexington Selected Yearling Sale)
